This attraction is geared towards kids and has a decent restaurant, photo opportunities with a tired Bengal Tiger, and a show with alligators. The main attraction is a Elephant show where you can feed them for 20 baht at the end and a ride. During my recent visit the magic show was the best part. It is something for your... More

Watch the show of the elephants it is awesome and feed them bananas. Do not forget to take pictures and do not be afraid, not dangerous at all. The tiger is a waste of time it is sedated... Remember to take a pic with the fake cocodrile. Suitable for all ages.

As per previous descriptions this is located about 1.5 hours drive away from Bangkok. On entering the zoo you are immediately faced with a tiger chained up in a small compound for a photo opportunity. The tiger looked to quite thin and didn't even have a bowl of water nearby. Following this the main attractions are elephants and crocodiles. The... More

Besides the fact that it took more then an hour drive from Bangkok to visit this place, I felt it.was an absolute waste of my vacation time. So sad to see how the animals are treathed in this place. I saw a few old timers (cars) in and around the place and I thought, the management could better spend some... More

We hired a taxi for the day for THB 1000/= from outside out hotel (Mr Buapa - 0813836286) and did the floating market first and then Samphran Grounds. It was a day well spent with the family and enjoyable too. Our main attraction were the huge crocs and the show. The elephant show is good and between each show they... More
