Phuket Zoo

Ten beautiful tigers wait to be touched and enjoyed at the Phuket Zoo in addition to an elephant show, a monkey show, and a collection of gorgeous tropical birds. It's a relaxing, charming environment for the family.

Gibbon Project

The Gibbons are an endangered species in Southern Thailand as they have been hunted near extinction for export to zoos. Ten years ago, they worked in Phuket's bar amusing customers. Today, the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project works to restore the numbers and the dignity of this native animal.

Golf Courses

Blue Canyon Country Club 
hosted the Johnnie Walker Classic twice and continues to attract an international caliber of golfer. Recently opened a second Lakes course where the public is invited.

The Blue Canyon Country Club opened the Canyon Course in 1991 on a rehabilitated Phuket tin mine that was abandoned once the valuable ore was depleted. In the past eight years, the club has hosted the prestigious Johnnie Walker Classic twice as well as the Honda Invitational. And this year the Blue Canyon Country Club was named the Asian & Pacific Golf Course of the Year in the 1999 Hertz International Golf Travel Awards.

Not content with one award winning course, a second Lakes Course, co-designed by Yoshikazu Kato and Gary Player, was opened for play on 1st March, 1999.

The Lakes Course has been designed for a broader range of golfer with silver tees being added in between red (ladies) and white (mens) tees. With blue and black tees, a total of five sets of tees offer a bigger difference in overall distances. Whatever length a ball is hit and whatever standard golfer plays the course, enjoyment is the result on this beautifully manicured golf course.

"We consider the Blue Canyon Country Club as the ultimate golf retreat designed by nature," stated General Manager Martin Carpenter. "We are proud to offer not only two world class golf courses but related services as the Gary Player Golf Academy, fitness center, conference facilities, swimming pool, tennis courts, Thai, Japanese and continental cuisine, plus 48 deluxe rooms and suites with spectacular views of the Canyon Course."
