Interesting things to do in Phuket: Visit the Safari Elephant Club
If getting up close with elephants is on your bucket list then elephant parks are the best places to do so in a way which causes the minimum harm and disturbance to the elephants. You can touch, feed and also bathe them in rivers.
Some of the popular Elephant parks you can visit are Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Phuket, Elephant Retirement Park Phuket and Phang Nga Elephant Park.
As the longest-running elephant trekking camp in Phuket, the Safari Elephant Club is the place to be to get up close to these magnificent, intelligent animals. Located on the hill, at the entrance of Patong Beach, it's surrounded by modern buildings. But once you're on the back of your elephant, you'll be headed for the mountain, overlooking Relax Bay and Patong Bay. You can even strike a pose with a baby elephant, making great fodder for your Instagram feed.
