As an attraction this zoo is really quite good. The animals don't look too stressed and the enclosures are clean. It's a nice place to go and spend the day walking around looking at the animals. You can also feed certain animals (not the lions and tigers obviously) and the Big Cat Enclosure is not to be missed!!

Me and my family (with 2 young children) visited this zoo in the beginning of September. We visited on a week day (Friday) a big advantage with this was the zoo was not really that busy and this allowed us to get round the zoo quite easily. This may be different if you visited on a weekend. This zoo is... More

This is a great place to visit, do it early in the day when the animals are hungry as you buy the food (Cheap) to feed them. You MUST hire a golf cart and allow yourself at least 2 - 3 hours to get around the zoo. Spend time in the bird enclosure and check out the other bird enclosures... More

Ticket price: 300THB/adult (August 2016) It worth! Don't forget to watch the show ;) And also enjoy the fresh coconut in the f&b stand. If you think you don't want to walk around, just take the public transport in the zoo, it stop near the information service area.. You can ask to stop and take a picture with the animals... More

They did a great job in taking care of and housing the animals. However, the parking and other facilities are not as well thought out. The parking and traffic is a nightmare. The tram system is a joke. Because of the traffic jams we did not get to see the entire park.

The zoo is very well maintained and clean and some parts of the zoo has undergone some major renovations. We rented a buggy as it was more flexible as compared to driving in our car. You can find parking easily for the buggy and go to view the animals without much walking. You will have many up close opportunities with... More

This is one of the best to zoo to visit in Thailand. There are so many tigers in the zoo for some of the Tigers we can feed and we can take photos. Photo with Tiger Cub cost 200 Thai currency. Photo with big tiger cost hundred to 300 Thai currency. Must visit place for family

Some areas where out of use or I would have given it EXCELLENT. It is a great place for the young children. My 4 year old loved it and that made it great for me too. It's in a jungle mountain setting and they rent golf carts for travel. However I walked and carried my daughter. Not recommended unless you... More

We decided to visit this "ZOO" beacause of positives reviews on Trip Advisor. It was the worst trip we made while being in Thailand. There is a lot of space and really long walking distance between animals which are ironically packed into small cages (especialy tigers ) which is the dumbest thing, cause they have all this space they didnt...
