We visited the flight of the Gibbon and the zoo afterwards. Everything promised in the flyer is a lie. I can't believe all those positive comments here. I work as an animal care taker in one of switzerlands most iconic zoos and that zoo after the flight made me really sad. Lack of water, small enclosures, no space to hide,... More

A disappointing start to a fairly shabby experience. Under maintained, often grubby with many allotments closed .. not a thrilling experience for... More

Love this place. If the US has something like this, I am sure to take the kids there more often. Not many places where you can feed the giraffe, elephants, hippo and a host of other animals. Kids had a great time even the young one. Also, the place is very humane. I do not enjoy seeing animals in chain... More

Khao Kheow open zoo is the best zoo in Thailand. You can either visit the zoo during the day or at night is pretty awesome as well. The night animals show is the great experience. Must visit place for animal lovers!

It was good to see the animals running around in large open areas. You can feed the animals and you can pay 20baht to feed the lion or have your photo with the orangutans. We spent 3 hours here and will visit next time we are in pattaya agains.

My family visited this park during the long weekend, so we experienced long long line of cars during being in the park, so it is not recommended to visit this park during the long weekend.

Despite this being our 3rd trip to Pattaya, we had never heard of this zoo or anyone talking about or recommending it-having visited it, we find it very strange for it is a wonderful place which I cannot recommend highly enough. It is about a 40/45 minute taxi ride from Northern Pattaya. As a wheelchair user, there are parts, in... More

After coming here you will not want to go to other zoos around Pattaya as they are cruel! If you travel by car, entrance is 300 bahts adults and 150 bahts child. Golf carts are 350 bahts first 2 hours then additional 300 bahts per hour after, this is a must to go around park. Best parts were hand feeding... More
