[HD video below] The 2012 King's Cup Elephant Polo Tournament organised by Anantara Hotels & Resorts will take place in Hua Hin, Thailand, between 12 and 16 September 2012.

Now in its 11th year, sat down with Tim Boda, Group Operations Manager of Minor Hotel Group - the parent company of Anantara - to ask him how about this year's event.

In the HD video interview, filmed in the Elephant Bar at the Anantara Riverside Hotel in Bangkok, you will discover how the 2012 King's Cup Elephant Polo Tournament differs from that of previous years, which teams will be taking part, what on earth the New Zealand All Blacks (yes that is the rugby team) will be doing at the event and who they will be playing against.

You will learn a little about Elephant Polo, how many games are expected to be played per day, which days are busiest, what major social events take place during the King's Cup Elephant Polo Tournament and whether you need to purchase tickets and if so, for how much.

We talk about the transportation the Anantara Hua Hin has organised, how often it will run and where from and from what time, how much it costs to be a spectator and what will happen if it rains.

You will also discover what special items are going to be auctioned during the black tie Gala Dinner on Saturday and how many millions Anantara is hoping will be raised from them, all of which will go to worthwhile charities.
