From busy, bustling Bangkok to the serene heart of Thailand’s elephant province and the soft sands of Koh Phangan, this two-week adventure is ideal for those who’d like to combine an elephant village experience with a relaxing beach break. Experience city sights, ancient culture and an island paradise in tremendous Thailand, the land of smiles.
The training of domestic elephants by mahouts is an ancient tradition in Thailand, and in sleepy Surin province we immerse ourselves into traditional elephant village life, supporting the mahouts who care for the elephants. You’ll get involved with feeding and cleaning and even helping to bathe the elephants in the river – all great fun !
The traveller mecca that is Koh Phangan has some of the most incredible beaches in Thailand, with white sand, clear water and blue skies at every turn. This paradise island can be exactly what you want it to be - party central or laid back beach culture, rest and relaxation or all-action adventure – choose your own pace and love every minute !
