Face and conquer your fear — where else could you get away with dragging the huge crocodile with its huge teeth by its tail?
5000 crocodiles inhabit — and rule — the Phuket Zoo. These large predators have their own show, and the emotions run high enough to shock the people who’ve seen it all. But you’re not of the easily scared, are you?
The daily shows in the Phuket Zoo are available at 09:45, 12:45, 15:15, 17:30.
Open hours: daily from 8:30 to 18:00
Where to do?
The Phuket Zoo
A great place for a family vacation and a true joy for animal lovers — the animals here aren’t just locked behind bars of the cage, they take parts in all sorts of outstanding shows.39
Price range: the entry ticket for the Zoo is 500 bats for adults and 300 bats for children. And for just 200 bats on top you can personally grab the crocodile’s tail and drag it around the place, taking pictures of the process as you wish.
