My wife and I drove around in our golf cart for 2 hours. It was the best idea, ever. The grounds are super hilly. You can feed damn near everything and safety starts with you. We fed (and were encouraged to) the hippos, leopards, deer and goats. At one point, there was just a food stand in front of the... More

An old zoo with a huge amount of space that wasn't utilised. Animals didn't seem well cared for or in especially good health. A few sad ones...could be hugely improved. Despite this, the children enjoyed the trip and the golf buggy around the enormous area was a hit too :-)

The zoo has potential to be a great place to visit spreadout over a large area with many enclosures how ever it lacked animals many enclosers were empty or not enough animals in most of them.

Went here with some friends , the place looks run down , most popular area was the pandas, large area with lots of walking steep hills. Some exhibits looked empty,. They have a night safari which is supposed to be good but I was there only in the day.

This was an impromptu stop after Doi Suthep Temple, and I wished we had driven past. We were not expecting the San Diego Zoo, but we were dismayed to see cramped, filthy habitats. Many of the displays were vacant. The cost for each person was 540 baht for entry to the park and the aquarium, which is comparatively expensive for... More

We found the zoo very tired and sad, stopped on the way up to Doi Suthep. Many enclosures were quite small and uninviting. There were also lots of vehicles racing around. Nothing really to recommend it other than the greenery.

The aquarium was the most interesting. The so-called Rose garden was a complete waste of time as I have seen more roses in an ordinary garden. Not recommended unless you are very young or have never been to a zoo

Before we went we read some reviews saying the animals were unhappy. When we arrived we rented a golf buggy to get us around, expensive but worth it rather than sitting waiting on the shuttle. Overall the zoo is run down and not many animals were actually moving. The penguins in the penguin house were not in the water and... More

Many visitors head straight for the famous panda enclosure, but there is much more to the park than that. The aquarium is a highlight, and there are plenty of activities including zipline, elephant riding, a snow dome, and an amusing animal show. There is a shuttle bus which circulates the park. Note that foreigners pay more than 3 times the... More

We had a nice family day in the zoo, the sun was shining and the kids were happy. But we parents were not so happy about how the animals are kept. Many big animals had very little space to move and everything is very run down. Kids don't see the animals being unhappy, so it was a good day for... More
