Elephant trekking

There are many elephant camps on the island, with Bang Pae, located in the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, being one of the closest. Meet these impressive creatures and their Mahouts, the men who train and take care of the elephants, up close and walk with them as they trek through the lush tropical greenery.

Don't forget to feed the gentle giants and take plenty of souvenir photos. To make this the perfect day trip, guests can visit a nearby waterfall (most impressive in the wet season), visit the Gibbon sanctuary and stop for lunch at a local seafood restaurant Bang Pae Seafood set amidst the mangrove jungle.

Jungle Adventures

The beauty of Phuket goes far beyond the sea, sun and sand that it is famous for. The hillsides of the island overflow with thick tropical forest, and are a natural outdoor playground for adventure seekers.

Quench your thirst for adventure: Plan a jungle trek across the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, connecting the two waterfalls of Ton Sai and Bang Pae; experience the thrill of a zip line adventure in the heart of the island; or plan a day out in the Phang Nga region combining elephant trekking, white water rafting and an exhilarating ATV ride for the ultimate adventure combo.

The Pavilions' staff will be happy to provide recommendations for Jungle Adventures.

Witness the passion and drama of Thailand's national sport amidst crowds of onlookers whose cheers blend with the strains of high-pitched Javanese clarinets, drums and finger cymbals that accompany the fights from beginning to end.
