The crocodile show is loved by young children. The elephant show is loved by all ages and quite informative. Parts of the show is narrated in English. The entry fees however is 5x times higher for tourists, an obvious deterrent to most.

Went here after Damnoen Saduak for lunch, then elephant and crocodile show. Lunch is a combination of Thai and Chinese dishes. Elephants showed tricks they were obviously trained to do, which is not their natural instinct. Same for crocodiles. These animals are here to entertain,...More
