About the Zoo
This is one of the most interesting zoos in Thailand. It is interesting because most of the animals are free. They do not inside cages, some of them walk around the territory, and some behind small fences. Almost every animal can be fed, whether it be an elephant or a giraffe, a crocodile or a tiger. It causes great pleasure and delight, both in adults and in children.
The zoo is big, it’s impossible to walk transport. You can come here by car or motorcycle. In the territory, you can rent a golf car or use the local tram.
While driving along the road, you will see deer, roe deer, monkeys and other animals.
Animals are not afraid of human, they do not run away from you, but on the contrary, they come to you, so there is a chance to pat them and feed them.
Elephants are a special part of the zoo. If you dreamed to touch the trunk and feed these creatures, then it will turn out.
Throughout the territory, there are special parking lots, both for cars and for motorcycles.
It’s a funny orangutan, while we stood it made people laugh with their poses.
In order not to get lost, take a map of the zoo, which is located at the entrance. Or print it from my site.
In the zoo, there are several artificial waterfalls and other interesting landscapes.
In addition to safe residents, there are also dangerous ones, for example, tigers, lions, hyenas and others, but they are all behind glass fences.
By the way, the tour of the Flight of Gibbon is held here.
Not many people could see the real rhino and even fewer people have a chance to feed it. You will have a chance to touch, take interesting pictures and feed it. But be careful, this is a dangerous animal.
Food for animals can be bought both outside and inside the zoo.

The most budgetary option by your own transport. If you choose an excursion, then I advise you to look for a low price, because the zoo is the same. The difference in price because some agencies earn more on it and some less.
