We decided to visit the Pattaya sheep farm, a relatively new attraction, which opened in June this year.
The first plus point was the absence of any double pricing. All visitors whether they're Thai or foreign are charged a nominal 50 baht entrance fee.
Visitors are able to feed and pet the sheep, donkeys, cows and deer and I was even able to pick up one of the lambs.
There are plenty of photo opportunities and also the chance to enjoy a cup of coffee or shop for a few souvenirs. The second plus point was that the number of kiosks/stalls has also been kept to minimum. You aren't being constantly harassed to buy something and you don't have to face the prospect of aggressive traders around every corner which is the case at a lot of attractions in Thailand.
The Pattaya sheep farm must also be the only sheep farm in the world with a resident monkey!!!!
Overall the farm is very nice and I would highly recommend it. For those of you with kids, it's the perfect place to while away a couple of hours and I'm sure the kids will enjoy hand-feeding the animals.
The only complaint I had was the building work that was still going on. Whilst it was confined to small area, there was still the risk of an accident occurring, The area where the work was taking place was right next to the main pathway and was not cordoned-off. There was unsecured scaffolding and builders working with angle-grinders and welding equipment just above the heads of passing guests. For anyone who visits in the next few weeks please take care and keep your eyes open for any potential danger.
