It should be a must in Bangkok visit, specially with kids. Hotel pickup service was fantastic, in time. Children enjoyed most the orangutan and dolphin shows. Better to skip the river cruise which I felt like wastage of money. The last part of coming out through the open zoo was fantastic- all openly moving animals including lions and tigers were roaming near the bus.
The best experience of sea life till date. It overseeded my previous experience at underwater world pattaya. Getting tickets was hassle free - just show the QR code and get your ticket from Information Desk. Best feeding shows observed here. The sea otter feeding show was specially enjoyable with the otters asking for more food by shaking their hands above their chests. Next the penguin show, diver show, sea life 3D show, shark feeding show, etc. were awesome. You can chill around as it is cool inside with cafeteria everywhere. Those sharks in giant aquariums really amazed me and they are living in harmony with other fishes for the past 10 years (as learnt). The ambience was great with dim lights everywhere. A great place for kids to enjoy. There were numerous fishes as well, including the famous Giant of Siam - an Amazon fish.
"awesome experience. with good food, breeze views. loved it."

Best jungle tour ever! Safari world is great where you can observe wildlife closely that includes birds, giraffes, rhinos, etc. The main attractions are tiger feeding and lion feeding inside safari world (which we were lucky to see) where a woman in the rear of the car inside a cage feeds the tigers and the lions from inside. As learnt only she can come near to them as they know her scent. It was nearly a half an hour tour through the jungle life and it was a thrilling experience. The Marine park was also great with many human and animal shows such as Orangutan show, Cowboy stunt show, Spy war, Bird show, etc. and the notable Dolphin show which was best among all. Guys please do not miss this show. The international buffet was also great with varieties of dishes though you can try out Indian buffet as well. Thanks to thrillophilia for making this trip memorable.
Superb experience here at Safari world. It was a really organised tour with staff picking up at Century Mall and having a bus tour through the jungles of Safari park. The shows at Marine world were great - the best ones being the Dolphin show and the Spy war that were thrilling and awesome. The other shows included tiger show, elephant show, cowboy stunt, sea lion show, etc. The international buffet lunch was great too with different varieties of dishes prepared using chicken. There was Indian buffet lunch too. An ideal place for children to visit. It is one of my most memorable zoo visits in Thailand. If you are lucky you shall get a Thai massage from elephants in elephant show. The guide Sam explained all to us in Safari world and was really helpful. Thanks Thrillophilia for making this visit wonderful.

It was a totally amazing experience. Everything was very well coordinated and arranged. All thanks to Thrillophilia for this amazing trip.
The package tour was well organized by Thrillophilia.All transfers and arrangement was provided as per tour itinerary.Accommodation and food were very nice.
I booked this from Bangalore to Bangkok with my partner while we were on a vacation. And it truly did feel like one, as we travelled the whole day visiting places though we had long days, but still we felt energetic, because we had nothing to worry about, we did a lot of shopping and enjoyed the nightlife. It was all possible only because it was preciously managed and looked after. Cheers to the team.
I booked a trip this trip from Kolkata, tough it was not my first time being there, but still was a different experience as this time I wasn’t the one worrying about anything, we had and tour operator for that who has managed and booked everything for us in advance and it was undoubtedly one the best journey I have ever had.Thank you.
