We didn't even realise we were booked for a snake show as part of a whole day package tour until we found ourselves here. Definitely an interesting experience though none of us would have sought this place out if we had a choice. Seemed quite...More

Went to this place today and regret it. 150 baht per person to see two black bears, four monkeys, two crocodiles and some chickens caged in the most awful conditions you could imagine. The snake show lasted 10 minutes with a cobra, a viper and...More
