  • Catfish farm lies approximately 20 km from Krabi town. An old farm and a little abandoned, but no less interesting! At the entrance we were met by the hostess, Madame Ning, which is more than 20 years ago, married Thais and stayed to live in Krabi. She leads the statistics of visits to the farm for 2016-2017 timeframe. In leading positions: Russia-565 people, 214-Germany, 209-Malaysia. Madame Nina presented us with their paintings and gave food for fish. which is included in the cost of attendance. Treading a narrow path among dense bushes, we ended up one on one with nature ... We first encountered the turtles, leisurely munching grass. Passing on, we discovered several dams with sheatfish and other fish. Fascinated by feeding, we don't notice how behind us up black indoutka. Pokormim and her, the more she looks well brought-up "Lady". With my Palm she gently klevala feed, trying to accidentally pinch ... We went on, through the thickets of bamboo and banana trees, Monster, look for crocodiles. Three brave-I, my husband and black indoutka! After wandering around a bit, we found a high concrete paddock. Here's and crocodiles! They sleep peacefully. Further our way lies on the fragile wooden bridge across the pond. Here we were joined by another, this time a white indoutka, begging for food. Crossing the pond four already, we came across a shack with vintage and strange things ... Covered with cobwebs Singer sewing machine, some animal bones and skulls, a huge stove and. .. Magnificent surroundings for the filming of a horror movie! Also at the farm, we encountered the goat. huge black boar and several aquariums with fish. Farm visiting hours from 8.00 to 18.00. The cost of just 50 baht!

  • Perfect, amazing people, amazing farm, We really enjoyed accompanying with the owners. Thanks for your hospitality and patience :-) and of course explaining everything in detail to us. A very big thumps up.
  • Rain wrecked havoc the moment we left King Cobra Show, and rain trailed us all the way to Krabi Giant Catfish farm (Ocean Palace Libra Cruise & Boarding Libra Cruise). Once we got down from the bus, we ran for shelter into this catfish farm. Thankfully, thanks to the rain coat from the tour guide, thereafter we walked into this jungle akin farm. Quite a mess, puddles of water, slippery and I struggled with taking pictures. Still, a couple of pictures were possible, though I was really concern about water getting into my camera. Thereafter, once we stood in front of the big pond, came the American lady who threw pieces of fresh meat into the water to draw the giant catfish. We waited patiently and watched the smaller catfish nibbling on the meat, but the giant catfish just wouldn't appear. By now, despite shielded by raincoat, we were literally getting wet and since we couldn't wait any longer, we had to bid bye-bye prior to journeying for lunch
  • Nice american owner, ready to spend time to explain about the farm.
  • Nice place. U feel like in the middle of the jungle. Nice animals to see.
  • If you are in Krabi for several days you should visit. It's very nice!
