Elephant Trekking

The island of Phuket in southern Thailand is one of the most beautiful tropical paradises in the world. Not only does Phuket feature amazing natural scenery, verdant jungles, and pristine white sand beaches, but it is also home to a bevy of nightlife and outdoor activities. One of the most popular is elephant trekking, an exciting adventure that takes visitors on tours of the jungle from atop the back of an elephant. There are a number of organizations that offer elephant trekking, most of which are dedicated to the preservation of the natural environment as well as the gentle giants.

  • Head to the Chalong area of Phuket where you will find the Siam Safari Elephant Camp, a stunning jungle that offers elephant trekking and even a chance to wash your giant ride after the trek.
  • Take a break from the bustle of Phuket Town and visit Nai Harn Beach, a quiet sandy stretch located on the south of the island that is usually free of tourists.
  • Hire a motorbike and head to the top of Big Buddha Hill, where you will find a massive Buddha statue and some of the most spectacular panoramic views in Phuket.

Phuket is very easy to get around using taxis, tuk tuks, or private transportation. Almost every hotel in Phuket will arrange elephant trekking adventures, so you can book all of the details without ever leaving the lobby. Most companies will pick you up directly from your hotel, so transportation should not be a problem. From the Phuket Airport, you can catch a taxi to the Patong area, which is the location of most of the accommodation on the island, but be sure to haggle, as the cab drivers do not use meters and are notorious for overcharging.
