The Sriracha Tiger Zoo is in SriRacha (about 1.5 hrs. out of Pattaya).There is a huge ground for the zoo with beautiful green grass fields and divisions with interesting statues of animals. They claim a population of 200 tigers & around 10,000 crocodiles (the largest such populations in the world). The Animal Welfare Institute reported that the zoo had been using tigers and elephants in circus shows. As we observed there was a huge were many shows by using tigers , elephants , crocodiles and you can feed them and take photos with them .But If you are a fan of animals' right, I recommend you not to go there.

Ab absolutely ecstatic experience it was for us to explore this resplendent space. It has numerous attractions inclusive of Elephant show, Pig racing, Crocodile Show, Tigers, Ligers, Cubs and a display of mesmerizing life sized statues of the flora and fauna. Sriracha is a place so beautiful and picture worthy!

The zoo is located between Pataya and Bangkok, so if you are visiting either you can give it a visit.

The zoo had a tiger show, elephant show, crocodile show and a pig race.
They also allow you to take a picture while feeding a baby tiger.

Overall, the shows were interesting but it did not look like the animals were treated well here.

They have a buffet restaurant that serves Indian food near the entrance of the zoo.

Very sad to hear zoo is closing. With all these poaching on wild this zoo was definitely a safe place for tigers. Now i fear what will happen to those tigers.

All people who are saying one should not visit the zoo's must remember its the amount collected from tickets which arrange their food.

Tigers cages are way to small, they are made to perform like jumping into rings of fire and its not a part of their natural habit. I just wanted to get closer to nature and animals but all I saw was animals that where captive in small concret cages and forced to perform in shows. The animals are used for entertainment and it sickens me that they allow this to continue. I saw people stick their hand and head in aligator/crocodiles mouth and didnt enjoy that kind of "show". When I was there in 2012 it was obvious they had problems to get the animals to perform so I suppose they drug them to make it easier.
I like animals, but I dont think this is any way to treat an animal.

I liked it more than my son did. I habe meber been that close to such a giant "cat" before. My son fed little tigers and played with them (Huh of love, 10 min). We bought tickets on webpage ticket2attraction.
We took a picture (2 adults + 2 kids) with small tigers for 200B. Taking pic with big tiger 200B, 400B with liger. Each time, they take your phone and make pictures with it.
Elephant show was funny, crocodile show seemd a bit dangerous to me. Tiger show was ok. All shows last approx.20 minutes. We didn't watch pig race, but still it took us 4 hours.
We arrived there at 9am and it was almost empty. It became a little bit crowded at 11am, but still no waiting for any of attractions. Bring sunglasses, hat and sun cream.

It’s always difficult to write a review about captive animals. Depends on which side of the fence you view is. If you totally disagree then don’t visit. If you have an open mind then visit enjoy and don’t make judgments. Croc show scary tiger show beautiful animals elephant show funny.
If you go enjoy your day

We wanted to go to the Tiger temple but the reviws put us off so the tour company suggested the Tiger Zoo. As others have already mentioned the fact that they put piglets in to be fed by tigers and tigers cubs in with sows, it is very un-natural. Our guide seemed to relish in how funny things seemed to look. The Tiger show is where they force tigers in a circus like cage to do things Tigers just don't want to do. Our guide tells us that the Tiger is a solitary creature and they have to train them to lie together. It was like a flashback to the circuses of old that have been all but outlawed.There are crocodiled that performers put their heads into their mouths, These are the most docile creatures I have ever seen, certainly not wanting to run after or chase handlers to the point that you could think they are drugged. It's unfortunate when you visit a place like this and you come away feeling sorry for the animals.
I guess the lure for us was to hold and feed a Tiger cub. This we got to do for about 30 seconds for the photo. When we went back to the cub it was in a cage with only enough room for it to walk around in a tight circle.
I think the saddest creatures of all were the 2 Orangatans that are dressed in clothing and sit with tourists for photo's. It was obvious they didn't want to be there even though they were made to smile on command.
There are so many wonderful things to do in Thailand that don't involve animals. I urge you to choose these or give what would have been the entrance fee to an animal welfare group.
