Now, many places in South Asia conduct elephant polo tournaments too, and whether you are staying at a Siam hotel in Bangkok the likes of Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel or a Nepali hotel, you can find a place to watch it close by.

Because of some countries breaking the rules and being cruel to the elephants, the Guinness Book of World Records removed all elephant polo records off their books.
