We were greeted by a lovely western lady who was simple and happily working away at her farm. The farm seemed run down perhaps due to a lack of tourists or cheap entry. We actually had a lot of fun feeding the giant cat fish and walking through the basic paths around the ponds. Was a cheap and simple thrill.

Of course, 50 baht entrance fee is low, but it's not worth it. It could be a little paradise, but, it could be. It's a mess with a lot of rubbish everywhere. And the cage for some animals are very poor. Back to nature.....no, that's something else.

The owner speaks really good English and walks around with a Monkey attached to her. pigs, chickens and ducks walking around, massive cat fish. Worth a visit although short one.

We went on a private one hour tour with a really nice guide. The boys had a ball. They fed monkeys and then, at the end, were able to "play" with the fish at the catfish farm. They laughed so hard when the fish spit at them. Not touristy at all and a delight for kids 12 and under.

It was something different, going back to nature. It's an orchard owned by a Thai man and his Australian wife. They have three lovely daughters. The youngest daughter took us around the farm to check their pets out. There were uncountable numbers of catfishes, big and small. They have wild pigs, two crocodiles, rabbits, geese, piranha, tortoises and other animals... More

Rundown, poorly maintained property, quirky American lady owns the place, 50 baht entry isn't expensive-- but she only needs to feed the crocs, turtles and her random assortment of pigs et al. Zero housekeeping-The animal pens definitely weren't kept clean-- this decrepit ramshackle apology of an animal farm would be shut down anywhere in the western world but then-- they... More
