Start your adventure on your private tour bright and early with complimentary pickup from your hotel in Phuket. Enjoy the sights of local life in the southern part of Thailand as you drive to your first stop. Visit the Sea Turtle Conservation Center for a close turtle encounter. Hear about their species and how they were rescued. Explore the conservation center and meet different sizes of turtles, species, and colors. Next, at Wang Kiang Koo waterfall, our local paddlers eagerly await us at the river bank. As you hop on their gigantic bamboo raft, keep a watchful eye for some wildlife as your paddlers skillfully maneuver the raft along the stream of Kiang Koo waterfall. After this unforgettable experience with bamboo rafting, enjoy playing in the crystal-clear refreshing water. From here, head to a local restaurant located at Wang Kiang Koo waterfall and savor a delicious southern Thai set lunch. Then, visit Wat Lak Kaen. One of the oldest and most significant temples in the area, hear the story of the Buddha's holy relic. Then, set off on your next adventure visiting an elephant sanctuary and meeting the friendly giants. Hear about their individual stories and how they were rescued. Interact with them by giving a meal for the elephants with the loving elephant carer (mahout), then bathe the elephants in a fun mud spa. Lastly, feed them from your own hands while taking some exciting new photos for your Instagram. Finally, before returning to Phuket, we'll make a brief stop at the historical site of 'Police Boat 813.' This site serves as a testament to the incredible force of nature during the 2004 tsunami. After your adventurous day, hop back on the van transferring back to your hotel.
