Review of Catfish Farm

Reviewed 29 March 2017 via mobile

If you've run out of things to do in Ao Nang/ Krabi and are bored, you could do this. However, for all others I would avoid it. It's run by an American woman and her two daughters and they charge 50B for entrance and fish food. When you first walk up there is a monkey there on a chain, with a sign that says she's on a chain because the neighbours want to "shoot her" which I doubt. You NEED to being mosquito repellent because we didn't and my family and I got eaten alive by them. Some of the other animals include some big fish in the ponds, which you can feed, some big roosters, ducks and a goat who will follow you around and escapes out of its pen quite frequently. They also have a "crocodile" and "alligator" which I'm pretty sure are just fake models because I've seen other photos on this page and the animals don't ever seen to move. There's also an aquarium area that's full of dirty water and dirty tanks for the fish. The whole place just seem really run down. Don't recommend it.

Came across this place randomly and we're delighted, we both had so much fun exploring the farm as we didn't expect to see half the animals that we did! Nina the owner was very welcoming and told us a bit about the place, should definitely go and see the arapaima as its such a cool experience!

The Catfish Farm is a unique place, and very interesting for children and adults alike. It is fun to watch the catfish crowd around the food that you get to feed them. The place is very well maintained and has small trails which give you a forest like experience. There are pet rabbits and goats, chicken and ducks. It was nice to see our children take interest in something without screens and touch-pads for a change.

The charges are very reasonable and the owners and their family take personal interest in making your experience pleasant.

The owners have been very creative to turn their backyard into a tourist attraction. Given its name "Catfish Farm", it's not unreasonable to expect to see a farm of giant catfish, but instead you can see some catfish in a dirty pond, some chickens, a billy goat and some crocodiles. We were mauled by mosquitoes, so we couldn't get away fast enough. You'll be better spending your time cutting your toenails.

This little place is something different. It is all donated animals that would probably be killed otherwise. They have a little monkey, a crocodile, pot belly pig, goats, ducks, geese, rabbits. Lots of types of fish including, catfish, pacu, talapia, arapaima and lots more. There's also a river rapids for a nice cool down. Definitely worth a look
