“Beautiful landscaping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

After visiting the Open Zoo, this was ok. I felt that the giraffes had so little space to walk around and I felt sorry for the elephants that were all chained up (I guess for safety).We left halfway through the crocodile show because my son got bored. It was definitely worth going to because my son had never seen crocodiles before.

“Amazing stones, cruel people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Million years stone park is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Pattaya by car. It is easy to find due to many road sings that lead to the parking place. There is enough space for all the arriving cars. The admisson fee is 500 batt for an adult and 200 batt for a child. Surprisingly no one checked if we had tickets or not at the entrance. When you step in you are overwhelmed with huge tree trunks that have become stone with the years. You can touch them but it's still unbelievable that this piece of wood is that old. The park itself consists of two parts: one with stones and the other with animals. You can watch and even feed dozens of crocodiles, several tigers including the white one, some birds and monkeys. Visitors are offered to be photographed with a baby tiger sucking milk from a bottle. Once the photo is taken, the bottle is taken away too and the poor creature cries desperately. This is cruel. The older tigers that serve as the photo background just lie indifferently but I do not think they enjoy the process. Crocodiles are more lucky - they swim in the lake and people feed them with chicken. On the other hand, the local restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes from crocodile meat - from soup to barbeques. So probably it's better to smile at the camera than swim and then get eaten by tourists. But for this sad animal story we liked the park very much. The stones have amazing shapes so it's great to look at them as a miracle done by Nature. The kids enjoyed crawling on them. There is also a big play ground for kids and lots of benches to sit on during the walk. Apart from the crocodile dishes you may get a standard noodle soup for 50 batt. There are also plenty of stalls with cold drinks and ice-cream. All in all, we spent some wonderful hours in the park and plan to visit it again. The stones are admirable.

“Very Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Nothing to dislike here. A great place for a day trip, very interesting and great fun.
The park is very well laid out and maintained to a very high standard. The fossilised tree trunks along with the incredible shaped stones are of great interest. Then there are the tigers, elephants and most astounding of all the crocodiles which one can feed and tempt with meat on the end of a line dangled over the water from a raised platform.
At set times during the day and at a separate location in the park, they hold crocodile shows, where staff interact with them. Members of the public if they so wish can elect to have their photo taken whist sitting on and interacting with a crocodile, (at your own risk).

“Ok...i guess!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Its just your standard zoo...don't bother with this place. It's sad to see the elephants chained up and made to perform. Nice gardens though.

“beautiful park, didnt like the crocodile show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This is a really beautiful park and we enjoyed walking around in it. Feeding the elephants was the best part eventhough my husband loved feeding the crocs more! You get to see a crocodile show included but i didnt like it at all. Yes the guy is brave to do what he does but some of it seemed cruel and disgusting!
