What people are saying about Southern Thailand and Andaman Coast

Had a small hiccup where the activity provider’s initial message said pickup was between 6:45-7:00 am and couldn’t get ahold of them when the driver didn’t show, however after reaching out to GYG’s support team it turned out they meant to pick us up at 8:30-8:45 am. After looking up the sanctuary it appeared they open only after 9:00 at anyhow, and thus the initial message must have just been incorrect. After resolving that small issue and getting to the sanctuary, my partner and I had an amazing time getting to experience how these beautiful creatures live and seeing them up close. Pictures/videos were also very easy to take (we even got some of the elephants “hugging” us with their trunks!). They will take photos and send them to your email for free, but you are also welcome to bring a camera/phone/etc and take your own photos. We prep’d food, fed the elephants, prep’d mud and covered them with it, played in the water and bathed with them, and more. Amazing experience.

The experience in general was mostly pleasant, all the staff was kind and helpful, answering all questions and giving a nice and fun tour around elephant home. The very enjoyable part of this tour is the fact that you could see the elephants really close up, and it’s completely safe since before they let the elephants out to the tourists, the make sure the elephants are trustworthy. The transportation was also satisfying, the seats were pretty basic, but comfortable enough for a short drive in a minivan.

Excellent trip, the animals were clearly well cared for (no chains or harsh treatment at all). We got to learn about them, prepare and feed them, give them a mud scrub and then bath them. We then had a delicious lunch. Afterwards they send you all the photos as long as you provide your email address. Really good value for money and I would highly recommend. (One tip - if you get car sick take a travel sickness tablet because the road there has lots of hill and turns.)

the boat is incredibly impressive with ample room for both sun lovers and shade seekers...proper pirate ship windows and a cannon...obviously staff and food excellent as expected but the journey on a galleon proper wood ship...snorkeling and beaches are truly the thing of dreams...

A great day sailing, swimming, snorkelling, fishing, eating and drinking with wonderful crew and scenery. Highly recommended. Thanks for the memories
