Elephants are smart and cute. Enjoyed the day trip riding buffalo, eliphant and boat. Felt a bit unsafe when I saw elephant trainers are holding beer can when I rode it.

YES, I think so but you still have to pay the regular entrance fee, and transport to the park, they MAY pick you up at some hotels . Ask your hotel. But I think it's best to make a half day of it at least.
