Samutprakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo, Bangkok

(340 reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Unimaginable conditions for the animals not okay if I could give a zero star I would. The water was disgusting and not enoght water for the disabled alligators. Even an alligator needs to be treated better than that. Elephants and chimpanzees were chainned to extremely short distances weren't any better conditions. DO NOT GO HERE I WISH I DIDN'T!
  • Tons of crocodiles piled on each other and they jump at you if u come to close. Vえry much fun 😁
