Give the children a special holiday treat that they probably will never forget at Paradise Park Farm in Koh Samui which is a petting zoo with all kinds of cute birds and animal that are tame enough to eat out of the hand and clamber all over visitors looking for treats. Up near the rainforest on Khao Pom Samui’s highest point the park set in a twenty acre landscaped area is an interesting place to visit.
The park was originally limited birds. Now in addition to parrots, love birds, a pair of white peacocks, parakeets, macaws, ostriches, unusual multi coloured doves, chicken and roosters there are goats, tiny hedgehogs that fit in the palm, deer, rabbits, monkeys, squirrels, deer and ponies among other tame animals. Its most famous residents are Molly and Mommaem two talking parrots that can hold a conversation with visitors in Thai and English and even sing in both languages and Coco the monkey who loves to groom guinea pigs in the adjacent enclosure. The animals live in different zones within the zoo that are connected by walking trails. Strategically located rest areas allow visitors to relax and enjoy panoramic views of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan below. Visitor facilities include a restaurant that serves a selection of Thai and western dishes, a children’s play area, shady jungle walk ways and manmade water features that are set in a landscaped garden. The infinity edge swimming pool that provides the best views of the surrounding area and the Gulf of Thailand is a nice touch. Gorgeously coloured birds eating out of the hand, iguanas, squirrels and monkeys using visitors as climbing posts is the biggest attraction here and children get a kick out of the rare experience of hand feeding the tame animals and birds. Families can spend a pleasant day interacting with the animals and birds and relaxing in the pool as it is always cooler on the slopes in Khao Pom than down on the beach.
