Million Years Stone and Pattaya Crocodile Farm
The Million Years Stone and Pattaya Crocodile Farm is a rather unusual - but captivating attraction that caters to tourists who love aesthetics and adventures with exotic animals.
The 70-acre land is divided into two – the stone park and the crocodile farm. The stone park has a large collection of stratified rocks in grotesque or animal shapes – each weighing up to 75 pounds. There are also petrified trees that are over 100 million years old and Thai-styled trained trees that look like bigger versions of the iconic Japanese bonsai. The garden offers a peaceful ambiance perfect for leisure walks. The stone park is also a popular place for photo shoots. After a visit to the park, tourists can then pop over to the crocodile farm that is just around the corner and see the crocs and other animals. Visitors can feed the crocodiles with a chicken using a pole for THB 100 and give bananas to giraffes for THB 50. Shows featuring handlers teasing and playing with the crocodiles give delight and a load of thrill to visitors.
The Million Years Stone and Pattaya Crocodile Farm is located in 22/1, Moo 1, off highway 7, Naklua, Pattaya.
