“Beautiful gardens but left with a sour taste in my mouth”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

The gardens are breathtaking and so many photo opportunities.

But it made me so sad to see the monkeys chained up by the neck. Also the baboon was scratching himself and banging his head repeatedly because of what clearly looked like he was in pain.

The tigers were obviously drugged and chained so people can take photos of them. Made me so angry!

There were some cute goats that had horns. One of the boys that worked there grabbed the goat by its horns and shook it against the metal railing, banging the goats heads against the banister. I yelled at him to stop. So he did momentarily, but resumed his malicious torturing as soon as I stepped away.

They really should take better care of the animals. I should contact peta.

Lastly shame on them. They use children to sell elephant snacks to the audience. They make the kids hover over us and solicit the guests until they give into buying. Its so sad.

“Easy Access”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

This place is a great day out. All areas accessible to a electric wheelchair user. Thailand in General is accessible but purely due to friendly attitude and a willingness to help.

“Nong Nooch is definitely worth your time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

It is a very interesting place, a botanical / nature garden. They had a classical car show, very nice autos. There is an all-you-can eat restaurant that serves during lunchtime, the food was excellent.
We had the all-day trip.
