We visited the zoo on the way to Doi Suthep and were pleasantly surprised.
We were able to feed giraffes, elephants, hippos and flamingoes for 20-30 baht. We all were amazed at how close we could get to the animals. It is certainly different to a western zoo. To be within arms reach of a hippo, elephants etc was quite an experience.
We wandered around the zoo at a leisurely pace and managed to spend 2-3 hours here easily. We did not see the aquarium, but went to the pandas for an extra fee, which was good.
We walked everywhere, and it is very hilly, but there are other options to get around such as the monorail.
The conditions for the animals were good, most areas were roomy and clean, There were some upgrades in progress during our visit, but we were able to see most animals.
The gardens were also beautiful with beds full of flowering liliums, ginger and orchids.
We took lots of photos and we all had a great time, even our two teenagers.
All in all a fun day out for all ages.
Make sure you take a hat, sunscreen and water, it gets hot!
