  • There are a lot of animals and tourism activities. There are at the very affordable price and go inside, or you can use the services of the internal rail car.

  • We were brought on a tour of the zoo after a recent Flight of the Gibbon outing. This is an open zoo, meaning that many of the animal enclosures were quite open and not cages. There were several places where we can get really close to the animals, e.g. elephants, giraffe. While the concept is nice, the value delivery was just average. The feeling was that we were just moving around looking at animals. This would be fine but why would I want to come all the way out from Bangkok just to look at these animals? It would have been better if they were to add value to our visit, like information, activities, etc. Overall, I would visit this zoo unless I happen to be at Flight of the Gibbon. Actually, even if I am at Flight of the Gibbon, I would probably just skip the zoo.
  • Amazing experience with the animals in a beautiful conservation area. Make sure yo rent the golf cart, it's worth it. You can definitely spend a whole day here, I wish we could have stayed longer!!
  • Tourist are charged 300 baht for entry, but the local Thai price is only 100 baht. Are you a foreigner living or working in Thailand? 150 baht. If you enjoy paying more money because your skin is white, check out this zoo! Anyone who enjoys experiencing racism should have a fantastic time here. Otherwise, stay away. Don't encourage the idiotic dual(or triple) pricing system.
  • An incredible place, a must to visit. Taking a golf car is strongly recommended (there are trams on schedule, but it's much more fun to stop wherever you want to)
  • Amazing zoo! One of the best I've been to. Adult tickets are 300 baht. You will need transportation inside the zoo, so bring your own car or plan to rent a golf cart. To rent a golf cart they require you to leave your passport, so make sure to bring it. 4 passenger golf cart was 350 baht plus 50 insurance for 1 hour and 200 for each additional hour. We stopped at most animals, but not all and it took about 3 hours. Photographer takes your picture in the golf cart at the beginning and when you return they have it printed and ask if you would like to purchase for 100 baht. Also, they have tons of bathrooms which is awesome, BUT most are the ones you squat over and they do not provide toilet paper, so be sure to bring your own TP for the day. Also, I would arrange transportation back to where ever you are going in advance as the cab drivers try to rip you off there. As for the animals and experience it was a great value and loved it.
