Went here after Damnoen Saduak for lunch, then elephant and crocodile show. Lunch is a combination of Thai and Chinese dishes. Elephants showed tricks they were obviously trained to do, which is not their natural instinct. Same for crocodiles. These animals are here to entertain, much like a circus. If you fancy seeing them in their artificial behavior....

You will witness live show with crocodiles and entertainers putting their heads inside the crocodile mouth; elephant show with magic show for kids; Buffet Food in the restaurant inside the area is very good.

I had read past bad reviews but then saw replies from the management that they were improving conditions and making this a more animal/eco friendly place, so we gave it a shot. We really wanted to see elephants and this place was much closer than others. It was not worth it. I feel guilty for having gone. It's more humane... More

This attraction is geared towards kids and has a decent restaurant, photo opportunities with a tired Bengal Tiger, and a show with alligators. The main attraction is a Elephant show where you can feed them for 20 baht at the end and a ride. During my recent visit the magic show was the best part. It is something for your... More

Watch the show of the elephants it is awesome and feed them bananas. Do not forget to take pictures and do not be afraid, not dangerous at all. The tiger is a waste of time it is sedated... Remember to take a pic with the fake cocodrile. Suitable for all ages.

As per previous descriptions this is located about 1.5 hours drive away from Bangkok. On entering the zoo you are immediately faced with a tiger chained up in a small compound for a photo opportunity. The tiger looked to quite thin and didn't even have a bowl of water nearby. Following this the main attractions are elephants and crocodiles. The... More
