My family booked to go to the elephant sanctuary and it was a memory worth creating! It was incredible. The guide was very informative and funny. And at the elephant sanctuary we fed the elephants and photos were taken by the staff which I might at you did not have to pay for. All photos were put on their site and everyone was given the link to upload and print out. Then we bathed with the elephant in the mud and the washed them off. We were given free souvenirs and a beautiful meal. This was and incredible excursion and was worth every $.

Did the James Bond Island tour. Was a long drive to the boat trip to the island and when on the boat we were told that the boat was too big to let us actually dock at the island. When we got there there were boats a little smaller that were able to land so was disappointed we weren’t able to. Then went to a fishing village on stilts which was interesting but felt like we were spying on people in their homes and bought souvenirs out of guilt.

We did another tour through cruise excursions. The ship is tendered in so all the taxi drivers were waiting to harass us. We were so irritated that we got lost and couldn’t find the tour bus. It took a phone call to locate us!! Tour itself was great!! If only the taxi touts could be stopped. We went back to Phuket after and went to the Fantasia show. Superb!!

So much to do here though it is very humid. We took a land organised tour to Phang Nga including James Bond Island and several caves in a manned, guided Kayak which was absolutely Brilliant!
