Located in Min Buri, just north of Bangkok, Safari World is an 800,000 square metre complex comprising a Safari Park and a Marine Park. The drive-though Safari Park is inhabited by a range of African and Asian animals living in a natural habitat on show to visitors. The Marine Park offers visitors regular dolphin and seal performances that are extremely entertaining for children. This is an all day event - it's out of Bangkok so however you decide to get there, it's going to take you a while. There's also a lot for children to see and do so don't expect to get off lightly - the kids will drag you round this place all day!
Details: Safari World is open daily from 09:00 to 17:00.
Admission for an adult (Thai) is 530 Baht and 380 Baht for a child.
Admission for an adult (Foreigner) is 900 Baht and 600 Baht for a child.
How to get there: Given the distance involved, and that fact that you are probably taking a child, a taxi is recommended. Although expensive, the savings in convenience entirely outweigh the cost.
However, if you are adamant, a number 26 bus from Victory Monument will take you to Kilometre 9 of Ram Indra Road. From there you can take a mini-bus service to Safari World.
