Bridge connecting Phuket to mainland Thailand

Another early day, this time we're headed to Phang Nga province for some Safari/Adventure tour. The day started off with whitewater rafting, this was the highlight of the day. It's so much more fun and exciting than snorkelling. Our raft leader/guide was sexy in a badboy kind of way and so mischievous, we were smitten. (Too bad we had bfs waiting for us back home. LOL - jk) He was intentionally making us hit rocks so we'd capsize! Hahaha or he would splash us with water if we didn't paddle. We had lunch back at the rafting camp, it was surprisingly delicious. We then headed to the waterfalls for 30 minutes of swimming, I was too chicken to jump from the cliff. If only I could swim. We went back to the camp to get changed and made our way to the ATV camp & elephant camp, the journey took more or less an hour.

I swear, I can't drive at all... I had trouble controlling the ATV, nearly fell over too! LOL So I was just riding/driving it at a snail's pace, everyone was overtaking me. The elephant trek was a short one (thankfully), it was a bit uncomfortable but also relaxing. I heart elephants! I got to hold a baby monkey, its fur was so soft... another animal I wished I could take home. The elephant show was enjoyable, loved seeing them perform tricks... the highlight for that show was when the elephant gave one man a "special" massage. LOL


We made our way back to Phuket, we walked around Beach Road looking for a place to eat. We found another sidewalk restaurant, we had a feast worth $15 each! We only paid a total of $30 and we each had fresh coconut juice, 1 Som Tum each (papaya salad), a serve of chinese style spring rolls, one whole fish cooked in sweet & sour sauce, grilled squid and seafood fried rice! We were so stuffed after that, we had to walk it off. The night life over there looked fun, too bad we didn't have a chance to stop & grab a drink or two. At around 11, we headed back to the hotel and started packing up.
