Hi everyone! My friends and I are heading for Bangkok later this month. We wanted to see the elephant show in Samphran Grounds. I have a few questions and I hope somebody can answer any of these questions: 1. Does anyone know of a trusted car rental with driver? We're considering just renting out a car than joining a group tour since we're already four in our group. 2. How long does the journey to and from the site take? 3. How much does the elephant ride cost? Is it worth it? Thank you a lot in advance. Happy travels!
