The zoo on it self is nice, but all people driver their with car or scooter. So it's like a street where people stop to watch a animal and drive to the next one. It's not like in Europe where you walke around and enjoy the area. Also a lot of old attractions where they don't take care anymore. If... More

This Zoo is incredible , I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and so did my girlfriend, Grandfather and Young nephews. Goes to show its definitely for everyone! The animals have all got spacious enclosures and some even roamed freely. The price to get in was cheap and it's even free for under 5's. It's a great experience and I highly... More

A nice zoo with fair price. Easy to find. Quite big collection of animals as well. I got some great photos of the Hyenas in there.

Its a nice looking zoo but if you love animals you may be disappointed.Signaling is little confusing. I would say that the animals could have a better presentation The bird section is very poor : don't expect to see beautiful tropical birds. Its just bird aviary. Some emerald doves,ducks, black swan and cacatoes. For the "big cats " I have... More

Highly recommend visiting if you want an animal experience in Thailand. The animals seemed well looked after and there's plenty of food that can be purchased to feed multiple animals. Recommend bringing extra money to purchase food for the animals to feed them. There was also a baby binturong and orang-utan you could hold.

It took almost 3-4 hours by the train which runs inside to see the zoo. Various shows are also organised.the best part is animals are in their natural habitat . One can see them roaming... More

The zoo is abit old. But over all is good. The main reason we are here is because they allow feeding the animals and the kids love it. Animal feed selling through out the zoo. Cold drink and snack stand through out the zoo. Only around 10-20 percent more expensive than 7-11. It would be easier to drive your own... More

We had been looking forward to seeing how this zoo has developed, having seen it at its earliest stages a few decades ago. It is now certainly Thailand's best zoo, with an outstanding collection of native and exotic species. The White Rhinos from Africa were especially interesting and it was possible to toouch them (interesting to see that one of... More

Khao Kheow was a brilliant place to spend a few hours out in the jungle away from the hectic streets of Pattaya & to see some stunning wild cats. In fact it's amazing how only 45 minutes away from Walking Street you can ogle birds of a different kind. I'm an animal lover & not generally a fan on zoos... More
