The journey from Bangkok took about 45 mins. The area is spacious and has a restaurant, drinks and snacks stores. We saw 2 tigers at the entrance for photo taking. The elephant show was spectacular, featuring battle field scene and football match. The crocodile show was wonderful too. 2 trainers performing their crocodile taming skills to the audience. Feeding the... More

As part of "GreenBox Travel" land tour package which include "buffet lunch" at this location. It also the venue for elephant shows and crocs show. The food spread is decent consider that the land tour started at 6.45am from Bangkok hotel and only lunch at 1pm. After the elephant show, audiences are given the chance for a hash hash photo...

I had lunch at the location which was a buffet spread. The taste and range is good enough for me. They separate the halal and non-halal side if two separate halls. The restrooms here are clean. I managed to watch the crocodile show to which I did not enjoy. The way the crocodiles were treated was appalling to me. I... More

Really cruel to the elephants - so sad. We went because we were forced to by our guide but I walked out of the elephant show. Even the crocodile show was mindless and cruel. Horrible.

Ely for 'elephants' are really gentle giants, and for something that come from the wilds, these ones are really tamed. We climbed up their backs and had a joy ride around the place and as they went, some people fed them with bananas, and they exactly knew how to reach out for it and straight to their mouths! The funny... More

Without addressing the speculations regarding the treatment of the animals, this park was pretty interesting and worth the visit. It is sort of like a hands-on zoo. While you aren't really seeing the animals in a natural or traditional setting, it is pretty cool to get close to elephants and tigers. The crocodile show was amusing, but the best part... More

If you have never fed elephants or danced with monkeys or seen other exotic east Asian animals up close, then you have to come here!

There's nothing special with this place. We had our lunch their as part of a tour. We watched the Elephant Show which was really boring. The Crocodile Show was even worse, they don't even treat the crocodiles properly. You might as well cross this place off your checklist of places to see.

This was really a terrible experience. The first thing you see in the park is a tiger tied up, and seemed drugged, only so tourists could take pictures with it (fee) There are also monkeys in tiny cages, and it seemed like they wasnt taken care of at all. The crocodile show was horrible, and we didnt watch it for... More
