Something different

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... More

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... More

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

A great break from the beaches, especially if you have children. The place itself may be a little run down, but your surrounded by greenery and animals and its a fantastic feeling. If feeding fish, petting rabbits, feeding little goats and ducks is something you would like doing, this is a great way to spend a couple of hours.

We came here after a tour and visited this poor animals. They look so bad, get treated in a shame way and can't live their live. It is so bad to see this and we would never come back. Hint: Mind this place and go on a better place

Nothing much. Don't waste your time coming here. But the lady owner was a nice lady. We finished going 1 round within 10mins

Animals in poor condition, small enclosures. I regret ever going there. The area cold be so beautiful but the owners seem to think tourists love visiting the dump.

We were taken here after elephant trekking and it was an awful experience. From the outside the grounds are very run down with lots of junk outside. On entering the farm there was a monkey chained up, it was clearly very distressed, a young girl was trying to untangle the chain but this seemed to be distressing the monkey more.... More

Such a fantastic experience, the animals have a brilliant life and are treated well, unlike some other parts of Thailand. There's so much more than just catfish to see - there are crocodiles, baby goats, ducks, a monkey (who I was able to go swimming with!), a huge Amazonian arapaima which was bigger than me, and elephants in the neighbouring...
