The Palace of the Elephants. The book says there are 999 elephant statues here. Mike says he only counted 993!!
"It's bloody cheap, mate," said in a Thai accent is something we have come to hear atleast 20 times a day here, all you have to do is walk down the main beach in Patong
. Luckily we are staying back from the beach and up the hill a bit!! It is a beautiful place though and you can definitely see why people love it here. For us though we are happy just chilling out away from the tourist mecca! Last night we went to an absolutely outstanding attraction (thanks to Mum and O telling us how fantastic it was and giving Mike a ticket for his birthday)! Fantasea Elephant Palace was awesome! Inside the palace is the most amazing theatrical, acrobatic, animal and evey other kind of show you can think of. For me the highlight was the elephants walking down through the crowd. The fact that we had booked in advance meant we had a seat two rows back from the stage. We could feel the heat from the fires and the rain that fell from the top of the stage!!!!! You can't take cameras in here so I just have one photo on the blog to give you an idea but it is truely awesome! By the way, I REALLLLLLLY want an elephant!!
