Thailand was awesome! It was a huge goal of mine to ride an elephant in Thailand and I was so excited to get to do it! We did another sore excursion in Phuket that took us to an Elephant Camp where we watched a baby elephant show, a monkey show and of course, take an elephant ride.
So, we made the mistake of not eating lunch before we left for this trip, and so when the took us to a Cashew Factory we were starving. We skipped right over the history, and nut demos and went right for the free samples. We sat and shared a lunch of wasabi cashews and a coke.
Next we went to Phuket's
largest and most sacred temple, Chalong Temple.
I really wanted some thai food while we were actually in Thailand, so we walked up and down the main street along the beach until we saw a place we liked. After dinner I wanted to put my toes in the sand and test the water (it was super warm!) and we had a nice evening walk down the beach. It just so happened that the locals were celebrating the kings birthday and launching candle luminary parashoots into the air and setting off fireworks. It was almost too good to be true. So beautiful!
I completely loved Phuket and I wish we had had more time here!
Last stop is Hong Kong.
