Drugged animals forced into photos with tourists and forced to do tricks underwater. 1 star comments are correct.

What a terrible zoo! the term animal abuse has been invented here. especially the elephant shows are nauseating. That this zoo still exists is outrageous. Do not go here, if you have a heart for animals.

If you have any conscious for animal welfare, you will NOT put your money to continue the diabolical mistreatment of Elephants.

This zoo must be on your itinerary if travelling to BKK or PTT. good array of animals. We missed some shows due to rain. Would recommend hiring a golf cart if travelling with family. good experience for kids.

You many see exotic animals and buy some special food to feed them. The aviary is very big and full of different birds. You can feed them also.

While the zoo is adequate, making elephants swim and do tricks is not a way to educate people of elephant behavior. This needs to be stopped! I wish I had never gone to see the zoo.

Elephants made to perform shows underwater for entertainment of others, small enclosures, animals do not generally look happy. Would never go here again and we left after about 45 minutes as we were so appalled
