Phuket Zoo

Chalong, South Phuket

Visit Phuket Zoo during your stay here and enjoy a wonderfully different type of zoo. Lush tropical gardens invite you to stroll around in the shade of giant trees across bridges onto islands containing all kinds of strange animals.

New species of fish, birds and other animals are acquired each year as well as young from our various breeding programs. We exchange animals with other zoos to get rid of excess stock and bring in new blood.

Our well-trained staff will do their best to entertain you at the many shows and photo opportunities.

Cold drinks and ice creams etc. are sold at several different locations around the extensive grounds so you can sit and rest during your visit.

There’s hours of fun at Phuket Zoo, come and have a look!

Phuket Zoo is a private zoo. It is not supported by the government. The zoo opened in 1997.

The zoo occupies an area of about 30 rai or 12 acres or 5 hectares. The winding paths shaded by many large fig trees (Ficus species) let you wander around in comfort for hours.

Stands selling water, soft drinks, beer and ice cream, etc. are scattered around the grounds.

Several rest rooms/ W.C.s are available.

  1. Our young kids enjoyed the croc, monkey and elephant shows. Zoo is not very big and some of the animal enclosures small, there was some redevelopment work taking place, hopefully on improving the enclosures.

  2. More of an animal show place than a zoo, ok for families. I had mixed feelings about the place

  3. Last weekend my kids had a great time at Phuket Zoo. They really like monkey and elephant shows. But in my opinion the ticket quite expensive especially for us “farangs” (500 Thai Baht for an adult). I think the zoo is small, and not many animals. Anyway good for children and families to spend time together.

  4. The only zoo in Phuket I think. My daughter enjoyed their elephant show and crocodile show. Nothing wow for adults but ok for kids.

  5. I lived in Phuket for long time but I have just been there last year. My family liked elephants show, they asked foreigners to join. very funny!!!! My son were very happy when they were drawing pictures. No orchid blossoms at the garden, it seems no one taking care them much. Less marine animals at Aquarium & almost of the area are unlikely clean. 0:(

  6. Overpriced for the variety of animals. I guess the only highlight we enjoyed was the crocodile show – would be outlawed in the US for sure. Guy sticks his head inside the animals mouth! For real.

  7. Entertaining place to visit. We enjoyed the croc show, elephant and monkey shows. The aquarium could use a remodel. Otherwise nice place.
