This is truly a great place to go enjoy about 6-7 hours . The animals are in their natural surroundings and look healthy. The open aviary was the best part where we can see the birds up close and feed them as well. Overall a nice experience.

Enjoyed the walk around here especially the bird enclosure which was very big also a bonus of painted storks nesting in the trees and wild monkeys running free, eating places I didnt find appealing, dont enjoy flies on food

This was a fantastic zoo. I loved feeding all the animals. They all seemed happy, although the zoo enclosures looked a little on the small side.

the Zoo itself was fabulous until the brakes on our hired golf cart buggy failed and we crashed into another cart injuring my sister who was driving! they didn't offer us insurance when we hired the buggy which only costs 50BHT. It cost me 5000BHT as they refused to accept the vehicle was defective and I had to pay there... More

Had a great day out with our 8 year old. Even though a bit run down but still recommend a visit as lots to see and do. Our son loved feeding the penguins and he cant get enough of going to the lemur island. Also the night safari was worth it - both price and quality. The show was good,... More

If you want to see animals in an establishment like a zoo whilst in Thailand, I highly recommend visiting Khao Kheow Open Zoo. Although 35km from Pattaya's main city, the establishment as a whole is a lot more sustainable and caring towards the animals. It's a large zoo and I wouldn't recommend you tried to walk around it- hiring of... More

If you want to visit animals near Pattaya, I highly recommend you go to this zoo(300bht entrance for foreigners). There are many animals and they look very healthy. (The open zoo is a place unlike most animal shows in Thailand where animals are placed in terrible environments and are in sickly condition) The zoo is large, so if you have... More

We got a minibus from Na Kluea region of Pattaya, took around 45 minutes. At the zoo we hired a golf buggy, which cost 1300 baht for the day for a 6 seater and is pretty much essential if you are not travelling round by car. The enclosures are well designed with a lot of space for the animals, with... More

This is a nice place to visit love hiring the golf buggy which is a must. 350 baht for the first hour 50 baht insurance then 200 baht every hour after. You can hand feed some of the animals which you pay 20 baht. The zoo is a long drive from pattaya but worth it .
