This adventure in Phuket is our island holiday for those who love "soft adventure" activities like including hiking, kayaking, elephant trekking and white water thrills. Choose from our collection of LGBT-friendly hotels and let Purple Dragon take care of the rest and you get a fun and carefree tropical adventure.
Where We Shine: Purple Dragon is Asia's most oldest and largest LGBT travel resource. We save our guests precious time by recommending the best, newest, and most popular venues in the places where we live and work in nine countries. We use only LGBT- friendly hotels, so couples never suffer embarrassing moments. Your tour is private and you have the undivided attention of your private guide. You'll never be herded around on a bus with 40 strangers. Our guests often tell us that the highlight of their holiday was the charming company of our trained guides and their superlative insights into Thai culture.
Travel for the thrills? We have plenty of adventures waiting for you in Phuket!
Our eco-adventure vacation in Phuket is the perfect mix of adventure and breezy resort nightlife. Explore the magic of southern Thailand's wildlife and natural wonders by gliding through the jungles and coastlines. Home base is Patong Beach, Phuket's most popular seaside community. Your personal guide will introduce you to the large gay scene. This trip includes a trip through Phang Nga Bay, exploration of sea caves, an elephant trek and a thrilling white-water rafting trip. You do not have to be gay to enjoy this package. Our straight guests choose us because they know they will get something better from a gay company.
Day One: Unpack, Unwind
Arrive in Phuket. Private transfer to your hotel. Free time to swim, sunbathe, watch the volleyball game on the pink section of the beach, shop, or relax. For dinner, try any of the popular gay restaurants in Patong Beach or any of the fantastic fresh seafood restaurants fronting the beach.
Day Two: Phang Nga Bay cruise and sea canoe adventure
Your first day of adventure begins early this morning with a short ride to Ao-Poh pier, where you embark by boat for Phang-Nga National Park, where you will enjoy the fantastic scenery of Panak Island, Hong Island, and James Bond Island (Ping-Kan Island). Later, you explore sea caves by sea canoe (you don't have to paddle unless you want to). A superb buffet lunch will be served on board your boat. After lunch, stop by Lawa Island or Naka Island for swim.
Tonight our local guide will join you for a private nightlife tour in the heart of Patong Beach's rainbow zone.
Day Three: Elephant trekking and white water adventure
After an early breakfast depart for the north of Phuket Island and cross the Sarasin Bridge to the mainland. (Locals believe that if you can hold your breath from one end of the bridge to the other, the wish you make as you cross will come true). We hope you wish for elephant trekking, which is the first adventure of the day. You and your pachyderm will take you along a cool and shady trail through rivers and jungle. At the end of the ride you will have a brief session of whitewater raft instruction. The wet part of the day takes you through a gorgeous valley, where you enjoy the wild ride on a course about 5km long. The mountain streams provide all of ingredients of an adventurous river trip. Your inflatable dinghy is very durable and easy to control. Lunch awaits at the end of the trip. Afterwards, you take the jungle walk to Tone-Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary Station, where you have time to relax and swim in a waterfall pool. Your last stop is the "monkey cave" at Suwankuha Temple.
Be back to Patong Beach in time to treat yourself to a few hours of spa time. After all these adventures, tonight is your party adventure night. Have a relaxing drink, while enjoying the friendliness of Thai people.
Day Four: Depart Phuket (But you can stay longer!)
Free time until your private car to the airport. But why not stay longer?
