Phuket Zoo

Tiger at Phuket Zoo, Thailand

Phuket Zoo, located just south of Phuket Town

Phuket Zoo, located just south of Phuket Town is well worth a visit during your holiday in Phuket. Lush tropical gardens invite you to stroll around in the shade of giant trees across bridges onto islands containing all kinds of strange animals.

Phuket Zoo houses an amazing range of large animals such as crocodiles, camels, tigers, elephants, and deer. There are more than 12 acres of lovely gardens full of Asian and other animals. Phuket Zoo also has a bird park with many rare and colorful birds in all sizes, an aquarium with a great variety of both fresh- and saltwater species from around the world, and an orchid garden with thousands of Dendrobium and Vanda hybrid orchids, including hundreds of Thai species in many different colors.

In addition to this Phuket Zoo also offers three shows in regular intervals during the day with animals doing amazing performances; Monkey Show, Elephant Show and Crocodile Show.

Monkey Show

Monkey Show at Phuket Zoo, Thailand

The monkey show at Phuket Zoo takes place four times daily at: 09:00, 12:00, 14:30 and 16:45. This show with short-tailed macaque monkeys is a lot of fun and a favorite with the children. Previously these monkeys worked as coconut pickers, which they can do very quickly by biting through the stem that holds the nut to the tree with their extremely sharp teeth. Both the monkeys and their trainers are highly skilled. The performance of monkeys doing maths is really amazing and never fails to delight the children in the audience. Different monkeys do different tricks, including diving for coins!

Elephant Show

Elephant Show at Phuket Zoo, Thailand

The elephant show at Phuket Zoo takes place three times daily at: 10:30, 13:30 and 16:00. The elephants are very happy to demonstrate their skills for you and their enthusiasm is obvious. Balancing acts, football games, disco dancing and races are just some of the featured performances. The show is followed by an opportunity to have your photograph taken with them and feed them some bananas. Some of the elephant's paint and their work can be found for sale in the souvenir shop.

 

Crocodile Show

Crocodile Show at Phuket Zoo, Thailand

The crocodile show at Phuket Zoo takes place four times daily at: 09:45, 12:45, 15:15 and 17:30. Crocodiles cannot really be tamed and basically remain wild dangerous animals that can eat people. This show is thrilling, nerve wracking and exciting. Watch the handler catch and hold a crocodile longer than himself! The head in the mouth trick is rather worrying as you just don't know if today is going to be the trainer's last performance! An exciting display of bravado. Not suitable for people of a nervous disposition.

Phuket Zoo is located on Soi Palai off Chao Fa (East) Road about halfway between Phuket Town and Chalong Circle (a 15 minute drive from Phuket Town or 10 minutes from Chalong Bay).

Opening Hours: 08:30 – 18:00 daily
