  • We were taken by our tuk tuk driver as a stop off so had no idea what to expect, huge turtles in tiny little tanks made me want to cry I wouldn't recommend at all 
  • It was interesting to listen to and to look at turtles starting from daytime and two finishing quite older. Guide began his story in English, but we asked and approached a man who speaks in Russian!) I recommend to go independently, because the story will personally for you with the opportunity to make photo (slow). Seen as it was happening in groups, Stampede, etc. ... recommend to visit

  • Small Familiebetriebene turtle farm. The owner personally informed the guests about his farm and the turtles. Is highly recommended, because everything seems very authentic and real. 500 RP entry
