Sri Racha Tiger Zoo

A mixed bag

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars

Five kilometres out of town are dozens of tigers, crocodiles and other animals. As zoos go, it won't win prizes for allowing its captives much space; some cages have hundreds of baby crocodiles piled on top of each other. The zoo has been in the headlines for the wrong reasons -- 102 tigers died there in 2004 following the bird flu outbreak. Today things are back to normal and if you want to be photographed holding a baby tiger cub or next to a (chained up) bear, then this is your opportunity. Check out the scorpion lady, who spends her days posing with dozens of the poisonous creatures clinging to her, the pig who cares for baby tigers, and the crocodile show. To compensate for the circus feel, there is an educational centre that explains about the reproductive life of a croc. Some of their lives seem to have ended prematurely, judging by the scaly handbags on sale around the corner.

How to get there: Follow Assumption Rd out of Sri Racha and look for the signs for the zoo. A tuk-tuk from Sri Racha will cost 300B return.
