Phuket Half-Day Safari Tour

Phuket, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My husband and I had such an amazing time on this safari tour. The tour description does not do it justice! Not only do you get to ride an elephant through the mountains but it entails so much more. You also get to watch the younger elephants train and do tricks which was so special (I was able to purchase the painting the elephant painted during the show too!). We learned how Thai produces it's curry, coconuts, rubber and rice through actual demonstrations. We also had delicious Thai tea and coffee with a snack onsite as well. We had pictures of us sitting on an ox and took a ride on a cart pulled by the ox as well. The tour is very interactive and our guide was so funny and kept everyone engaged.

We also opted for the boat ride which was enjoyable and would recommend. Lunch was great and the staff was so friendly and awesome! This was such a well rounded, high quality tour and more importantly, the elephants were treated well there. A must experience for anyone going to Phuket.

Siam Niramit Show in Phuket with Hotel Transfer and Optional Dinner

Phuket, Thailand

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The food at the buffet was not good or enjoyable. The park is extremely touristy with theme park-like games, and shops to buy souvenirs. The show was good and entertaining and my husband's seat was selected to go on stage which was a great surprise.

Phuket Introduction City Sightseeing Tour

Phuket, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The city tour is a must if you want to see great views and learn more of Phuket! We started the day by driving to different scenic views around the western side of Phuket where all the popular beaches are. We then went to Chalong temple and had lots of time to soak everything in and explore the area. We also went to the cashew factory and went to the worlds largest jewelry store and learned about how they make jewelry. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and did a great job managing time and our group.

My husband and I were not expecting so much out of this tour but it offers so much and covered so much of Phuket!

Canoe Cave Explorer Phang Nga Bay Tour from Phuket

Phuket, Thailand

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour is a must if you are traveling to Phuket! This is a full day of kayaking (a guide kayaks for you) and you enjoy the many caves and lagoons throughout Phang Nga Bay. You also get great views of James Bond Island so I wouldn't bother doing a separate tour to see it. Our guide was hilarious and stayed behind in the lagoons so we could see monkeys, toucans and other birds/wildlife. A monkey even jumped on our kayak which was shocking/amazing!

The lunch on the boat was great and Phang Nga Bay has clam waters so you won't get sea sick like traveling on a speed boat to the Similan Islands. We ended the day by stopping at a beach and taking a swim for a good amount of time and then headed home.

This trip is a great way to see Phang Nga Bay and the breathtaking scenery it has to offer. It's truly a memory my husband and I will never forget!
