Scenes that will always play on my mind. So sad to see Crocodiles brought down to this level.Little ones in plastic tanks, no water, no food and giving the distress call, obviously terrified. Large Crocodiles two to a tiny pen in the water with nowhere to get onto dry land and dead fish and plastic rubbish floating on the surface.

My own fault for not researching this before as I didn't realise these poor animals were being dread for death! They are cooped up in very cramped tanks in stinking conditions and the guide tells you they only feed them a little and only every few weeks because it adds to the up keep cost!!?? He also proudly points out... More

As soon as we found out about this crocodile farm, we immediately dropped one of the temple visits from our itinerary to make space for this wonder of Siem Reap. Don't worry about the other reviewers who have obviously missed the point of this attraction -- you must absolutely pay the minimal extra fee to watch the crocodiles eat a... More

Decided to stop and have a look as visited some previously in Thailand and been rather fun. This is a farce to even be advertised as a paid for excursion. Yes it's only $3 but they do nothing for the money and it's tiny. We had a guide who walked us up the stairs to the viewing platform then run... More

Dropped off by tuk tuk driver and dutifully paid our $3us thinking we would see way more than concrete tanks crammed full of smelly crocs. No chance to feed them nor a guide to explain. Shop prices were exorbitant and you can get the same products in town for about half the price. Avoid!

Looked nothing like the image on Cambodian tourism website. No crocs lounging about on a dusty bank around a watering hole. Charged $3 not the $1 advertised on website to "take the tour of the farm". Didn't matter, however the "tour" consisted of a young man walking us over to some stairs and leaving us there telling us they have... More

Honestly, this is probably not the best place for a crocodile to live. There are what seems like hundreds of crocs all inside of a concrete enclosure with a few pools for them to cool off in. Some of the crocs were massive and others looked sickly small. I spent over an hour watching the crocodiles and some of them... More

On the way to Tonle Sap lake the tuk-yuk driver suggested I visit this crocodile farm. Paid $3 for entry. Nothing but a few concrete tanks with a walkway on top for you to view sleepy crocodiles from. Mostly small crocs, no big ones. A waste of time and money. There is a store selling croc leather products. I wanted... More

Having left the disappointing lotus farm I became even more dejected. Being a biologist I was expecting to see crocodiles of all ages living in humane conditions but not so. They are bred in large concrete pens to be slaughtered. On arriving, and not knowing what to expect, I paid a $3 entrance fee which included a young guide who... More

3 dollars us? for what? The place is tiny-merely a lure to get you into their shop. I asked the guide for a tour he said he was too busy b/c there were a lot of people in the shop. We walk around and see a few crocodiles then come back to the entrance and there he is sitting around... More
