Best excursion we had in Bangkok. Only did the afternoon trip and cost us 850 Baht per adult including entry (600 Baht normally) and private hotel pick up. Baby got in free. There are some “pay extra” items there, but staff were not pushy at all. I ended up spending less than 100 Baht, mostly on feed for the elephants. Elephant show is great, crocodile show I watched through my fingers. Other animals were a pair of lively lions (not the drugged up type you see at the so-called “Tiger Temple”). I can’t help but mention the Magic Show - the guy must be about 90 years old but I’ve beat seen up close magic like that - I still don’t know how they did it. All-in-all, a fantastic and highly recommended day out, around an hours drive from Bangkok.
We were so amazed. This is a must go especially if you came from a country where elephants are just seen in zoos. This is not a place for hard core animal rights people. We dont know what happens during elephant training but I'm sure bot everything is nice.
A geat place to watch elephants do some tricks. I was lucky also to witness a man perform some magics. The crocodile show is also interesting. It was my first time to see a human being play with crocodiles . My big disappointment was not having enough time to see the other animals in the zoo and also the nursery for orchids. The food in the restaurant was also a big disappointment. They were not tasty and the fried chicken was all gone in a few minutes.
The crocodile farm part was interesting. I also liked the orchid nursery. The mammals were being kept in sub-standard cages. The animal park would do well invest in their habitats.
Touristy spot for visitors but how many times in your life are you going to ride an elephant? Not that dangerous, but be careful.
