In addition to the elephant camps, the Koh Chang area offers just a couple of other animal and reptile shows.
Koh Chang Crocodile and Snake Show – Koh Chang Animal Shows
At the rudimentary small arena of Koh Chang Crocodile and Snake Show in Chai Chet Beach, twice daily shows are 45 minutes duration.
Kids will enjoy the experience of loud music, daredevil stunts, snarling, gnashing crocs and hissing snakes but parents may question the ethics of what is a pretty basic, no frills production.
Oasis Sea World – Koh Chang Animal Shows
Off the island at Laem Sing near Chantaburi, you can visit the dolphins at Oasis Sea World.
Hosted in a large outdoor arena, the professional show is true to form for this kind of thing, with handlers encouraging the Irrawaddy and the pink humpbacked dolphins to perform various tricks and cute anthropomorphic stunts alongside displays of speed, splash and spectacle.
After the show, for an additional payment, you can then swim with the mammals, an undoubtedly unique experience for both kids and adults alike. As to whether or not you should be doing it, that is a question for each individual.
Transfer to and from your Koh Chang resort is included as part of the package. If travelling back to Bangkok with a private transfer, it can be scheduled as an additional paid stop.
