We've arrived in time for the lunch where there are a lot of food to choose from and you can eat as long as you like. We headed to the Elephant Show after and enjoyed an hour of presentation. It was fun, cute, and exciting....More

The usual crocodile show with brave and or stupid Thai men sticking their heads into their mouths. The elephant show is routing but amusing, but you have to wonder if there's any cruelty involved. Probably the best part is the 'cultural show' (which just about...More

This not the place to go, everything was dirty and looked like an abandoned place more than a zoo. The crocodile show is normal as usual. The poor elephants were not treated well, we bought so many bread to feed but it seemed still hungry....More
