We've arrived in time for the lunch where there are a lot of food to choose from and you can eat as long as you like. We headed to the Elephant Show after and enjoyed an hour of presentation. It was fun, cute, and exciting....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
