Where to stay in Si Racha

Though the town and subdistrict of Si Racha aren't replete with options, along the piers cluster a number of authentic but basic carved wooden hotels at affordable rates. For something slightly more midrange, check out the few hotels and bed and breakfasts with amenities such as swimming pools and onsite restaurants. Some even offer the added bonus of shuttle buses that will transport you between selected stops within the town.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • My family's favorite zoo. Can feed a lot of different animals. But the zoo is spread, so if you want to see everything you will either need to have your own transportation or rent something on site. The tram ride included in the admission price will give a good overview of the zoo, but is not the way to experience it. You will need to walk a fair amount and hop in and out of whatever type of transportation you have. They also have a campground (may have to use their equipment), a night safarii, and Flight of the Gibbon - Pattaya. Perhaps, the worst section of the zoo is the children's section. The enclosures are small. And it can get crowded.
  • 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.
  • If you aren't Asian, they will charge you an extra rate. But beware, the people who run the golf carts are a third party company and will try and scam you. We brought the golf cart back 3 minutes late (seriously), they wanted to charge us 300 baht for another hour for being 3 minutes late. Then we said ok just to test the girl, and we told her to give us a receipt and then they were like oh, never mind, you are ok. If you check the rules, you are allowed 15 minutes to be late. They were just trying to scam us 300 baht, which the lady running the register would pocket herself.
