Phuket: A day out in Island Safari

I like elephants! I like almost all kinds of wildlife. But when I was so excited about going for an elephant trekking, one of my friends was reluctant to do so, because she was scared of furry things, and of course she's afraid of getting too close to animals. Howeve when we reached Island Safari, she changed her mind. =) So you see, gigantic elephants are cute afterall!

It's always crazy to go for outdoor activities without sun shades. First activity of the day -- 4x4 safari jeep ride.

Finally we arrived at the river bank. That's our second canoe activities after the first one 2 days ago at Phang Nga Bay. This one was exciting, we didn't even have to paddle hard, basically the canoe was flowing with the tide. However we nearly missed catching the rope on the other long tail boat to go back to where we parked the jeep!

And guess what... our friend's canoe was caught inside a whirl pool near the river bank. There was a broken bridge at the side and while they were paddling, their canoe went offside heading towards the bridge. Poor them as the water was flowing quite fast and they had to go against it to get out from there. What a mess.

When we got back to the Safari, and went for Ox-cart riding. There were lots of poo poo all over the ground... and the ox was peeing even it's walking! Stinky poo poo and pee pee...

Then we watched Muay Thai (Thai Boxing). I was quite disappointed when I knew that we wouldn't have enough time to watch Muay Thai during the visit because the first 3 nights we were enjoying food and massage. But this 'educational' demo was just in time as it's good enough to show how they fight (it doesn't matter lar...since no time to spectaculate a real fight).

Finally came the elephant riding time! These giants are adorable too. But only they stink (all wildlife stinks, just accept that).

The "hairy porter" asking to be fed. Just pay for the bananas, they're not costly.

So finally I was riding on the elephant! Bumpy roads up and down the hill. It was jerking as if you're excelerating and then braking frequently... good experience. Worst when it's going down hill...was a bit scary.

Last but not least, meet Miss World 2008, Samlee. The beauty queen loves shaking hands.

Monkey plucking coconut. Something special for the Caucasians but that's what we call it a day for the monkeys in the villages here in our country too.

In conclusion, don't miss the program. Spend a day out in the green with the animals. Or at least try the elephant ride. Like I did. I love it.
