2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Another Birthday outing ..now 6 Years old .. and again at the Gate, .. foreigners are herded to a separate pay / ticket booth, .. and only charged just three times that of the locals, ,for entry ! A disappointing start to a fairly shabby experience. Under maintained, often grubby with many allotments closed .. not a thrilling experience for most of our party ..aggravated by the outstanding greed and unfriendly service tendered..

“Great adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Love this place. If the US has something like this, I am sure to take the kids there more often. Not many places where you can feed the giraffe, elephants, hippo and a host of other animals. Kids had a great time even the young one. Also, the place is very humane. I do not enjoy seeing animals in chain or doing acts. There is none of that here. Only a sanctuary setting here.

The only disappointment for us was that all of the banana were sold out so had to get grass for the elephants which they didn't seem to like as much so they weren't coming to us as often.

Khao Kheow open zoo is the best zoo in Thailand. You can either visit the zoo during the day or at night is pretty awesome as well. The night animals show is the great experience. Must visit place for animal lovers!

“Great day out. Animals treated good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago

It was good to see the animals running around in large open areas. You can feed the animals and you can pay 20baht to feed the lion or have your photo with the orangutans. We spent 3 hours here and will visit next time we are in pattaya agains.
