let's talk about elephant ride at Amber palces, Jaipur India.

I am very much appreciated that tourist are concerned about the elephants. some of them do not use elephant ride at amber palaces. because they think it is not good for Elephant. It is a kind of cruality to elephant.

India is quite a safe country, Baisc Indian culture treat guest as god but always use your common sense, and follow basic security rules. Don't be afraid to travel solo, and don't be afraid to spend some time with locals.
