What we will do
  • Our adventurous excursion begins with a short tour where we will see the island's rubber plantations, local dwellings and the mosques (tour of the exterior).
  • Once we arrive at Safari Island, a site which uniquely fuses the love for ecology with adventure, we will have the opportunity to sample the thrill of climbing on elephant-back and the chance to admire the evolution of the hulking great brutes whilst watching an entertaining show.
  • If desired, it is also possible to feed the pachyderm (fruit can be purchased on-site).
  • After the show, we will head to one of the island's most-loved temples, Wat Chaiyathararam or Wat Chalong, a monastery near to the city of Phuket. This sanctuary is also known as Wat Luang Pho Cham, to honour the monk, who in 1876, during the reign of Rama V, helped put down the rebellion led by Chinese labourers, known as Angyeee.
  • The next stop on our tour will lead us to the site where cashews or cashew nuts, one of the island's most important production elements, are produced. During our visit, we will see all stages from harvesting to the end product, and then we will taste the end result in a much-welcomed tasting session.
  • It would be a real shame not to purchase this delicious product to take home with you.
  • The last leg of our tour provides time to purchase souvenirs, local products, handicrafts, pearls and rocks.
