“Wouldn't really recommended ”

Maerim Crocodile Show
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

The entrance is 300baht and 100baht extra for pictures. You get to hold a baby crocodile which was cool. You also feed the large crocs with a rod with meat attached, that was also fun. The show however didn't entertain me; I felt sorry for the crocs whilst they were being yanked around and aggravated. My friend paid the 100baht to go into the enclosure and get a photo, the croc he sat on didn't move at all - the trainers physically opened it's mouth to make a better photo. I felt sorry for the croc and although my friend got some cool pictures I'm glad I didn't do it. I wouldn't really recommend.

The show is really cool. Kind of scary, there is even a part when the performer sticks his head inside the mouth of the crocodile! After the show you are given the opportunity to take pictures with a crocodile. The scary part is that they don't separate the one you take a picture with from the rest, you walk right into the crocodile pond where they are all just sitting. None of them really move around on their own but it was still scary! You can also hold a baby crocodile (which apparently don't bite.) Cool experience, affordable and how many of your friends have pictures of themselves stepping on a crocodile?!

Well worth 300baht
We got to each feed a crocodile off a rope and then held some baby crocodiles.

We then got to see the show which was crazy. Heads and arms in the crocodiles mouth. It pretty amazing to see. guys certainly deserve a tip at the end!!!

Guys are quite engaging and entertaining to the crowd as well with jokes and general mucking around.

Really enjoyed the show and looking people putting their heads inside the mouth of huge reptiles is at least teryfying if not more. Worth your visit.

One of the many attractions near Chinag Mai is Maerim Crocodile Show. Not so much of a show, more of a cruel way of handling drugged or hypnotised crocs so that you can see their teeth. Silly keeper put his head inside the croc's mouth to show how stupid he can be. Maybe next time the croc will eat him for lunch!!

Many more interesting things to see in the area. Give this one a miss!!
