The Swiss Sheep Farm

Things to do in Cha-Am

Opened in July 2012, it’s a park of about 20 rais, with animals in a western-like farm settings. It’s called the Swiss Sheep Farm, but with an old Dodge rusting in the sun, an English phone booth and a Dutch windmill, you feel more like you are in a Thai park filled with random western clichés! The main activity is to enter the sheep fold and feed the sheep with grass, or bottle-feed a calf. There are also a few rides for small children, and a restaurant. Just like Santorini Park, the Swiss Sheep Farm is one of those trendy, “exotic” places where Thai people like to stop on the way to their holiday destination, to enjoy the scenery and take pictures. The children will love it too, but don’t expect an educational trip, as nothing is said about sheep-farming, shearing or dairy produce.

Location and admission

The Swiss Sheep Farm is on Phetkasem road (highway #4) at kilometer 201, on the left side of the road when coming from Bangkok, just before the PTT gas station and 500 meters before the fork to Cha-am and Hua Hin on the left (straight being the bypass to Pranburi). Open everyday from 9am to 6pm. Admission fee 120 bahts for foreign adults, 80 bahts for foreign children (less than 120 cm). It is one of these places where foreigners pay more than the Thais (more than twice more, as the Thais only pay 50 bahts for an adult and 30 bahts for a child).
