Known for its nightlife and status as a resort town, Pattaya is often overlooked when considering family vacations. However, over the years Pattaya has reinvented itself as a more family-friendly destination. Aside from the many amazing beaches and hotels, Pattaya hosts a variety of activities that are fun for the entire family, regardless of age. One of the most interesting, and fun, attractions for families is the Khao Kheaw Open Zoo.
Whenever planning a family excursion, be prepared for all possibilities. Make sure to have a hotel confirmed, cash on hand, transportation organized, and most importantly, have a great time. The Khao Kheaw Open Zoo will easily fill an entire day during a family trip to Pattaya. Many amenities are available in the gift shops and other kiosks around the Zoo, but it is important to have a small survival kit of bandages, tissues (for the washrooms), moist hand wipes and/or sanitizer, water, and small snacks. The survival kit helps to prevent any small problems that may arise when a kiosk is not handy, or when watching a show.
Ticket Prices and Services
Ticket prices for the Khao Kheaw Open Zoo are 300THB per adult, and 150THB per child, and include two free shows, making the entrance fee quite affordable. For travelers who have rented a vehicle, the Zoo is easy to drive through, with many areas for parking and seeing the sights. The Khao Keaw Open Zoo is much too large to walk through, so if travelers do not have a car with them, golf carts are available for rental by the hour. Read More
