We hired a taxi for the day for THB 1000/= from outside out hotel (Mr Buapa - 0813836286) and did the floating market first and then Samphran Grounds. It was a day well spent with the family and enjoyable too. Our main attraction were the huge crocs and the show. The elephant show is good and between each show they... More

Twenty years ago I came to this place and had a great time. This time with my two teenage children hoping to give them the excitement I had before. When we arrived, the place was almost empty. It seems this place can no longer draw a crowd. The two tigers used to be huge and beautiful to take picture with... More

the zoo is 1 and 1/2 hour drive, old and need big renovation... the crocodile and magic show is boring... the elephant show is also boring... Riding on elephant is so expensive, even when you claim the picture ( riding at the elephant) is expensive..

Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo is a decent Zoo that is located in the north of Bangkok - a 90 minutes' drive from the City Centre. The Zoo is clean but needs a major renovation as it is looking very tired. There are lots of elephants which i like it alot and also loads of crocodiles. The Animal show is... More

The zoo is clean but felt old. there were plenty of elephants and riding them was pretty fun. crocodile show was ok in the beginning and was boring towards the end. elephant show was fun showing various elephant talents. magic show is boring, kids might like it if they haven't seen the tricks in youtube.

I have visited this place 14 years ago and it was full of people but this time it was almost empty. I have attended the elephant show which was Okay. The crocodile show is a waste of time because the crocodiles looked like they were drowsy. However, my youngster enjoyed the magic show. doesn not justify the commuting.

This place brought mixed feelings to our group. We saw the crocodile show and enjoyed it. But we were really sad for the crocodile because it felt like they were being bothered by the humans. As for the Elephants, we loved them so much. We entered the world of elephant fandom I guess. We saw them act and dance. The... More
