Exciting Adventures in Phuket

Phuket, one of Thailand's foremost tourist destinations, is a truly unforgettable experience. The tropical sun, surf and sand are complemented by a multitude of leisure activities including hiking, elephant safaris, whitewater rafting and boating. No visitor leaves Phuket without satisfying their sense of adventure, and collecting memories that will last a lifetime.

Just north of Phuket is the Tone Pariwat Sanctuary Station, a pristine paradise of luxuriant vegetation. Elephant rides through the jungle take visitors deep into the heart of the tropical forest, where they can watch the local flora and fauna, including a variety of bird life, at first hand. Elephants are native to Thailand, and these majestic yet gentle beasts offer a bird's eye view of the surrounding panorama, with the mahout riding atop the elephant's head having complete control of the massive creature. Visitors may show their gratitude by feeding the elephants bananas at the end of the excursion.

If elephant rides do not appeal to you, guides will take you around the surrounding countryside, detailing the attractions that surround the area of Phuket.

Whitewater rafting is a thrill that probably attracts everyone, although not all may have the courage to try it first hand. During the monsoon season the rapids are fierce, and even during the dry season are not for the uninitiated. However there is no need to worry, as the guides are experienced and protective life jackets and helmets are provided. Negotiate those rapids once, and it will be an experience that lures the traveller back time after time. The playful splashing - commenced by the guides - finds the inner child in the most dignified tourist.

Another, perhaps less demanding option is a speedboat ride through the surrounding waterways, which will take you at a brisk pace to whichever island that takes your fancy. Snorkeling and swimming alongside tropical fish are some of the delights on offer.

If you are looking for a Phuket hotelin which to spend your holiday or conduct business meetings, there is no better venue than Millennium Resort Patong Phuket. The resort promises an idyllic setting surrounded by the charms of tropical Thailand, an experience to be savoured.
