Overview

This fantastic Multi-Centre Thailand holiday consists of three nights in Bangkok followed by six nights at a beach resort in Phuket and then two days in the Elephant Hills Resort. Plus a FREE Bangkok City Tour and FREE return transfers from Phuket to Elephant Hills.

First up Bangkok. Bangkok is perhaps the most well known holiday location in Thailand, with fantastic attractions such as the magnificent temples, the Palace and the museums.

Your second destination is Phuket. Phuket is among the world’s finest beach destinations, with fine white sands, nodding palm trees, glittering seas and lively towns. It has something for any taste and budget, with hundreds of hotels to choose from, a wide choice of dining and partying options.

Rounding off this fantastic multi-centre holiday you will spend two days in the incredible Elephant Hills. Elephant Hills are Thailand’s first Luxury Tented Jungle Camps, combining the camp idea of African national parks with the Thai tropical forest environment. The two camps, The Elephant Camp and the floating Rainforest Camp, are both situated in Khao Sok, part of Southern Thailand’s largest stretch of primary Rainforest. Despite being tucked away in the Green, these camps are easily reachable from Phuket. Best of all: Transfers from and to these destinations are included in the package price!

Itinerary

DAY 01 - 04: BANGKOK, THAILAND

Bangkok is one of the world’s top tourist destinations. The city itself is a true tourist paradise, proved by the growing number of travellers coming each year.

There are great varieties of tourist attractions in Bangkok, mostly historical attractions and temples with elaborate architectures and arts. The most famous temples include Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Wat Phu Khao Thong, Wat Ratchanadda, Wat Traimit, Wat Benchamabophit, Wat Bowon, and Wat Sutat.

There are palaces, museums, parks, and a wide array of shopping centres, from luxury malls to flea markets and street markets such as Chatuchak Weekend Market, Sampeng Market, and Pahurat Textile Market.


DAY 04 - 10: PHUKET, THAILAND

Your days at leisure can be spent by simply relaxing on the one of the many white sandy beaches or exploring the many sights of the island. Whilst on the Island of Phuket you can visit several of the other Islands of Thailand such as Phi Phi and Krabi. You could also take a speedboat trip to Phang Nga Bay which was made famous by the James Bond film ‘The Man with a Golden Gun’. Why not try a canoeing adventure or even river rafting.


DAY 10 - 11: ELEPHANT HILLS

 

DAY 1: THE AMAZING ELEPHANT EXPERIENCE

Welcome to Elephant Hills Camp

Pick-up from your hotel in Phuket and transfer to Khao Sok. En-route, glimpses of tropical rural life here in southern Thailand can be caught. Upon arrival at Elephant Hills Camp, buffet lunch is served at 12:00pm, a variety of delicious Thai dishes cooked not too spicy awaits you.

Time travel on a canoe trip

After lunch you can relax during a jungle river canoe trip down the Sok River. The canoes are very stable and safe; life jackets are provided as well as a local river guide to paddle the canoe. Drift along the jungle river passing Limestone Mountains and cliffs covered with exotic tropical vegetation. Sometimes hornbill birds can be seen flying high overhead or reptiles basking in the sun on the riverbanks. From the canoe you can experience some of the last areas of primary rainforest, a world that has changed little in thousands of years.

The amazing Elephant Experience

Get out of the canoe and head over to the elephant park. Here you can see, touch and learn about the life of Thai elephants and about the Elephant Hills elephant conservation project. Your guide will also teach you about the mahout, the elephant caretaker. While participating in our amazing Elephant Experience you will get very close to and even get your hands on these magnificent animals, you will have the chance to interact with them and learn the secrets of their mahouts. You will prepare and feed them one of their daily meals, including their dietary supplements that help with their digestion and their overall well-being, then watch them bathe before you scrub and wash them clean. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to really experience the Asian Elephant, this part of the world’s largest land animal!

The laid-back evening you deserve

After all this activity close to nature it is time for a hot shower in the unique bathroom of your luxury safari tent. Relax and enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding jungle-covered mountains – this is 100% real nature! A wide selection of cocktails, wines and spirits is available at the “Jungle explorer’s club bar”. Optional evening entertainment includes a movie presentation, a traditional Thai dance performance from local school children and a cooking demonstration, where you learn how to properly prepare Thai specialities. At 8:00pm it is time for dinner in this unique location beside the rainforest, the sounds and the atmosphere will make this a memorable meal. Spend the night in your luxury safari tent with a comfortable bed, reading lights, hot water and a western-style toilet. This is real luxury so close to the heart of the rainforest!

 

DAY 2:   A LITTLE JUNGLE ADVENTURE

Good morning Khao Sok!

Wake up to the sounds of nature and birds calling from the bushes next to the tent. By the time the sun comes up and the mist over the rainforest-covered mountains to the south of Elephant Hills clears, gibbons’ territorial morning calls echo down the valley. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in your tent for early risers; breakfast is at your leisure.

Modern era jungle explorers

Having experienced the Asian Elephant and been paddled by canoe along the river the day before it is now time to come face to face with the jungle by exploring it on foot. It is not an army survival exercise, there are no prizes for the fastest, snakes and spiders do not jump out at you – it is just an excellent opportunity to explore the ecology of one of the world’s oldest rainforests, to see a great variety of exotic plants, tropical hardwood trees with huge roots, orchids, palms, ferns, bamboos, mosses… the variety is huge. Birds such as the hornbill live high up above, gibbons can often be heard calling to their mates, a macaque or a leaf monkey may be swinging through the branches, beautiful butterflies buzz around – every day is different, but it is always truly wonderful to discover the great variety of life-forms that co-exists here together. Walk slowly. Look, learn and listen. Then you too will start to discover some of the secrets of the rainforest. Weather-dependent lunch can be served in the rainforest, cooked in bamboo, an old tradition of jungle explorers from past centuries.

Memories for a lifetime

Sadly around noon it is already time to return to Elephant Hills, and after a refreshing shower the onward transfer to your next hotel or the airport awaits you. All good things come to an end, they say, but luckily this unique experience will remain in your memory for the rest of your life!
