We visited the sea lion and tiger show just today with a few expectation. But the shows were very professional and surprisingly funny. We loved the big birds solving issues and also the otters:)! e felt sorry for the tigers, like for all big animals kept in a zoo, but they did well, too. At all it was a good... More

It was just sad walking trough this park! It was dark, there were missing signs all over, but the worst was the smallest cages for the animals with nothing inside for them! Would not recommend this trip at all, we just felt bad for the animals! The only good thing was the sea lion show, fun, and looked like they... More

The aquarium is quite dated and minimal with a few large fish tanks. No ornaments. No gravel. No plants. Just a plain tank with a hose and bubbles. Also in the zoo was a few monkeys, birds and koi fishes. Surprising there were 5 tigers, male and female lion and two leopards at the zoo. Quite a small enclosure as... More

We paid 700bht each adult. There wasn't a variety of fish and we saw everything in under 15 minutes (we were taking our time). The sea lion show was very good although we couldn't understand a word of what the lady was saying in English. You could take photos with a baby tiger whilst feeding it its milk, or get... More

I had read reviews about the crocodiles and royal cobra show and we avoided it due to negative reviews about the way animals are treated, so we picked this aquarium instead. Well the facility itself is quite dated, i would say the cages reflect the overall maintenance of the place. The aquariums were okay except the tanks are just bare... More

For an island like Samuit the zoo and aquarium are quite big sized still do not expect the level of European zoo. Nice visit for kids

YOu can see bird shows here, and a tiger show (which looks more horrifying than entertaining), sea lion show and clicked with all the animals - the tigers too - for a fee The animals have been trained to entertain through their acrobatics and they put up a decently good show. Taking tickets on the counter is easy, but they... More
