Location: Ko Chang, Thailand

We started off the day with some delightful breakfast “buddies” and immediately set off in a taxi for an elephant trek on the island. A half-hour of crazy hairpin turns later, we arrived, and everyone boarded their elephant from a platform and spent the next hour strolling through the jungle. It was a totally new experience for most people, and everyone was amazed at the elephant’s stability on narrow trails and streams. The afternoon was left open to explore the island. Some groups went by taxi to other parts of the island, while some explored the dock by our boat on foot. Everyone returned with fun stories of life on Ko Chang. After showers and a fiesta casserole for dinner, the crew headed out for a few hours on shore to experience some local nightlife.
