  • Not a great attraction at all. It needs to be spruced up for the animals enclosures and the customers. The aquarium was dark and dismal. We walked through in under an hour. We missed the daily show so...  more »

  • Aquarium is disappointing, quite dark in rooms, mostly lack of fish names. Ticket prise is too high compare to what you get (750baths) Tigers are awesome! Even if they were laying and was totally lazy :) could not feed a small tiger, however there is is such option (additional 600 baths).
  • Whilst we had a reasonable time at the tiger park and aquarium I wouldn't rate it as a must see for the family. Given its on Samui the shows were quite good and the animals looked well cared for. The music played during the shows was horrendously loud and plucked from the 80's, to the point that you couldn't comfortably watch the show due to volume. Our entire family consisting of children and adults in 30's 40's 60's and 70's age groups all said the same. The #1 & #2 aquariums were small and underwhelming given the tropical nature of the waters around Samui. Lunch at the beach cafe was well priced and had a lovely view, staff at the café also organised a golf cart to get from the café up to one of the shows for a walking stick elderly member of our party which was greatly appreciated.
  • Admission was about 750 for adults, they have a couple of shoes too which are fun to see. Zoo is small but they have a small aquarium with some sharks and a massive turtle and sting rays. There are tigers, leopards, monkeys, and birds.
  • Horrible place. It was an awful experience. The tigers are obviously drugged in order to be calm for the photos. Cages are more than small and dirty. It is the same for all the animals : aquariums are crowded with enormous fishes, there is no place for them to swim; otters are in a tiny cage : the floor is in concrete (no nature at all) and there is almost no water etc. All the animals seems sick and unhappy. They do not move at all. Please don't go to this place, it should be shut down. Don't bring your kids to see this, they should not think that it is ok to treat animals like that.
  • Small cages for animals. They are thin and feel bad, they don't feel freedom. So it's a jail for animals. In my viewpoint it would be better to construct big zoo without cages by using natural made barriers. Tigers can suffer from rickets. Birds are beautiful. I visited better zoo in Tunisia. It is very small zoo. Lioness is unbelievable big and doesn't feel freedom as well. It has nice sea lion and people say that appearance with sea lion is nice. It has pretty big and nice oceanariums but aquariums are small. I guess fishes don't feel good in it. The price for ticket is reasonable (750 b). It is allowed to pay by card but with charge of 3%.
