Its a nice looking zoo but if you love animals you may be disappointed.Signaling is little confusing. I would say that the animals could have a better presentation The bird section is very poor : don't expect to see beautiful tropical birds. Its just bird aviary. Some emerald doves,ducks, black swan and cacatoes. For the "big cats " I have... More

Highly recommend visiting if you want an animal experience in Thailand. The animals seemed well looked after and there's plenty of food that can be purchased to feed multiple animals. Recommend bringing extra money to purchase food for the animals to feed them. There was also a baby binturong and orang-utan you could hold.

It took almost 3-4 hours by the train which runs inside to see the zoo. Various shows are also organised.the best part is animals are in their natural habitat . One can see them roaming... More

The zoo is abit old. But over all is good. The main reason we are here is because they allow feeding the animals and the kids love it. Animal feed selling through out the zoo. Cold drink and snack stand through out the zoo. Only around 10-20 percent more expensive than 7-11. It would be easier to drive your own... More

We had been looking forward to seeing how this zoo has developed, having seen it at its earliest stages a few decades ago. It is now certainly Thailand's best zoo, with an outstanding collection of native and exotic species. The White Rhinos from Africa were especially interesting and it was possible to toouch them (interesting to see that one of... More

Khao Kheow was a brilliant place to spend a few hours out in the jungle away from the hectic streets of Pattaya & to see some stunning wild cats. In fact it's amazing how only 45 minutes away from Walking Street you can ogle birds of a different kind. I'm an animal lover & not generally a fan on zoos... More

Not bad for a open zoo..... Section where the penguins are under construction. A good place to visit with little kiddos. Highly recommend to rent your own golf cart and drive through the zoo leisurely. 😊😊

I spent 2 hours there today. I forgot to take my licence as I wanted to rent a golf cart to save walking. However you need a Thai licence or your Passport which they photocopy. The charges were 350 Bht for the first hour then 300 Bht per hour after that. I was offered a Zoo employee to drive me... More

We were a multinational group that enjoyed our time in the zoo while feeding some animals. Feeds (mostly grasses and other green veggies THB20-40) are sold on site, which is also additional funds for maintenance of the animals. The area is large, so if you are not up to walking up and down, you can rent their golf cart to... More
