I was part of a bus tour and this place was on the agenda. It is still disturbing me today so I felt compelled to write a review. The animals are living in such horrendous conditions. Filthy water in every enclosure and animals standing or...More

Very disappointing considering the price of the tickets. Really sad to see the animals caged and chained. Monkey and crocodile shows were not up to much. Fans in the arena were in terrible condition. Overall just a very untidy, unkempt place. The only saving grace...More

Avoid this place! They charge 1500 baths for tourist. Thai people pay 100 baths.... 15 times more for stupid tourist. This is the reality. On top of that the zoo is terrible and they don't respect the animals Go spend your money elsewhere please...

Obviously, the price is very high for such a poor place, animals look sad, and "artificially" sleepy, so tourists can make their pictures. But for sure no one can say animals feel good in that dirty place ! Phuket shame !
