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

Not far at all from Ao Nang beach. They have the cutest monkey that you can play with and she loves Gatorade. You need to go just to play with it - bring some fruit for it. Also a sheep and a pig and fish. You can swim there - the water is clear - but we didn't. Very friendly... More

Informative and fun feeding the fish. The man who owns this has worked very hard and built it all himself. Beautiful landscaped gardens. There is information about the animals and plants. I was interested to see a homemade poster about rubbish and how long it takes to degrade. He didn't ask for nearly enough entry fee. People are slating this... More

Gee some people get over emotional on here..my wife and I visited the catfish farm and found it worthwhile, not as bad as some are making out in their reviews. An interesting mix of sights loved the massive catfish which you can feed, the baby monkey the owner was nursing on our arrival was very cute. Sure the place is... More

Ouch ! Stumbled upon this horror show of neglected animals. This reminds you that despite all the luxurious hotels, you are still in a third world country. This outfit would be shut down by the authorities immediately in any western country. sad to see it still occurs in Thailand.

Visited as a family with two kids aged 5 and 6. Don't expect anything fancy or a farm. Do expect to get lost walking around someones rather large jungle of a back yard, where various animals roam, various vehicles have been left to rot, and buildings which are either halfway through being built or falling down, and a lot of...

Don't think just visit it. It's really interesting place to vizit with family or friends. It coast only 50 batt for person and you also get a pocket with fish food. It's very quiet and interesting place. The owner is US women which very kind and nice. So vizit it and injoy Krabi.
