Phuket: Hiking - Walking
A Beautiful Bankgkok On Sea
In Phuket there are not many hiking trails for tourists. The main way of exploring the jungle on a trail is by elephant and what a way to explore. The island has a number of remote locations but sadly there are not many hiking trails that tourists can safely walk along. Phuket is a wonderful island full of activities but with only a few hiking trails along the mountains on offer.
Elephant Trekking in Phuket
Thai elephants used to fell logs and battle on the front lines in times of war, the elephant now is still expected to "earn its keep" to survive. The tourism trade is a way to protect the lives of the elephants, feed & house them and provide an income to the locals. There are many elephant trekking trips in Phuket, just be sure to use only the services of an operation that looks after the health and wellbeing of its animals.
