Visited here with wife, her parents and our 5 year old son. This is a beautiful zoo, very open, you can get close to the animals and feed them. They also have great shows throughout the day. The zoo itself is very big, if you like to walk around you would need the whole day, if you have a car... More

This is the perfect alternative to all the other Zoo's or animal attractions in Thailand that treat their animals with cruelty and keep them in tiny unworthy cages. This zoo offers plenty of space for all its species in their natural environment. In fact, some animals are even free to walk and climb the entire park. As a result of... More

I saw many people visit this open zoo and so tried last year with my 11 year old son. The good thing is you can rent a car with driver and visit the zoo in an air-conditioned car sometimes. (of course you have to get off to feed the animals behind the fence). Deer are having their walk with no... More

This zoo is set in the mountains. There are 2 main areas and each are on different parts of the mountain. The zoo is best experienced with a golf cart because it is too large and steep to walk around. As you are driving I am certain you will come into contact with animals that are walking around freely and... More

Very interesting place, feeding rhinos and elephants was the best. Best to go on weekday and avoid Public Holidays, place will be packed.

About 50 km from Pattaya on the way to Bangkok lies this beautiful zoo.Extremely good for children as many animals can be touched. We visited the park a few years ago and it has improved.We loved the orang utans and had taken pictures with them on our lap.

This is a well run zoo where the welfare of the animals seems paramount. I visited Marwell zoo in UK last week and whilst that was good, this place is better. Several of the same animals such as giant anteater have bigger enclosures here. Not perfect as there are some old cages for coatis etc. but getting there and new... More

An open zoo with a large number of animals. A great place to walk and relax among the tropical rain forest.
