Lousy, dirty, low maintenance is what I saw, many cages empty and 80% of animals here are birds. Waste of time and in my opinion it is a waste of reputation to Phuket city as well.

It has become really run down and the enclosures are in bad shape. There's also a lot of empty enclosures now so not a lot to see here. The animals don't look happy. I should have spent my money elsewhere.

We didn't read reviews before going to the zoo, I wish we had we would not have gone. Most of the time we spent feeling sick in the stomach looking at the poor animals in their concrete enclosures that look like they have not been cleaned in years. They all look so sad and I really think that animal rights... More

I visited this zoo on Saturday and was not impressed. The grounds seemed poorly kept, the animals malnourished, there were no signs or any information about what the animals were. There was no loo paper, and the toilets were utterly disgusting. I expect more for the price paid (500 baht per adult, 300 per child). The monkey show was the... More

One the filthiest places I have visited! In need for a major revamp! Animal enclosures are dirty and you can just tell those animals are not happy! We left after 20mins!

We decided to go to this Zoo on the suggestion of our driver after our first destination. We were mostly impressed. Staff were pretty good, crocodile show was cool but our only let downs were the elephants chained by the ankle. And the mummy monkey in the cage whilst everyone held her baby. They kept her close I think to... More
