Camels coming to Cha-Am

Post by prcscct » Mon Mar 10, 2014 3:28 am

Believe it or not. :shock:

Starting in June, visitors will have a chance to see the humped animals and enjoy riding one at Camel Republic, a new theme park in Cha-am, said Pamorn Tantichirasakul, the second son of Pena House Group’s founder Supot Tantichirasakul.....

The car-park for pick-up trucks & music-blaring cartoon-adorned coaches must be round the back maybe..?

Being Thailand a traditional theme would have been nice, like water buffalo rides and an authentic Thai village. As you indicate though, the Bangkok hi-so brigade would gasp in horror and cover their kid's eyes. :laugh:

Great, another place to buy over priced clothes, but with camel rides available. And, once you're done, continue on your way to Hua-Hin and stop at Venecia, where you can once again by over priced clothes, with gondola rides available.


Next on the agenda.......Ostrich City, complete with ostrich rides. :idea:

If they treat their camels like the Swiss Sheep Farm treats their horses, then they WILL get bitten! :cuss:

Has anyone been there? What is it all about? Riding camels?

I'm sure Big Boy did a photo review of this place some weeks ago?

I took some visiting friends who had two sons aged 6&4 about two months ago - they thought it was ok as a one off, and stayed for about 1.1/2 hours but wouldn't want to go again.

I went there a couple of weeks ago with the kids. I got Thai price on production of my driving licence but couldn't get OAP price which they told me was only for Thais!
Spent a couple of enjoyable hours there. You can feed all the animals for the usual 20 baht. There's a small aviary that you can enter and feed free flying birds. Careful they don't s*1t on your head when they land on you as seems to be their thing. Rides were on a token system and I guess quite expensive due to the lack of customers.
Certainly worth a visit but I don't think they'll get repeat trade.

I´m not sure what´s the worst- camel dung or horse manure.
