Day 3 Krong Poipet - Surin. We ride along the border with Cambodia today and visit the spectacular temple Prasat Sadok Kok Thom which was built in the Angkor period. This Temple is difficult to find and we are unlikely to see other tourists here.  We then take a varied track to Surin, and our beautiful resort hotel where we can spend the rest of the day relaxing by the pool.

Day 4 Surin – Phimai. After breakfast we will head north to the Elephant Village Ban Ta Klang, the biggest in the world. With a population of 1400 people and 190 of these gentle giants, they are free to walk in the woods or cool off in the sea.  We will see how the Elephants are trained and watch the mahouts washing them.
