We went to this zoo because I wanted to see some animals native to their country. To my surprise, the animal are kept in appalling conditions. They look very sad. I was even more shocked when I seen a hippo that had about 30cms of water in a puddle about 1m x 1m, an Australian salt water crocodile with no... More

The price has since gone up. I paid 150 baht in January 2015 which is the price for foreigners. The price for locals is listed at 70 baht. The are is too small and too enclosed especially for the giraffes which circled round and around for the 30-40 minutes I spent observing them and attempting to take pictures.

If I could give this zoo a minus rating I would. It's disgusting, the animals look malnourished and drugged. They barely moved and all looked so depressed. The water enclosures looked dirty and poorly maintained. It's just a generally depressing place and should be closed down.

I don't think I have ever been to a zoo and left feeling so depressed. Every single animal looked sad, some cages had nothing in them and I'm sure there was a dead/dying hippo there to. Avoid if you can, they really need to upgrade it! The only enclosure that I liked was the turtle one.

The animals weren't in very good conditions at all, they all looked suicidal. Walking around in circles or packed into very small enclosed areas. I would say definitely skip this zoo and try and find a more remote animal sanctuary. Zoo's should be shut down like this!

Took my son here for his 7th Birthday with his friends, They loved it and had an absolute blast .. The entrance fee is quite cheap. The animal enclosures themselves are in terrible condition. Very very dirty. The Hippo enclosure was dry and dirty with very little water for them to actually swim in. There was no shade for them.... More

My kids asked to go to the zoo and see the animals. So we went. To our dismay we found many of the animals is small cages or inappropriate habitats. Not to mention just about everything is filthy. I was nervous for our health and safety as we noticed a number of animals in cages were marked quarantined. Yet were... More

It was nice to roam around and see the exotic animals as I have never seen a giraffe or panther. I must say though there were many displays that were close or under renovations like the elephants as well as the nocturnal animals. Many peoples reviews state the lion is always groggy and that was absolutely true during my visit.... More
