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

After reading all the reviews about this Zoo I thought it would be fantastic. So I took my family there for the day. I guess I must have been expecting too much or have been ruined by places like Chester Zoo and the Safari parks in England. Yes you can get close to a few animals but the overall experience... More

Went to this zoo as part of a tour with the Flight of The Gibbon Tour. They took us around in a little type golf cart car, as the zoo is big! Seems very professional, you can feed the animals with foods that you can purchase. If you like zoos and animals, I think you will like this place!!

I thought the zoo was quite expensive when compared to other prices in Thailand; but it was still a fun place to visit. I took pictures with a tiger and on the back of an elephant. The fish pond is nice too.

very nice place to visit and a must in your to do list; Very interesting. Lot of impressions. It is possible to feed and iron animals, make fotos. 's an "open zoo," with a lot more space for the animals than in normal zoos, so they seem a little less depressed about being there. You can rent a golf cart... More

Instead of seeing animals in cages, you are watching them in their natural habitats. Golf card is recommended .

Such an amazing place, you need to book a taxi or you can rent a car and drive to the zoo it's only 35 minutes drive, once you arrive you have 2 options either rent a club cart or ask them to drive you around, for us it was renting the cart and I like to believe we choose right... More
