A scenic drive through a charming local village leads you to Phuket’s most ethical elephant sanctuary, nestled amidst a picturesque jungle. Serene ponds, sprawling open fields, and rolling hillsides provide a stunning backdrop for the elephants’ sanctuary.
Your immersive experience unfolds at the Tree Top Lounge, where you’re invited to dive into an educational video documentary.
