Melanie and I purchased some hand carved elephants to bring home and all the monies raised in the sale of these carvings go toward charities for children and support for the Siam Safari adventure. We are also amazed as we return from the trek into the main area of Siam Safari to see a HUGE white Budda atop the mountainside. We would have loved to trek up the hill to see the Budda, but our driver was not allowed to take us there on this trip. Perhaps another time!
Phuket's Big Buddha is one of the island's most important and revered landmarks. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata and at 45 metres high it is easily seen from far away.
Our elephant trek was amazing, and the day was only half over as we headed back to the Resort to enjoy the rest of the day. Again, if you visit Thailand, you must ride an elephant....it is a bucket list experience that you will never, never forget!
GOD BLESS - Peace, Love and Joy!
