Khao Kheow Open Zoo

#1 of 66 things to do in Pattaya
Khao Kheow Open Zoo has become a true home for about 300 animal species, such as elephants, tigers, hippos, monkeys, giraffes, roe deer, various birds and some rare and endangered species. Many of them ramble freely around the zoo’s territory, which makes this place look rather like a safari venue than a typical zoo. You can buy some special forage and feed the animals out of your hands – just make sure you’ve captured that moment on camera!

The park’s territory is enormous and very scenic, so it makes sense spending a whole day here or even staying for a night-time tour, which is an adventure in itself. Refreshments are provided in local cafés.
