Samutprakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo, Bangkok

(2/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Witness the largest crocodile in captivity at Samutprakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo, home to over 100,000 crocodiles. The facility puts on shows where performers place their heads inside crocodiles' mouths and do other terrifying acts. In addition to the crocs, you will also see elephants, lions, tigers, monkeys, and hippos in this park. Visitors have reported poor treatment of animals, however, so consider visiting more reputable and humane institutions instead. Tourists pay over double the price for Thai visitors at this attraction. Samutprakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Bangkok Edition.

  • Alligator and elephant show, Zoo, shooting whatever there is. Decrepit facilities there such as hearsay in the elephant, or give food to almost all the animals here feel melancholy, but is a fun-filled. The flurry of chips in the midst of the vanishing. You can experience the sight in Japan, such as in the elephant show elephants come straight nose to stand close to the chip collection. It is possible, of course, to the chip. Go is a little inconvenient is cheaper compared to other tours. 140 B around by taxi from BTS Bering. Admission 300B.

  • We went on this farm of crocodiles on the recommendation of a taxi driver, who said that it would be no crocodiles and we could take a picture with him. Entering it found out it was a zoo. Soon faced with an incredibly skinny Tiger, two monkeys caught in a cage too small and a monkey in chains. Walking a little more, we saw llamas completely careless and even parrots chained (arara without being able to fly, that's for sure?). We then see the famous show of the crocodiles. This already starts with one of the guys kicking a crocodile. Then, between pulled by the tail of the crocodile, clubbed and an unnecessary violence, the two guys lay hands and head inside the mouth of the crocodiles. Meanwhile, viewers are throwing money to the two men who are abusing the animals right there in front of us (the majority like the show is Thai). The ending is even more disappointing: the guys take two Gators to take a photo with them in his lap and then just the play on the floor without mercy. Leave this place with a terrible power and heartbroken. Any person who has love in you, don't go there. Do not give money to this place and not compactue with this.

  • This is a really interesting place. They do a crocodile show where they put their hands and heads inside the crocodile's mouth. First, they hit the mouth of the crocodile with a stick, and it's really loud. Then when the crocodile stops closing it's mouth after being hit with a stick, they put their hand and head in the crocodile. I'm glad I saw it once, but I cringed the whole time, and probably won't ever see it again. I will go back for the other exhibits, though. They have lots of elephants, turtles, and other animals. And they have tons of crocodiles from babies to super old crocodiles. I got slimed by an elephant who was taking my 20 baht. I should have learned from the kids who handed the elephant the money, dropped it and screamed as the elephant picked up their money.
  • It's a nice place nearby Bangkok. 300 THB entry for adult. Thousands of crocodiles and a wonderful exciting show. Good to go with family on half day trip.
  • This is the worst experience we have witnessed for cruelty to animals. Crockodiles are kept in tiny cages that clearly have not been cleaned in months. Turtles that are in distress as are the rest of the animals. There is no water for the monkeys turtles deer etc. In the hot sun. Someone has cracked the shell of one turtle. The place is so run down and in disrepair we are shocked that it is still in operation. By Western standards this would not be allowed. The main attraction in the arena of yet more abused and mistreated animals is nothing more than a "tip" grab. A pathetic example of abusing animals for profit is what this place is all about. How the ratings are so high can only be attributed by those that manage this "hell for animals" to boost the ratings. Stay away!!
  • A shame don't go there !! Animals are not respected at all ! It's extremely sad. If you love animals. Find a place where they look after them. Not an horrible zoo !!!
  • A good place for a holiday 1 trip.Many Crocs and very big crockodiles are there.Also funny and adventurous show of man and crockodiles.
