About
Piranha Park is situated 5 minutes from Mhor Peng waterfall and only 10 minutes from the town of Pai. To find us follow the signs from the Hospital, staying on the same road for approximately 7km, it's very well sign posted all the way so you should have no problems. The fishing park consists of 2 ponds and a family run guesthouse all set in a peaceful mountain side location.Get away and escape for a while and enjoy the peace and quiet. We are open 10am to 7pm daily for fishing. Delicious home cooked western and Thai food and the world famous Lasagne...plus the best full English breakfast in Pai..Night fishing is permitted if you are staying at the park. Fishing cost 200B for up to 3 hours and 500B for up to 8 hours plus bait.
Suggested duration

Fishing Park is closed.
Nov 2019
Having fished the lake for many years with great success I was tremendously disappointed to see its dreadful state.Water was at least three feet below what it should be,gardens not maintained,buildings dirty.

New owners failed completely in keeping a great place going and Pai has lost a great tourist attraction.

Closed and no staff at the place

I reached the place for brunch but the place was closed. No staff there and a white guy sitting there, part of the staff, was quite ungentle for explaining the case . A waste of time

Let's Go Fishing!
Nov 2019
Best accessible by scooter combined with the Chinese Village, this fishing hole is a great place to relax, have a beer, play with stumpy the dog and pull fish out of a pond! Some vegan-eating fish, some carnivorous, try different bait for different catches!

From Paradise to Sodom & Gomorra
May 2019 • Solo
For many years I have been comming here, hundreds and hundreds of hours of fishing, even baby-sitting the place for a wee while at one point. My main reason for comming to Pai, year after year. It was truly Paradise, built with blood sweat and tears, run with love, by grumpy old sweet Dave and his awesome family.

Surely my memories related to Dave, his Christmas parties, Hold 'm Games, the awesome work-away couple in the last years and many nights of drinking. I realize, new ownership means a new dynamic, change often is experienced as negative when the previous experience was extremely positive. This occurs. I know.

But...….

This year, now that ownership has changed, I had to shed some tears. The landscaping looked horrific, clearly no maintenance or care. The bar, looked run down and like a massive mess, no stock. Opening hours not honoured. Garbage bins were full (10 days later the same bins were still full) and the lake half empty, unlike I have ever seen. The excuse of draught and no water from the mountains, I find difficult to believe as other places fill their pools and features with water from the same source, and it has rained plenty lately.

In town, those who live in Pai, they feel the same: Don't go up there anymore. An iconic place slowly fading away. The last images posted on tripadvisor by a visitor, a subtle hint, namely: Odd pictures of .trash instead of smiles and fish.

With all my respect to the new owners, please hand the place over to someone who cares. This place has paradise-potential but it needs constant tending, extremely hard work, deep knowledge of hospitality and fish but above all it needs PASSION and LOVE. I am sure the new owners are amazingly lovely people, and I feel bad for posting this, but if one manages to turn paradise into Sodom & Gomorra within a year, perhaps a wake-up call is needed?

Lastly. Stumpy, the dog, looks underfed, the poor dog is no more than 9 years old. He eats about 0.5 KG of rice mixed with chicken meat and bones for Dinner only! If not the Park, at the very least take care of the dog, will ya?

Lovely lady, no fish!
May 2019 • Friends
We spoke to the lovely lady who runs this fishing spot and she explained that there is no water at the moment. It's has been an unusually dry season in Thailand, and there is not enough water in the lake for fishing. The fish and this lady's livelihood are struggling as a result. She was extremely apologetic, and was very upset that people would not be able to enjoy fishing. If you are planning on visiting here, then we recommend calling ahead to check that there is enough water in the lake. She was one of the warmest and most heartfelt people that we have met in Thailand and it was very sad to see her so distressed about the health of her fish. We sincerly hope that the area gets plenty of rain soon.

Spectacular pictures

We were a little bit worried about this place but booked a tour. Tigers are very well fed and cared for, they’re not drugged as some people have written, they’re nocturnal animals therefore calm during the day. The staff were professional and helpful, we loved the interaction with the tigers and our pictures are out if this world!

Happy returning guests
Jan 2019 • Couples
This fishing park is a peaceful and relaxing oasis. By far our favorite place to stay in Thailand. If you like nature, relaxation, and fishing, you will find yourself at home here. Boyfriend does the majority of the fishing, I usually just relax. We stayed for 3 nights last October, stayed 4 nights this year over my birthday and were treated wonderfully by staff who are good friends now! If you ever need anything they are right there to help. Highly recommended stay or even just to fish for the day!

Caught nothing, had a good time.
Nov 2018 • Family
We had bites, and even a fish on the line which we lost, but over 4-5 hours we caught not a single thing. Still fun to hang out and fish however.

Not bad, but...
Dec 2018 • Couples
Positives:
1. There are plenty of fish in the lake
2. Beautiful place to chill
3. Friendly staff

Negatives:
1. The equipment is old and basic (politely said), hence if you really like your game, bring your own reel and rod.
2. The bait is simply bread and it falls off the hook easily. Again, bring your own.
3 The worst thing for me personally is the fact they inflated the price to 200B rather then 100B as advertised. Still not much to pay but I hate the fact they take advantage of tourist whenever possible.

Sorry you feel you were taken advantage of, the price has been 200 Baht for many many years now but it had not been updated on Trip Advisor. This has now been corrected, thank you.

Nice chilled day with great hospitality
Dec 2018 • Solo
Nice surroundings, great food, cold drinks, friendly hosts, fish caught, all at a good price. What more could you ask for? I spoke with people who were staying there and they said the rooms are also good value for money. I’ll be back
