Entrance fee 600B. Upon entering are 2 caged tigers. Immediately you would want to grab your cam and shoot. A little farther in are fenced elephants (adult and baby). You can buy animal food (plantain bananas @ 20B) nearby and feed the elephants while having your pictures taken with them or you can have their official photographer take your picture... More

It was December 31 when we went there so the park was a bit crowded and the weather was humid. We still enjoyed because we had a chance to have our pictures taken with the tigers. The Elephant show was indeed entertaining but I didn't like the Crocodile Wrestling show that much. Maybe because I didn't find crocodiles nice to... More

We had our buffet lunch here..food is just so so... Taste of most of the dishes are blunt and not as good as I have expected. Nothing much good and interesting to see inside the zoo..nothing much unusual. Crocodile show, I would say, is somehow pathetic. It is not so entertaining for me. The crocodile caretakers are just actually waiting... More

It's not worth visiting for adults, maybe for kids. The entrance fee is expensive (500 that per person). The alligator show was ok, but not spectacular. My goal in visiting was to ride the elephant which cost additional 500 bhat per person but I quickly changed my mind when I saw the very sharp pick they use to make the... More

I like elephant rides and this place gave me great pictures with the elephants at close encounter. I also have pictures holding the tail of the tigers in their calm state. Elephant show was entertaining. The crocodile show was also entertaining and kids will surely enjoy the show. There was a magic show as well. Since we took a tour,... More

Having visited the grounds 3 times in 3 years I can honestly say, nothing has changed. Right down to the magic show which still acts out the same tired old routine.The entrance fee of 600Tbht is too high, although I would be happy to pay it and more if the animals were better maintained and treated.If you are an animal...

The treatment of the animals is poor, targeted to posing for framed photos. The show quality is poor, and the food from the food hall made us sick. Expensive park for what is really too many crocodiles is several pools, and a show full of tricks by elephants that have very little space.The elephant rides in the park are pathetic... More

After a scenic drive the Samphran elephant ground and zoo is a nice stop,reasonably prized ,very entertaining ,well organized and clean. The treatment of the animals seems very good,the feeding show was too cute and the elephant soccermatch was very entertaining and funny. There is a very clean restaurant with a surprisingly good buffet to refuel before hitting the road... More

Before I went on my trip to Thailand I researched places to visit and the Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo was a top priority. My only complaint was that as part of a tour group I didn't get to stay there long enough! We began our visit with a sumptuous buffet brimming with international cuisine before racing off to watch...

Elephant feeding and shows, croc feeding and shows, a history of Siam as told by elephants and a football match between them later plus a few magic shows. This place is fantastic and is a must if you are in Bangkok. I've been a few times, often taking guests who are visiting here. I'd gladly go back if anyone ever... More
