Very pricey for what it is.
It is not really zoo.
The show with the tigers looked torturous- They had to jump through fire hoops.
Had the photo taken with the cub. They lure it onto to your lap with a milk bottle which you feed it. It was obviously very hungry. The handler picked it up at once stage with its tail!

We went to zoo and it was very small 5-10 min walk. But tiger, bird and sea lion show was great. But don't go there any earlier before show starts.

Did visit the aquarium and felt sorry for the animals. The tigers with a super small place to live, the fishes in old tanks, same of them where liking. The smell too wild!It was a waste of time and money. I do understand that Thailand has a special lifestyle, which I usually like, but totally disappointed for the first time, after several visits in this country.

We went a few days ago and its was all pleasant enough,not the best zoo but had a good time watching the sealion and bird show as they were making the animals do pretty natural thingsn however I really feel strongly about them stopping the tiger show!I do believe they look happy enough in general but in they show it is not natural for a tiger to jump through a hoop and regardless about whether they are drugged or not the tigers are definately petrified of the staff in the show,they constantly shy away from them!we eventually got up and left the show cause I don't condone the things they were doing and people should stop standing for it so that they realsie the show is not worth doing,its un-natural!!!
