I know that Asian zoos are far from top quality and that we shouldn't even have zoos in the first place, but we decided to stop and have a look after going to Doi Suthep. It was a huge mistake on our part and felt...More

Place is seriously run down. Many exhibits closed or just plain empty. Felt like I was in a Jurassic Park after all the dinosaurs escaped. Aviary was HUGE...with almost no birds in it. Like a ghost town. Worth the trip to see a third world...More

Yes you can easily buy tickets at the zoo. There are plenty of staff near the entrance though in short supply elsewhere.
