Elephant Trekking and Elephant Sanctuaries in Phuket

Phuket Elephant Trekking is not cool anymore… now comes the new trend ‘Elephant Sanctuaries’ where you get to play, bathe, scrub and feed the elephants. Elephant Sanctuaries are a lot more fun if you don’t mind getting into a mud bath and it encourages other old fashioned trekking camps to switch to this more ethical activity. people love so much – It would be silly to come to Phuket without taking the time to stop and admire some elephants. You don’t have to ride them but aren’t we are all naturally attracted by these animals? So this is your chance to observe some of them very closely.

You get to learn about elephants and how things are finally changing. It’s slow but you can tell people are really happy about this new approach. They prepare food and soft medication for the animals while listening to the story.

Then for the past 23 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run 2 blogs: Phuket101.net and BangkokUndercover.com, I also manage 30 online travel guides in Asia and beyond, including Phuket.com, Bangkok.com and Bali-Indonesia.com
