There is also the Hua Hin Animal and Rescue Centre. Entrance is free but there are no shops or attendants to look after you.

Is that the one heading out of town Cha Am way ? I've read about it and would like to visit with him also, maybe one day next week if I can find it!

No, that one is a fair drive away in Tha Yang province. Pagey picked up on the one I mean. Turn left off the Cha-Am road.

Yes, BB. That's the Animal Rescue Centre. Not really a zoo and is supposed to be a research centre. The one on Temple ground is in Tha Yang, quite a drive.

Animal Rescue - really? You have to wonder where some of those animals were rescued from. In fact the bears needed rescuing again.

I went to the HH zoo today, I will post my experience tomorrow if I have time, and a few photos if they are not too big to post.
