Zoo on Phuket

If you are going to come to Phuket with a small child, you will certainly want to go through children’s attractions and excursions. There are a lot of them on the island. I have already started talking about children’s attractions, restaurants and discounts. Today I will introduce you to the Phuket Zoo.

❗ In my opinion, it is worth going if you have never been in the zoos of tropical countries, if you want to see the crocodile show, elephants and monkeys in one place and want to make a photo with them. For the rest of the zoo, you can safely skip: a ticket dear, and very mediocre place itself. To see the parks with children, it is better for the same money to go on an excursion "Animal world".

History of the Phuket Zoo

In 1997, a small private zoo opened on Phuket Island, which is located in the Chalong area. On the green area, 5 hectares are growing tropical flowers, ficuses are inclined above the paths, creating shady alley, and wild animals roam in aviars. Of course, you do not need to compare the Phuket Zoo with Singapore or even with Safari Park. On our island, everything is much more modest and homemade. Your children will like long-term ostriches, multicolored parrots, strict cranes, funny tucanis and peacocks showing their delicious tail. Where else can you take a picture with a Bengal tiger, two-meter python albino and orangutung?

Show crocodiles

Little shows are waiting for you: ferocious crocodiles, funny monkeys and good-natured elephants. Zoo is the only place where you can see all three performances. Dexterity and ability to tamper terrible crocodiles splits all stereotypes about these reptiles into the rats: Thaisy falls on the peel back, jerked behind the tail and shove their heads in the mouth. Do not think that they are somehow stitching or smolden. It is elementary unprofitable in the money plan, and illegally. Individuals selected for shows are less aggressive than hundreds of their relatives, seeing one eye out of the water. Thai telders are really risking, and the show makes not only young guests, but also their parents. And if you do not believe, at the end of the show you can take a picture of the crocodile on the back. Fearfully?

Show elephants

Meet the good-natured giants of elephants. At first glance, they seem to be attense, because they are so huge. Just imagine that the ear of an adult elephant weighs 90 kilograms. But what graceful tricks they do! Play football and basketball, dance and draw. You can even buy something from the arts of these good-natured giants. And someday an elephant weighing a couple of tons did Thai massage? On the Elephants show you have an excellent chance to experience unforgettable emotions from this procedure. Sounds too extreme? Then feed the elephants with bananas and take a picture of the memory with the symbol of Thailand.

Show monkeys

Special schools of monkeys are open in Thailand, where long-tailed students cut the coconut collection coconuts within 2-3 months. The hosts are twisted at 4500-5000 for the course of study, but graduates with a degree of degree will be able to help them in their work. Macaki on the show in the zoo are smart not by year, they ride bicycles, posing on the podium and even solve arithmetic tasks.
