Phuket Zoo, Phuket

1.4
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 on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Phuket Town day trip planning tool .

  • Absolutely deplorable conditions for the animals whoever runs the zoo should be put in jail. Trash everywhere including in the animal cages. Awful smells. I feel sick that I spent money there. Please do not go to this terrible place.
  • It was very old and not very well looked after. Otherwise we had a lovely time we paid extra to feed the crocodiles which was great. The shows were good. Worth a visit though
  • Nice place to visit with family. Ticket for person is 1000 bahh whre shows are included such as monkey show, crocodile show, elephant show. A lot of kind birds and elephant. A lot of huge crocodiles. I most liked show with crocodile.
  • best for getting your pictures clicked with animals - Tiger crocodile orangutan python. Must see crocodile show. Good for kids too, especially elephant show.
  • If I could, I'd leave no stars. The treatment of these animals are disgusting. Save yourself a buck and go to a sanctuary instead. You'll be able to physically engage with animals that are treated with kindness and love.
