My Thailand Adventure - Into the Jungle

After our lightening tour of Bangkok we decided to spend another 3 action packed days in the jungle. We were picked up early from our hotel in Phuket and had a three hour bus journey into the Thailand countryside. When we chose to go to Thailand we knew we wanted to do some sort of Elephant experience. There are so many different tours and one day excursions available but we decided to really get into the Jungle spirit and booked into Elephant Hills for a 3 day 2 night tour package.

Having returned from Thailand I can now 100% say this was the highlight of my trip. The whole experience was incredible! The staff at Elephant Hills were wonderful, extremely knowledgeable and made you feel incredibly safe, even in the jungle. If you are visiting Thailand and are the sort of person who loves an adventure I would defiantly recommend taking three days out of your holiday to visit the jungle.
