Take a taxi to the farm, entrance fee gives you a good 3 hour stroll crocodiles hatch in your hand that's how precise this place is run, I visit every year and now they start upgrades it's self funded,wander the gardens with elephant shows crocodile and tiger shows the pez de resistanće is when you watch rejected cub on the teat of sow pigs and visa versa but the hand feeding of a young cub I don't have the language to exspress it's a must

Entry for an adult is 450 baht - I can think of many better ways of spending this..... Give it to a tiger conservation society or simply rip the money up and throw it in the bin.

This place is a "sausage factory" both for the animals and the visitors. It has no conservation or educational value whatsoever........unless it is to teach us how NOT to treat animals or make money from gullible bus-loads of tourists. I also suspect that a significant income is also generated from the animal carcasses.
A rank smell of tiger musk urine permeates the entire place. I've heard there are over 400 tigers at the zoo, mostly Bengal subspecies not indigenous to Thailand. I began to wonder where they kept the ones not on display...even the display cages were rather small bare and overcrowded, some with rank pools of green stagnant water. It made me wonder what the cages for the tigers out of the visitors sight might have looked like.
The zoo puts on pathetic 19th century style circus shows. In one cage a large tiger sits motionless whilst piglets trot about the rest of the room...the implication is of species living together in harmony - which is inherently false. Another example is an enclosure with a sign declaring the co-existence of ducks and crocodiles living in harmony....except the ducks seemed to have disappeared.
Next to the tiger with the piglets was a room decorated with a quasi-medical theme presumably to give the impression of a nursery. In here a sow was confined between railings to keep it in position whilst a mixture of piglets and tiger cubs roamed around her. Obviously the intention being that these animals would be suckled by the sow. This raises the question WHY??
If the cubs need to be suckled by a pig, what has happened to their mother? Have these un-weaned cubs been wrenched from their mother purely for our entertainment?...is the mother dead? If that is the case there seem to be a lot of maternal deaths at the zoo as this is a permanent show.
The practice of suckling cubs on pigs is common in one place in particular - tiger farms. Here tigers are raised for butchering and distribution in the Chinese medicine trade. In such farms the females are impregnated so often that they are unable to feed so many litters, so in order not to loose any valuable stock, pigs are used to feed the cubs until they are old enough to be fed by the farm an subsequently killed for tiger parts.
Other side shows - I was a little concerned at the crocodile show as most of the animal lava peered to have hardly any teeth.
Pig racing - loud music, and commentary in Chinese or Korean and a group OK f pigs are hussled from one end of the concrete channel to the I thee and then back again. Why do they have so many pigs? Well all those tigers have got to eat something, so why not make their food bring in some extra cash first?

def one of the highlights of our trip.
Neatly maintained this is located in a calm and serene location. The main attractions being the Pig show, crocodile show, tiger show and the Elephant show which was the biggest attraction for me. This is a must visit place and I would recommend this to all those who are visiting Pattaya.
