Lop Buri Zoo is 25-acre zoo is well known for its interesting Asian and Australian birds and mammals. The most striking feature of the zoo is the unusual family of three tigers and four dogs who live harmoniously together in the same quarters. Zoo has a number of crocodiles of different species as well as other animals and the facility is surrounded local tourist sites and activities. An excellent way to spend the day and experience the indigenous wildlife in Thailand.

Read other reviews had spare time so decided to go to zoo with open mind. You are in rural Thailand and not to expect Western standards. The animals looked OK and the zoo was attempting to do their best but there were some very sad exhibits due to the cages pens. Would not say go or don't go. At 30 baht entry at least we were helping a bit. When entry don't go straight but go right for the zoo bit.

Pleasant surrounds and several good shows including snake, orang utangs and live dance performances are overshadowed by the deplorable 1920's style accommodation afforded the primates. Apparently the Thai army run this site and it is obvious that not much money or care goes into the proper and ethical maintenance of many of the exhibits.

Actually, I really love going to visit the zoos because I love animals and birds. Last time, I went to visit this zoo and I felt amazed, so I would also like everyone to see as what i was seeing there. You will be amazed too, I hope

I'd finally had enough when I saw a wolf in a ridiculously small cage, and a sheep in a pen with filthy water that was un-sheared and no way of keeping cool in 40 degree heat. I'm pretty sure that deer are not supposed to live on a diet of peanuts either. A very sad and disgusting place, not a very 'respectful' treatment of the animals. Do no not contribute to the funding of this place, do not go if you have any care for animal welfare or you will regret it as did I... You've been warned!

I wish I had more pictures to upload but I stopped taking them when I walked out in disgust half way through the visit.

This Lopburi zoo (open 8.00-18.00) was once famous nationwide for its resident orangutans Mike and Susu, their April 1996 "wedding" photo published on the front page of many newspapers. Yet when Mike died in 2002, so did the zoo's popularity. Ironically the local government could fund a new paved road for visitors but couldn't invest in any infrastructure for the animals, no wonder why they all look sad and skinny. If you care about them, don't visit this "prison." You might cry as some previous reviewers did!

genuinely the most upsetting and unpleasant zoo i have ever visited. why on earth would any one want to see orang-utans wearing clothes, being pulled around by their hair? all in all it was a depressing day. should be closed down. poor animals. nothing nice to say about it!

A nice zoo. And yes, we bought the picture they took of us at the beginning. I was lucky to have my nephew give me a personal tour (he's been to the zoo a hundred times). We saw some animals we don't see at the zoos around here.

it a ok place to visit once, they have many animals, but it like any other small zoo. some of the animals look sick or under cared for. it better to go to safari world in bangkok. mid priced for the area.
