The waterfalls were fun, but I have mixed feelings about elephant world. I witnessed a trainer pulling a young elephant’s ear to force him to squirt water on numerous tourist. The elephant didn’t seem to do this on his own will. They also forced elephants to stand in line for selfies with tourist as if it was a circus show. It didn’t seem very ethical to me at this point of the tour.
