Rafting was always on my list. Thanks thrillophilia for the wonderful package to untick one from my wishlist. Amazing experience.
"Amazing experience at best rate, even local operator are above this price"
Thank you guys for customising the Thailand honeymoon package as per our need. Thanks to team for suggesting us lot of activities along with sightseeing. With snorkelling, island hopping, dinner cruise, helicopter ride, kayaking, waterfall trekking etc, the package gave us the best vacation time.
I have gone through a lot of reviews about honeymoon in Thailand and I think both me and my wife have the same experience to share. Thailand is a gem of Asia which stores heart-aching beauty of islands and a wonderful greenery. But what we have enjoyed the most was the Como Shambhala Spa which was a complete retreat from the problems of our mind and soul. It was rejuvenating.
I booked Thailand for our honeymoon after one of my friends suggested me Thrillophilia. I wanted to go to Bali but my wife had Thailand in mind. Certainly, Thailand was the perfect stop for honeymoon days and both of us liked the way the island treated us with plenty of exciting sights. The first visuals of the island made us believe that it was going to be a nice trip altogether. Pattaya Tour and Coral Island Tour were offering us so much thrill. A cruise in Phuket was showing us the final rays of sun sinking into the turquoise blue water. Marvellous sights taken over the whole island. Great trip and I appreciate the service provided by the local travel agent in Thailand we got connected with.
This was my first-time experience of zip-lining in Phuket and visited here with my husband. The guides were helpful and Highly recommend.

It was an amazing day trip of 6 hrs. I took the early morning slot. I enjoyed alot and we did so many acitivities with elephants like we had done swimming with them also we had experienced Mud spa with the elephants and also clicked their beautiful photos. Everything was very well organised by Thrillophilia. Snacks provided were also very tasty and healthy. It was a satisfying Tour. Thank You Thrillophilia....

This place is a little Elephant Village where you can enjoy your day with the elephants. Here you can feed the elephants, play with them, click countless photos (The sanctuary also has an in-house photographer who captures every moment of your day all the snaps are later posted on the sanctuary's Facebook page from where they can be downloaded for free), and enjoy bathing with them. The elephants at the sanctuary looked healthy & happy and were very well taken care of. We had a fantastic time & an incredible experience while feeding, bathing, and playing with the giants. I would consider this a must do for all ages while visiting Phuket. The Guide & Mahout's were very friendly, knowledgeable, and were very passionate for what they do. They educated us with many unknown facts about Asian/African Elephants. Cherry on the cake- Free Elephant Sanctuary Souvenir & Lunch Buffet! It was an absolutely phenomenal experience from start to finish. Let's stop the abuse of elephants & help sanctuary's like this ? *During your visit, do not forget to bring your sunscreen lotion, hat/cap, swimming costume (this would be used while bathing with the elephants), a towel (Rental Option @ 50 Tbh) and a pair of clothes to change after the bath. Not to mention- the sanctuary does not offer any sort of elephant ride. Pros: Free Pick & Drop Services Free Water & Meal Inclusions Souvenir Shop Clean Restrooms & Showers Facility In-house photographer to capture every moment (Later they share a Download Link on Sanctuary's Facebook Page) Energetic/Friendly/passionate Guide & Mahouts Most important- You can find the elephants in their natural habitat Keep Calm & Love Elephants!
As we know Phuket is a very beautiful location and it is also known as the heart of Thailand. we enjoyed the speedboat ride from Phuket to Phi Phi. it was an amazing experience at Phuket. then we headed to Krabi, which is also a very beautiful place with white sand beaches. Thanks Thrillophilia for such an amazing experience.
