We had a pretty good day at Khao Kheow they have a pretty good selection of animals that are mostly pretty well cared for. It is big and has some large gaps between animals so get the bus or rent a golf cart to get around. Facilities such as food, shops, toilets etc. leave a lot to be desired. No... More

Entrance price is 300baht, you can rent a golfcar for 500 baht for two hours or just go around with the free busses. The animals are treated very well and there is a lot of different species. You can get hands on experiences and enjoy the nature like surroundings. The only small thing is that it might take a bit... More

We stayed in the Es Ta Te camp inside the zoo for a night and explored the zoo with our own car the day we arrived and the day we left. The zoo is large and you can drive your own car or hire a golf buggy, its just too large to walk around. Yet this doesn't mean the animals... More

We went for a night visit and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The animals seemed well cared for and we were given plenty of time to look at the animals.

Like - many kinds of birds and animals, not so much cages, you can touch and feed them easily. Can drive your bike or car inside, or can take bus or electrocar inside

We were at the zoo particularly for the night safari. Considering the beautiful landscape and a list of exotic nocturnal wildlife on display advertised in its official website, my expectation to this zoo was high. However, the actual experience was not that impressive. It was rather disappointing. The guided tour by auto tram into the zoo was not up to... More

Very inexpensive, fun hands-on zoo experience. Easy to see everything by foot in 2 hours. Can also drive into and around the zoo by car for an extra 50 baht. A wonderful place for the family to visit. Has everything from hippos to zebra to monkeys to beautiful tropical birds. If you like animals then you will enjoy this place.

First visit to this zoo and I was truly amazed and happy with my visit. So many animals and so much to interact with. This was truly a special part of my holiday in Thailand. Feeding rhinos, giraffe, hippos and ostrich is not something you can do in many places. I recommend going without a tour guide and doing the... More
