The exotic products from the farm’s gift shop have been certified by The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cities), so indulge in some guilt-free souvenir shopping!

Itinerary

This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility and you can spend as much or as little time at any of the places that you visit. Unlike the tight schedules of coach tours, the private option allows you to do the tour at your own pace.

You will be picked up from either your hotel or directly from the airport and taken to the Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo, the largest crocodile farm in the world, located about ten kilometres outside Bangkok.

This world-renowned farm has more than 60,000 crocodiles, as well as elephants, monkeys and snakes. You can also witness exciting trained-animal shows, including crocodile wrestling. See daredevils taking on the ferocious crocodiles by putting their head right inside the reptiles’ mouths.

You can also shop for souvenirs at the farm’s gift shop. The items made from crocodile hide have been certified by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cities).

At the end of the four-hour tour, you will dropped off at the original starting point.
