Korat Zoo – A family day out in Nakhon Ratchasima

Korat Zoo – it is more than just a day out!

Korat ZooKorat zoo has so much to offer its visitors. I loved zoos as a kid– a lot of animals you ‘d never see elsewhere worldwide. In college, a couple of teachers periodically called for zoos to close and animals to be released back into the wildlife, for zoos were cruel to animals … As an adult, I look at animals as they come. Some I am concerned with pity (a suffering animal in a little or dark enclosure). Oher animls with jealousy (being fed big pieces of meat to simply relax and look adorable). And those gentle adorable ones with softness (yes, I’m still a sucker for an adorable cat). Lastly, some with anticipation (sorry, chickens, however you’re tasty).

Even as zoos wind up being a mainstream fixture across the world, each one does things a little differently.

Covering an area of 218 acres, Nakhon Ratchasima Zoo is one Asia’s finest animal parks. Set in the large area, the zoo includes a number of animals from Africa.
