Phuket Zoo, Phuket

#3 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Phuket
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Visit Phuket Zoo to see a wide variety of animals. Take photos with some of the park's most famous residents, and stroll around the ample gardens. With themed areas and an interesting layout, this zoo has become popular with international visitors, particularly younger ones. Small stands around the grounds sell cold beer or ice cream. Note that multiple visitors have reported poor conditions for the animals, which may be reason to skip this attraction. Put Phuket Zoo and other Phuket Town attractions into our Phuket Town family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It took us long time to get this zoo from Patong beach, about 1 hour to reach there, and we found an old zoo that needs lots of renovation works, and animals need more care. They have 3 main shows, it...  more »
  • Visited here for a few hours and unfortunately found the zoo to be old and tired, only 500 baht to get in and you'll get to see an Elephant, Monkey and Crocodile show, done AM and PM. The rest of the ...  more »
  • It has become really run down and the enclosures are in bad shape. There's also a lot of empty enclosures now so not a lot to see here. The animals don't look happy. I should have spent my money elsew...  more »

  • Terrible place, DO NOT VISIT! Animals in DIRTY tiny cages with no food or enrichment or clean water even. Many were sick and injured. The staff didn't care and we saw them hitting the monkey after the horrific monkey show. The elephants are distressed, chained Why this place is still open is beyond me. Sickening. Sad. CLOSE IT!!!!!!!
  • Behind each zoo/circus/"Wild Life park", each elephant show or riding, each birds/cetacean performance, each tiger/monkey/koala cuddling, there is slavery, physical abuse, torture, imprisonment in order to break their spirit and accept humans commands. The majority of the travelers don't know about it because tourist companies hide the truth or they simply refuse to face their cupidity. Please don't go there. Visit Phuket Elephant sanctuary instead.
  • Absolutely nothing to see. Dont bother. Go to tiger kingdom instead.
  • We were there today and regret it. I was beginning to realize how terrible this is. Just money-laundering!! I'm torn. Read me and found out why the elephants danced, that is a sign of depression and stress.The elephants were drawn and led. Some animals were in terrible condition. Please do not support. The birds at the beginning had at least still space, we also took pictures, because we did not realize what was coming! 😞😞😞 Crocodiles without end the like under drugs to open the mouth and so persist.But I believe that the carers like their animals ... or that is all show ...!!!!
  • Shut it down. Do not give this pathetic business your money.
