My son enjoyed the show with the monkeys doing some cool tricks, however it is overpriced and you can negotiate the ticket price (got ours for half) and the monkeys are treated extremely bad, hit, kept in tiny cages, broken spiritually, sad and very angry....More

Went as it was raining heavily. Entrance fee of 500 baht. The place is so small. monkeys kept in cages & overall environment feels kinda sad for the monkeys. Watch with heavy heart. Not recommended to go.

This place is horrific and everything you should avoid. My daughter was grabbed and pushed over by a monkey. I fear something worse will happen to a child.

I made the mistake of visiting this place as we were going to Tiger Kingdom and the taxi driver mentioned a monkey show was nearby so thought it would be nice to see some Thai monkeys. I love animals and donate to the WWF each...More

A complete waste of time. They chain the monkeys and am sure they aren't treated too well. I saw one of the park attendant hit the monkey with a rod. The place is dirty and I was worried about catching an infection from the monkeys....More

I initially wanted my kid to see the monkeys but felt sad after visiting this place. The monkeys seem scared all time, are caged by chains to their neck and sticked to do the activities. Just skip it. Please.

Visitors should be ashamed to go to this place. These animals are beaten, abused and chained. It must be really stupid to go to such places. Stick to other places in Thailand or India to see wild monkeys and happy and not chained.

Could be better, monkeys and staff seems disinterested and just going through the motions - very disappointing. Sad to see monkeys in this state

Please do not visit this attraction. Until now I have found thailand a beautiful caring place.Most of the people are strong believers in Buddha. How these people can keep these lovely intelligent animals in small cages all day and I suspect all night and bring...More

The entire operation is a low end tourist trap buy tourists aren't really the victims. The monkeys here are treated worse than household objects. All sorts of injuries are visible. Because the monkeys are primates like us,this makes their pain so much more real and...More
