  • Deer, giraffes, rhinos, ostriches, elephants, hippos, tapirs gave food. Children and adults alike were elated. Food buy at the market stalls at the entrance. Rented a cart because the Park is very large. May rust depending on the location. Was a koala bear is surprised.

  • So go by cart to the location of each animal. The cart easy to hop on and off more than helpful! Don't forget your Passport! Need to rent a carts! The English is absolutely incomprehensible, there is no Park map. Not knowing where to rent a carts in the beginning, had a hard time. Touch elephant at just 20, teamed with orangutans and shoulder, you can take a photo. Another white tiger and lion to fence in the flesh was given.

  • We come to this zoo and feel that it's not quite the same with the rest of the zoo, where you feed the animals in full bloom, don't feel like they're trapped, as if they were free to live in a natural environment, not knowing whether or not a visitor feeds, each animal looks fat, and feels comfortable, and therefore, it is, It would be nice to appreciate the scenery of this animal park without worrying about the life of these animals, which is not wrong, recommended to go! One thing to be aware of is that this is the best way to get up in the morning, because you can drive directly into the park, and after 9, there's a lot of cars inside, luckily, we came at 8, just a little bit better, but when we left, I saw the car dragon over 3KM (I don't know if it was a very, very special day on New Year's Eve) It's terrible!

  • Great place to visit. You need transport to get around unless you're super fit as it's so big. All the exotic animals which nowadays might seem inappropriate and as everywhere in Thailand they're very tame. There are educational opportunities but not geared towards the foreign visitor. Big cat enclosures are sumptuous, but it was sad to see a chained and distressed elephant. Well worth a visit but avoid local holidays and weekends if possible.
  • Lovely zoo. Not very far from Bangkok. Best to lend the electric car to get around the zoo.
  • The best zoo I have visited? Lots of tigers. Lots of animals under open sky. Better visit this place through Monday to Friday, because there are so many visitors on weekends, no room for car
  • Excellent zipline activities with high standards of safety. Quick tour of the open zoo. Lunch can be better.
  • 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!

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.
