Zoos in Phuket

This mountainous island on the Andaman Sea is famous for its beaches but unbeknownst to most tourists, Phuket is also a tropical paradise for flora and fauna alike. Bright, colourful birds, majestic elephants and daunting 10-feet long crocodiles are among the many cool creatures you can see at the zoos in Phuket and also its animal parks. The zoos here are known for their circus-like animal shows which can be a little unsettling, especially if you are used to the more Western format of zoos.

Here is the list of 6 Zoos in Phuket
