As others have stated in their reviews, please don’t visit this zoo.

My heart went out for the majority of the animals all cooped up in terrible conditions. The sun was shining, the humidity high and an awful lot of animals had no shade or water. The ones that did, the smell from the old water was pungent.

The elephant was pacing back and forth, the tiger had awful red patches on its body. The hippo had about an inch of water.

Disturbing visit!

The zoo is well set out around a lake and larger than we expected . There are walk ways above some of the enclosures which give different views of the animals. A small train will also drive you around. The animals seem well cared for in clean enclosures.
Ideally they should not be kept this way... But a zoo is a zoo. There is a good amount of different animals and we also saw 3 wild dragon lizard type creatures just walking around loose.
There is a large food court, several refreshment areas around the zoo . Entrance reasonable 150 baht for foreigners.
Good few hours visit if you don't have a problem with zoos.

Do yourself a favor and don't go here if you care about animals. I arrived in Bangkok much too early for my flight and decided to check it out after seeing the good reviews and hearing that the animals were well looked after. The Lions looked sick with numerous red patches around their bodies. The poor camel is trapped in a tiny 10x10 meter enclosure, with no entertainment or enrichment. Birds are trapped in cages much too small. The penguin "exhibit" is nothing more than some concrete painted blue with dirty water. Nocturnal exhibit=foxes in small dirt patches trying to sleep while kids tap their cages. They also have two adult giraffes and at least 4 zebras (including one baby) in the same enclosure which is less than 50x50 meters. Last but not least was the elephant. He/she was pacing frantically and rocking back and forth aggressively, a clear sign of insanity from being cooped up in a tiny enclosure all his/her life. I nearly cried. I feel terrible for having supported this zoo and will not be returning.

As long as you are not into serious animal husbandry then this zoo is okay for a few hours. Its all very basic but if your idea of fun is looking at Thais getting excited over looking at animals in cages then go for it. THB 150 for foreigners 100 for Thai.
