Why Million Years Stone Park & Pattaya Crocodile Farm is special ?
Established in 1989, this privately owned and operated park has numerous displays of strange, and oddly shaped rocks, petrified trees, and other rock anomalies. Laid out in a park-like setting, the garden is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon, and if visitors so feel, they can also pop over to the crocodile farm that is just around the corner and feed the hungry crocs.
Crocodile Farm has the largest water area among the similar farms in Thailand with the largest population of salt water crocodiles in this country.
The Million Years Stone Park and Crocodile Farm is a good place for who to love in the beautiful nature and fine culture of Thailand. It was founded by Khun Suan Phanomwattanakul, a businessman who loves the nature.
The Million Years Stone Park and Crocodile Farm located on an over-70-acre piece of land, this Park & Farm is a new striking tourist attraction created with more than 20 years' efforts, for all nature lovers.
For over 30 years since his youth, Khun Suan had made every effort to collect natural objects that are valuable because of their rarity or oddity, such as Thai-style trained trees that are more than 200 years old from the early Rattanakosin period, fossilized tree trunks that are aged millions of years, and stratified rocks that are so colourful, in the hope that one day he would be able to build a tourist spot for people from far and near and those of future generations, to view and admire together his collection of natural wonders and to study and learn from the actual things instead of text books, pictures and hearsay which would be then only choices if the actual objects should be allowed to disappear.

Tips for you
Well worth to visit. The crocodile show is unfortunately very loud over a poor speaker system as usual in LOS.
Feed the crocodiles, ride the elephants pet the girafes.... I`m not much of a stonelover, but it was ok. Here you can take pictures of yourself with tigers if you wish :O If you`r there while they are feeding the crocs it`s a real treat. You can also feed them on other hours, but hold on to you`r stick with chicken. Lots of fun.
