Five Exciting Zoos in Bangkok – Immerse in Wilderness amid Cityscapes

Bangkok is a colourful city and you'd never fail to find something that would fascinate you. You may find something fun to do in each corner of this vibrant city. Its collection of zoos showcasing the surreal beauty of Thai Wildlife is a must-visit for anyone who sets their feet in Bangkok.


Dusit Zoo

Spread over an impressive area of 188,800 square metres, Dusit Zoo is the first of its kind in Thailand. Also known as Khao Din Wana, it is surrounded by a number of iconic landmarks and many a service apartment in Bangkok. It was initially built as the private garden of King Rama V, which was left unattended for many years after his demise. Nowadays, one can find a mélange of animals at Dusit Zoo such as monkeys, alligators, lions, and tigers. The zoo has separate enclosures that sound intriguing to its visitors like Nocturnal House, Hawks Exhibit, Pheasants Aviary, and Reptile House to name a few. A star attraction of this place is that many African animals are facilitated to roam about freely in large enclosures.


Sriracha Tiger Zoo

A thriving tourist hot spot in Bangkok, Sriracha Tiger Zoo is where you can have an up-close and personal experience with these magnificent beasts. Founded in August 1994, this zoo specialises in breeding crocodiles, tigers, and other species that attract the interest of tourists. Sriracha Tiger Zoo aims to educate the society, entertain its tourists, and cultivate awareness in youth about the importance of conservation of natural resources through various programmes conducted at the premises. One can look forward to stroking the tigers and pose beside them to snap that highly coveted photograph.


SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World

SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World is one of the most extensive aquariums in Southeast Asia. It is deemed to be the size of three Olympic pools. Its location in Siam Paragon makes it a more alluring destination for tourists from near and far. Located close to properties such as Maitria Rama 9 Residence, this magical marine house showcases over 30,000 species of marine species from all over the world. In the Rain Forest section, you would come across aquatic creatures such as blind cavefish, ancient African lungfish, and otters. Visitors at this mesmerising place are treated to an array of shows such as penguin feeding, otter feeding sessions, shark feeding, and diver underwater talk. Even an hour at this ethereal place is going to be truly remarkable and memorable for anyone.


Safari World

Although the entire zoo is comprised of an eight-kilometre journey, the experience at Safari World is unrivalled by any of its kins. You can drive through this safari park at your own pace and let the beauty of the wilderness slowly sink into your mind. You'd surely see a variety of herbivorous animals such as antelopes, rhinoceroses, camels, and zebras. Cranes, ostriches, and pelicans are a common sight at this zoo. You will find that many of these animals are completely undisturbed by the proximity of human visitors.


Queen Saovabah Memorial Institute – Snake Farm

The Snake Farm at Queen Saovabah memorial Institute is a star attraction in Bangkok that strives to educate the public about snakes and their importance. One can look forward to an array of snake shows at this place where it's possible to gain knowledge on handling snakes, their venom, and habitats. There's also a dedicated outdoor area where snakes are bred.
