Guest02 August 2016Never ever go to this place! Animals are treated badly, they even drug a tiger so that tourists can take pictures. Please do not support activities in Thailand where animals are involved such as zoos, elephant trekking, monkey shows, taking pictures with iguanas or monkeys on the street, etc...
