Bangkok is well known as the gateway to Southeast Asia. This city has a number of exotic sights, smells, and tastes that will excite those new to this corner of the planet, and enough creature comforts to make them feel pampered as well. Though many use Bangkok as a jumping-off point to more remote areas of Thailand, as well as neighboring Laos, Cambodia, Burma, and even Vietnam, there is quite a bit to do nearby.
This combined zoo and marine park is the largest in Thailand and one of the largest in the world. Highlights include a drive through the open wildlife areas, a crocodile garden, tapir garden, and jungle river cruise. Daily shows are available, making this both theme park and zoo. These include orangutan boxing, stunt shows with cowboy and spy themes, sea lion, lion, and tiger feedings, and much more. The park is very large, and the activities are vast and diverse.
Safari World is a zoo for those who don’t like zoos… of course like any animal parks it has some good and some not so good sides but here animals certainly do have huge amount of space to roam free. Opened since 1988, Safari World is divided in two distinct areas: The open space of Safari Park where you can drive through in your car or in the park bus represents 480 acres for its open zoo and 180 acres for its bird park, then the Marine Park which is more of a traditional zoo mixed with many shows, lots of food stalls and plenty of souvenir shops.
Safari World in Bangkok is divided into two themes giving you the best of both the land wildlife and marine wildlife. While Safari Park takes you on a ride which introduces you with hundreds of wild animals in their natural habitat, Marine Park houses a vast spectrum of aquatic animals on display.
