Practical information about Surin
If you plan to come to Surin for the Elephant Festival, it is highly advised to book your hotel room in advance or you will risk to have to sleep far away from Surin. On this occasion, accommodations take the opportunity to raise their prices by 20 to 30%. Here is a selection of hotels in Surin you can book online
As for us, except for Round Up Festival, we prefer to stay in Si Saket, a smaller and more pleasant city. But once again, I am not a big fan of this festival showing trained elephants which often have wounds and would be happier living in peace in a sanctuary.
