Phuket Elephant Sanctuary
Being the first ethical sanctuary for elephants in Phuket, Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is home to overtired elephants who have suffered from strenuous work in the logging and tourism industry.
Apart from rescuing and looking after injured and retired elephants, they also host diverse activities for the public to participate in ecotourism and learn more about the importance of elephant protection.
Some half-day programs offered are a morning/ afternoon program with the elephants and a hands-off experience.
For the former, after watching an educational video presentation to prepare you before encountering elephants, you will get to explore the sanctuary, respectfully observe elephants, and feed them. You also have opportunities to take photos with the lovely elephants.
Other interesting programs include One Day In The Life Of An Asian Elephant, where you can learn further about the communication and behavior of elephants, and the popular PES Canopy Walkway Program. You can engage in their volunteer programs too.
While each program’s itinerary may differ, all aim to support future rescues and elephant welfare in Thailand.
Starting Price: 1,900 THB (adults), 950 THB (children 4-12 years)

Jungle Bungy Jump Phuket
For brave souls that love high element activities, you will likely fall in love with Jungle Bungy Jump, where the jump rises 50 meters above a natural lagoon surrounded by lush jungle!
During your way down, try not to close your eyes, and you will be impressed by the bird-eye view of the beautiful scenery.
At Jungle Bungy Jump, you have a wide range of bungee jump options to choose from. They are Classic Solo Bungy Jump, Water Touch Bungy Jump, Catapult Bungy Jump, and Tandem Bungy Jump.
While the Classic Solo Bungy Jump is the jump that you are most familiar with, the Water Touch Bungy Jump is more exciting as jumpers can choose to be partially dipped into the water and get wet.
However, if the idea of leaping off from the top seems a little too scary for you, you can also opt for an equally fun version – Catapult Bungy Jump, where you will start from the ground and be flung into the air.
Moreover, what would be better than bungee jumping with friends? So, if you travel with groups of friends or even family, do consider Tandem Bungy Jump to spice up your experience. Also, don’t forget to snap some instagrammable shots of you and your friends in action!
Starting Price: 2200 THB
Opening Hours: Daily, 9 AM – 6 PM
Location: 61/3 Wichitsongkram, Kathu
Don’t they all sound very fun? To all adventurers out there, get ready and don’t miss these adventurous activities during your trip to Phuket!
