It's the zoo in Nakhon Pathom province. It emphasises in crocodile pond. You can buy the meat and feed them by using the stick. What fore, there're a lot of animals such as elephants, monkeys, including snakes. But the zoo is so old. And beware...More

This place is not even a zoo. Monkeys are kept in tiny cages, as well as two lions found sharing a little cage with a kid running around it "playing with them" and you could see their urge to move and play but their cage...More

Main highlights of this attraction include 2 show performances - one by the tricks-performing elephants and the other involving trainers risking their lives to perform dangerous stunts with the crocodiles.

A nice place with more exotic vegetation, ferocious animals such as crocodiles or lions, playful animals like monkeys and of course the ancient symbol of the country, the elephants. Pleasant shows with elephants that tell you stories from the history of the country, or crocodile...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

I want to believe that the elephants are treated well, they seem to like their mahouts and in general look in good shape. If you must ride an elephant at some point in your life, this is probably an OK place to do so. However,...More
