The Million Years Stone Park & Crocodile Farm

The Millions Years Stone ParkAfter more than twenty years of development, The Million Years Stone Park & Crocodile Farm was opened in 1992 and new attractions and features are constantly being added. Located on over 70 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, approximately 9 kilometres from Pattaya City, the park and farm is a terrific day out for all the family.

On entering the Million Years Stone Park, the visitor will find stunning gardens have been designed around the remains of a petrified forest. Amongst the fossilized tree trunks, exotic plants and trees proliferate, including 200 year old Thai-style trained trees from the Ayutthaya and early Bangkok period. They have an almost bonsai-like quality, though larger than the original Japanese variety, an award winning collection of which can also be found within the park. Elaborate rock gardens, made from colourful stratified stone that weigh up to 75 tons and the largest artificial waterfall in Thailand are also featured.

Feed crocodiles at Crocodile FarmIncluded in the animal sections, there is very varied selection containing, amongst others, albino bears and horses, tigers, cows, crocodiles, elephants, camels, lions,  bears, several species of deer, Eastern Sarus Cranes, emus, cassowaries and over 20  ostriches. Also a popular attraction with visitors are the Giant Catfish, the biggest freshwater fish in the world, which weigh up to 500 kg. (average 100 kg. on the farm), a shoal of snakehead fish from the Amazon River and the endangered Thepha fish, one of the world's most graceful species.

Of course, the main attraction is the largest collection of crocodiles in Thailand. There are thousands of the creatures, freshwater and saltwater, living in shady natural surroundings. The Crocodile Farm also has an extensive crocodile breeding programme.

Visitors can get close to some of the animals, by playing or having their photographs taken with them. If you get tired, comfortable coaches and trams are available to carry you around the site. The crocodile shows, animal shows and magic performances run six times a day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the grounds are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week.
