The outskirts of Bangkok are places that are equally interesting as those within the city and are certainly worth visiting in addition to the city itself. The small borough of Samutprakarn, situated 25 kilometers away from the capital, is clear evidence of this, as it features the largest crocodile farm in the world.

This place exists thanks to Utai Youngprapakorn, who opened the site in in 1950. He was one of the first ranchers to create a farm for the preservation of rare and endangered species of reptiles. Later he opened a crocodile farm, which he did in order to provide the world market with valuable crocodile leather. After this, he became known as the Crocodile King.

Currently, more than a hundred thousand reptiles from different species live at the farm and include the largest crocodile that has ever been confined in captivity. This is the 40-year-old Yai, who is 6 meters long and weighs more than a ton. The Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm attracts its guests with breathtaking crocodile shows, in which talented Thai trainers perform a variety of fantastic stunts with them: for example, they daringly put their heads in in the gaping mouths of their reptile colleagues.

In addition to the crocodile shows, elephant shows are also held at the venue. Additionally, in the grounds of the farm, there is a serpent farm and a mini-zoo, which is home to monkeys, tigers and other animals, including some exotic varieties. A small museum of dinosaurs works there too, featuring thirteen mockups of the prehistoric giants.

I know an Airbnb place within walking distance. And my phone thinks I am there, but just close by.

Has seen better days. Price too high for foreigners even with residence card. Worth a trip just to have been there and done that but thats all.

This place could use a facelift. Lots to see, but somewhat depressing surroundings is a little saddening. Went on a Sunday afternoon and almost had the place to ourselves.

Absolutely enjoyed feeding the crocs with a fishing cane and chickens :))) Nice show with elephants as well. Park facilities would gain from a few renovations/upgrades though.

ขับรถออกนอกกรุงเทพไปหน่อยเดียว เป็นฟาร์มที่ใหญ่ที่สุดในโลก มีโชว์จับจระเข้ด้วยมือเปล่า นอกจากจระเข้ ก็มีส่วนที่เป็นสวนสัตว์ที่เปิดให้บริการ
