Hi everyone. My wife will be at the Indigo Pearl for 8 nights next month. While we intend to do a fair bit of lounging around we'd like to do a few excursions. In particular, my wife wants to do an elephant safari (of course), I'd like to go to somewhere with some decent snorkeling, we'd like to go to Patong to the markets for a day and I'd also like to take in the night time "sights" of Patong too. ;-)
Any suggestions which elephant safari, or other animal related activities - I only want to deal with outfits that respect the animals. Seedy and sick looking tigers on chains etc are not my thing and I choose not to support such operations.
As I understand it, the Pearl has a courtesy bus to / from Patong during the day. But what about at night?
There is also the national park nearby - can one visit that, and if so what is there to see?
Anything else around Nai Yang apart from the oft mentioned eateries - decent little bars, etc?
Cheers.Edited: 1:45 am, August 03, 2012
