As zoos go, not very good. enclosures and heat makes for a poor animal environment. Give this place a pass, and maybe it will go belly up and save future animals from distress.

First of all you do have to pay more Than a thai person to get in which is accaptable if I say they make money from tourist. The animals are seemed to be so sad. The cages are not big enough and there is not enough game provided for them. They do a seal show what really made me angry... More

May have been slightly harsh here but the Elephants were being rehoused and the Koalas were coming soon. This dampened my thoughts a bit. There was still quite a lot to see however ( I spent 3 hours here) and the reptile world was really good. There is a variety of animals here and given the price its worth a... More

If you are an animal lover this might be a very difficult visit for you. However I do recommend visiting to witness the absolute cruel conditions animals must suffer in. It's a real eye opener. Don't get me wrong it's not all bad, but it is far from acceptable. We are from Toronto Canada and we travel quite a bit.... More

Very nice. Would love to stroll around and have a look at all kinds of animals here. Take a break for fastfood and drink in the park is possible! One more plus point, the ticket is quite cheap (though i dont remember exactly how much now, around 5usd). And not touristic!

Easy entrance lead us straight to the giraffe enclosure where we climbed up onto the walkway just in time to personally feed them. Later on also got hands on with snakes & all reassuringly supervised. Good variety of animals although no elephants as work on going at their enclosure. Along with the ticket came an easy to follow map yet... More

I and my wife really enjoyed so much at that beautiful natural park; you can see there everything is natural, green, quiet and beautiful. In our next visit to Bangkok, We have to go back to see that beautiful park again!

We read reviews before going so did not have our hopes up. It was ok, nothing magical, but a day nicely spent. The thing i did not like was that we paid 150 baht per person for entry and had to pay extra for some parts.

During our two week stay in Bangkok we visited Dusit Zoo twice. Though a lot of the zoo was under construction, the parts that weren't, were great! We have a 5 year old and 2 year and they loved seeing all the animals. Would definitely recommend it for families!

There just weren't many animals. We saw an interesting dolphin show, and enjoyed seeing the healthy giraffes and bear, but they didn't even have an elephant on display. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the train tour gave us a nice overview of the facilities, but the place needs major work. It looks like they're currently remodeling, so... More
