    A wonderful Zoo! Electric cars can be rented, and go round all by himself, to stop, to be photographed. There are several show animals, elephants bathing in the clear pool. The huge park, a day is not enough. We went with a guide at a public bus, really liked it. Tour guide was entertainer, Thai, humorous, delighted the US showed what we saw. He persuaded flamingos dance for us, and the penguins to conduct and synchronously to twist heads)). It was fun, informative and entertaining! Even if you have no children, be sure to visit!

    Went on this excursion from aneksa, very unusually, the children really enjoy! At the entrance to buy pet food, I bought a package: fruit, beans, carrot, is inexpensive, at all enough animals to feed. I love animals, really excited was that visited this place! There are unusual animals such as binturong and tapir! impressed! Rada was, meeting with the kangaroos! Animals can be even fotografirovatsja! All in all an enjoyable one! All I animals who there is scrolling will not themselves arrive and everything yourself! It was a show with animals included in the program lasted somewhere in 30 min. Impressed! Why am I such a headline wrote about this trip, explain: I believe that everything here look carefully, it is necessary to select one day though! Because it was my last day of vacation in pattaie, and besides I was in Thailand for the first time, I didn't know all these details. After visiting this place, was lunch, it's good and as usual not without this imported in the shop! These stores are generally at the end of the rest simply fed up! I certainly understand that business is business, but the price, space, but despite that I benefited from it! even warned me explain: at home, there's nothing to buy! I was just looking the goods description in Russian, then go into a simple shop and there I buy them cheaper than in the stores, w/Pasta cost 200 baht and 45 baht in the Pharmacy! Coconut oil too cheaply in the Pharmacy! Well this is certainly a personal matter of each person buying or not! Of course ➕ pros bring tours-was taken away, fed, but shop, waste of time, if not the last day, I would be up to the closing was there. But no matter what, I was satisfied with from this trip! If you'll be in pattaie ever, already own go here without excursions and shops! ☺ on each excursion shop everywhere, get ready for this! Just a shame with the Thais you bargain you more discounts do, then their my people get such prices!

    Amazing place,huge space! Better to rent a golf kart (3 hours only 700 bath!) Food and drinks inside for a very affordable prices. Amazing zoo with a thousands animals in very good conditions, very less cages! We spend 4 hours(because at 6 was closing time😂) but maybe with 2 kids we even need more!

    Amazing place. We hired a golf cart to get around (highly recommend as the place is huge). The first animals we encountered were deer, just roaming around an open area so you can feed and pat them. The experience only got better from there. A huge array of animals, in large clean enclosures, many of which you can hand feed including elephants, hippos, giraffes, even the rhinos. The food only costs 20 baht! We will definatley be back the next time we visit Bangkok.

    Nice place! Renting a golf car is a must if you want to see all. Beware of monkeys, do not leave some food ir bag unattended. Dont get closer to the ones with babies.

    Good place for kids to get up close with animals. Good facility. Recommend to be there early, it could be very crowded in the afternoon.

    Excellent place for watching animals. Huge area with lots of shows. Penguin show, Elephant swimming, big cats-lions show, tigers, hippos and lots more. It`s my family's favourite zoo and my son loves feeding the deers and hippos. Weekends are usually packed.
