Samutprakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo, Bangkok

2.0
#14 of 30 in Parks in Bangkok
Farm Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • The animals suffered terribly, they were in too small cages ... the elephants were chained in max a half meters chains ... the Park was grim and dilapidated ... all the animals seemed sultene and malnourished ... My children were in shock STAY AWAY!!!

  • Shackled, sad and amorphous animals. Most of the time in small places or cages. Old and dirty facilities. Animaux enchaînés, trites et amorphes. La plupart du temps dans de petites cages. Vieux et sal...  more »

  • While it's true that there are plenty of different animals to see here, with interesting animal shows to watch, the conditions that these animals are kept at are pretty terrible. Baby chimps in 1m^3 cages, same size for 2 baby tigers. You cab see dehydrated and hungry orangutans and adult tigers who can do nothing but sleep in their cages due to the heat and due to the fact that the cage has nothing but plastic rocks. The crocodiles at the beginning of the zoo are kept in dirty water (some even have plastic bottles and straws seimming in it) and each of the crocodiles' pools is too small for the animal's body to begin with, let alone give it enough space to even be able to turn around properly. It was nice to see the animals on their own, but seeing their conditions was a truly saddening sight.
  • They have all kinds of crocodiles to show, but the presentation of the farm could be better. At the entrance instead of showing you their big and impressive pond with giant crocodiles, they show you all the disabled crocodiles which is very weird. They also have other things other than crocodiles such as birds, goat, caged monkey. They have crocodile show that totally tailored for Chinese tourists. It's a bit lame to see all the Chinese tourists throwing money on the floor for the performers to pick up like poor hobos.
  • Nice experience. Lots of crocs and other animals. The kids enjoyed petting baby animals and the elephant ride.
  • The conditions most of the animals are in was rather disappointing, but it was surprising how many types of animals there were. The staff did not seem very passionate about their jobs and sadly I suspect that transfers over to treatment of animals. Mostly Chinese tourists there, in fact half of the crocodile show was in Chinese. Mixed feelings in that it was relatively impressive complex compared to others similar farms I've seen or heard of, and yet still walked away feeling like I had supported some sort of animal cruelty. If you don't care so much about that kind thing then it's a pretty great spot for kids (and adults) to see a lot of different species in a short amount of time, just not in a very happy setting.
  • Many different animals to see. Not only crocodiles. You can feed crocodiles for only 20 baht. Wow.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
