Something different

The Catfish Farm is a unique place, and very interesting for children and adults alike. It is fun to watch the catfish crowd around the food that you get to feed them. The place... read more

My partner and I visited the catfish farm in May 2017. I would advise not to visit. The place is run down, the animals are not well looked after, the environment in which they live is also run down which is very sad to see. The fish in the aquarium are hardly visible due to the water clarity being almost... More

Its a difrent funny place. Just walk true the jungel and feed the fishes in the ponds, look at the rescued turtels and the crocodils. Feed the crazy goat ore pig. Its just crazy and fun for all ages.

If you've run out of things to do in Ao Nang/ Krabi and are bored, you could do this. However, for all others I would avoid it. It's run by an American woman and her two daughters and they charge 50B for entrance and fish food. When you first walk up there is a monkey there on a chain, with... More

Came across this place randomly and we're delighted, we both had so much fun exploring the farm as we didn't expect to see half the animals that we did! Nina the owner was very welcoming and told us a bit about the place, should definitely go and see the arapaima as its such a cool experience!

The owners have been very creative to turn their backyard into a tourist attraction. Given its name "Catfish Farm", it's not unreasonable to expect to see a farm of giant catfish, but instead you can see some catfish in a dirty pond, some chickens, a billy goat and some crocodiles. We were mauled by mosquitoes, so we couldn't get away... More

This little place is something different. It is all donated animals that would probably be killed otherwise. They have a little monkey, a crocodile, pot belly pig, goats, ducks, geese, rabbits. Lots of types of fish including, catfish, pacu, talapia, arapaima and lots more. There's also a river rapids for a nice cool down. Definitely worth a look

A great break from the beaches, especially if you have children. The place itself may be a little run down, but your surrounded by greenery and animals and its a fantastic feeling. If feeding fish, petting rabbits, feeding little goats and ducks is something you would like doing, this is a great way to spend a couple of hours.

We came here after a tour and visited this poor animals. They look so bad, get treated in a shame way and can't live their live. It is so bad to see this and we would never come back. Hint: Mind this place and go on a better place

Nothing much. Don't waste your time coming here. But the lady owner was a nice lady. We finished going 1 round within 10mins
