Elephant Ride in Vietnam

When I was in Vietnam in Jan 2014, I wanted to visit Cambodia as well to ride an elephant. It turns out the trip to Cambodia will be too long by vehicle so a local Vietnamese man suggested visiting Buon Ma Thuot to see elephants. So that's what I did; took a road trip with some family from Hue to the south. The elephant ride was about $10 american dollars per person and the ride lasted about an hour. Two to three people can fit on the seat on top of the elephant. It was fun and the experience was good. Only downside was that the surroundings was dry dead land and I was hoping for lush forrest. I would recommend it only if you are in the area and not to make a special trip for it.

The experience was good but wish there was more to it. The price is cheaper if you have locals with you versus being a tourist (they charge you more.

About travel stats

We've created this module to compare travel stats between your current city and the town or city featured in the story you're viewing. You can see comparisons to other destinations by using the edit link. You cannot edit the main destination of the story since it acts as the benchmark for the comparison.

Where does the data come from?

The module is powered by Numbeo.com, a site that collects user-reported data on the cost of living in places all over the world.

Since Numbeo does not have cost comparison data for all cities, they use destinations as far away as 80 kilometers. Therefore, your city data may not be available, but a city with a similar geographic location will be used.

What is the Travel category

The Travel category is an index calculated from travel related costs based on Numbeo statistics and purchase data from Barclaycard US travelers.
