    The Tigerzoo

    by globetrott Updated Oct 13, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a zoo of tigers and other animals as well where we had spent some time, while exploring the area around Chon Buri. Agaist some fee you can touch or feed the tiger and do other things that are totally impossible in other Zoos, this is what we had been told. I also found it quite unusual to see these 2 men sitting next to a sleeping tiger. (see them in my 2nd Picture) It is quite obvious that these tigers were set under drugs and I am afraid such stupid things will continue as long as people will pay the entrance-fees for such Zoos.
    There are butterflies and more animals to see there as well.

  • Sriracha Tiger Zoo

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sriracha Tiger Zoo is a famous and well-known must visit place in Chonburi. It's merely 30 to 45 minutes from the Sriracha City and Pattaya. You can see and discover awesome tiger zoo and diffirent kinds of animals that is beautifully keep and maintained by the place. You can hold the tiger cub in your arms, feeding milk and you can take pictures with you, though there is a charge in having one, it's 150/shot! Expensive but worth paying..huh?!

    Actually, I never really thought of going there but a friend(Phil_uk_net) suggested to go visit this place, so we did! And surprisingly, saw very cutie tiger cubs and the small ones are sipping milk to the mother pig! And Mother tiger has a piglets sipping milks too! It really is cute!

    The zoo consists of more than 200 Bengal tigers and 100,000 crocodiles. It also provides many activities and shows which include crocodile wrestling (women) and elephants playing basketball. Make some new friends with the camels, deers, wallabies, elephants, Peruvian guinea pigs, ostriches and especially the baby tigers which were born in the zoo.

    You can witness, some through my pictures when I go along!

  • Tiger with piglets

    by yen_2 Updated Aug 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I read in the brochure that they are a happy big one family and it looks like they really are! I've seen this one in the nursery too and the mother tiger is feeding the piglets along with the tiger cubs! You can take pictures with the tiger cubs and you will be the one to hold the milk for him! You have to pay 150 baht/shot! Not bad though...

  • Photo taking

    by yen_2 Updated Aug 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As mentioned above, you can hold and take pictures with them but you have to pay for 150 baht/shot! There are 2 types either you will put your face in the t-shirt or in a mug with their camera of course or you can have a picture with your camera! The staff knows how to take pictures with all those new digi gadgets maybe because there are too many visitors they already have with a camera in their own!

    Right next to the nursery, there are 2 studios in there so your choice!

    With the tiger cub..

  • Small Lake

    I've seen this very nice small lake just right next to the Thai Cafe, it's good to sit down and drink if you're not into hurry. I saw a couple of people there eating and drinking and just looking far away..Cool breeze though..not bad odor from the waste or anything as the place is clean and maintained!

  • Wallaby

    by yen_2 Written Aug 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I really don't know if this is really a Wallaby...this is the first time again, I've seen this one but sure looks really cute. The pic is a kid I just happen to bump to, asked him if it's okey and then he said fine! He looks very happy to have it in his lap though..You can take a pic with him but be sure to pay first, 50 baht/shot! Please be reminded that all the animals has a payment if you like to take pix with you alone but if you just snop some, it's okey though!

  • Bang Saen Beach Resort

    by yen_2 Written Aug 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bang Saen itself is a small town close to Sriracha about 30 minutes drive from the city proper. The main highlight of the town, I guess, is the very crowded beach...small cottages piled up that stretches very long. Most of the people around are the locals. And I've seen kids playing in the sands were it's not actually very nice. But, the air from the sea is worth though..just waiting for the sunset and the weekends to be over...There are many small stalls of foods lined up just beside the cottages and sets. Pick your choice!

  • Thai Roofs along the Bay

    by yen_2 Written Aug 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The driver of hubby was very kind to tour as around the place. And I was very happy to know that there are places around Bang Saen that are worth the time..He brought us in this over looking the bay side where there are pretty thai roofs and the pretty sunset that dominates the long stretch of bayside area.

    I noticed also that the bayside is really very nice, clean and is obviously newly constructed part. There are still men doing some work in the other side of the bay..You can do all sort of things in there aside from sitting along while waiting for the sunset, you can also jog around..It is a nice place!
