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.

Nice people , can swim in the river as well. Has seen better days but not easy to keep maintaining i am sure with little tourist traffic recieved to help pay the... More

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
