- Surin Elephant Roundup Show coming to Thailand

October 07, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
A parade of majestic animals can be seen by Thailand tourists who attend the Surin Elephant Roundup Show next month.
Taking place during the Red Cross Fair at Srinarong Stadium on November 19th and 20th 2011, the show is designed to honour the majestic Thai elephants that occupy such a revered position in local culture.
Elephants are treated by the Thai people as symbols of power, grace and royal splendour, as well as historically playing a key role in the day-to-day lives of many, meaning they are regarded as members of the family.
The bond between elephants and their keepers is a key theme of the Elephant Roundup Show, which has been organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand since 1960 and has become a popular draw for foreign visitors.
Those attending can expect to see animals being treated with great respect by their handlers, with the show encompassing feeding demonstrations, banquets and parades in previous years.
A spectacular light and sound performance, entitled The Legend of Prasat Srikhoraphum, will also be put on for vistors to enjoy.
Animal lovers can choose from a large array of Thailand hotels at, including the Surin Park.
