Not bad for a open zoo..... Section where the penguins are under construction. A good place to visit with little kiddos. Highly recommend to rent your own golf cart and drive through the zoo leisurely. 😊😊

I spent 2 hours there today. I forgot to take my licence as I wanted to rent a golf cart to save walking. However you need a Thai licence or your Passport which they photocopy. The charges were 350 Bht for the first hour then 300 Bht per hour after that. I was offered a Zoo employee to drive me... More

We were a multinational group that enjoyed our time in the zoo while feeding some animals. Feeds (mostly grasses and other green veggies THB20-40) are sold on site, which is also additional funds for maintenance of the animals. The area is large, so if you are not up to walking up and down, you can rent their golf cart to... More

Beware of the extremely bad service!!! They would lie to you and said your group left so they could send you back with a taxi!!! Zip line sucks! Food served was just plain fried rice and a bowl of soup which has nothing but water and Salt. Also they will ask for a tip after zip line

We liked the fact that the animals are kept in open and not just an enclosure. We were fortunate that we reached their early as we went for Zip Line (The Flight if Gibbon) and there was no rush. Our driver cum guide Mr. Chan showed us around in Golf cart and was very helpful.

This is a huge mountainous zoo which does have some open enclosures. Some animals have an awesome deal and others live a crappy life. Deer have a good deal as do some of the gibbons on their islands. The most disappointing area for me and hard to cope with is the large cat area. The zoo has so much land... More

We went to this open zoo near Pattaya City with my friends. If you are a nature-lover you will have a hell of a time there. There is a golf-cart service in the park. You can watch tropical animals from very close distance.
