Million Years Stone Park

Overview

1.2

Million Years Stone Park is located fifteen minutes outside of Pattaya. The attraction is set on more than 70 acres of land and tries to encompass what it describes as the three natural kingdoms, - animal, vegetable and mineral. The site contains many gardens, a rock garden and a zoo, all with the original aim of creating something beautiful for the visitor to behold. However, there is now huge amounts of breeding, particularly with the tigers and crocodiles, and a number of animal shows that do not put the welfare of the animals first.
