  • wet weather we decided to make this park, the opinion is shared, I the pricey entrance, however animal species mainly of fish varied enough contrary to what I read, Park was very clean, and I have not found that the animals were to the point of death! It is on should not expect the enclosure or the decorations that we have in our countries such france, don't forget that we are in Thailand! There are 2 shows in early afternoon that are fun to do with kids.

  • We were there in the afternoon and because at that time were already over, it has offered us to look at the small Zoo and Aquarium admission price for children. We did also. It is relatively fast, but it was still pretty nice. Ticket prices in Thailand are generally very high in such facilities, no matter in what part of the country. So, I can not confirm the critiques of animal husbandry. Of course, it is not a German Zoo, where everything just under renovation is on enclosure without fence, plenty of room etc. But firstly you should not forget that there were just small enclosure not too long ago in German zoos, and secondly the money in Thailand first earned must be essential as well as the proper handling of nature also first must be learned, what better education and enlightenment. Since most Asian countries are still a bit far away. In Germany, this development lasted several decades. I found it positive that the parrots in pairs were held and made a vivid impression, the big cats lay peacefully snoozing in a shady spot, because it is too warm and those at 33 degrees. The aquariums were a colorful cross-section of Samui's underwater world. The entire system was maintained with their outdoor aviaries on the way to the restaurant. And the views from the restaurant on the beach was post cards Idyll. There was also access to the beautiful beach of the restaurant, where one could go swimming right. I've seen far worse facilities, z.B the Botanical Garden in Phuket.

  • This place is a showcase of animal abuse at it's worst! Drugged tigers, dirty small cages with clearly suffering animals - I do not understand how this can be called a zoo. Do yourself a favour and do...  more »

  • While it was great to see tigers and lions up close (and the photos with the tigers are great), that represents a small portion of the overall facility. The aquarium is large, with loads of fish, but it seems poorly kept with sparsely decorated tanks - my daughters said the fish looked sad.
  • 750 baht with out photo with the tiger!! For this price i can take a photo in phuket or chiang mai taiger kingdom 👎
  • Loved all the shows but most of all the tiger's. You can have a photo with one of them which I did👍
  • Maybe the last big fish in Thailand as they took all of them from the ocean and replace them each 2 weeks as they are dying in the horrible small aquarium not well maintained in this zoo. Everything is dark without nature at all and all animals look unhappy and really sad... Please take only small animals so they have much bigger places and you will not breed them with a huge amount of food daily... And small animals are cute and put much more plants, trees and grass for them... The huge animals you have look horribly sad.
  • I am ashamed of my self for visiting a place like this and supporting it by giving them my ticket money! It is pure cruelty to the animals that live there in terrible conditions. Small cages, aquarium with no plants or rocks at all. Really a terrible place. Animal caretakers made it obvious that it is all about making money mistreating the animals . I could not stand the place that I left before seeing the tiger show. They should close this place down and relocate the animals in thailands beautiful national parks .
