Great vacation idea: Let’s all cram up on a raft and float above fifty hungry crocodiles (PHOTOS)

The five-day holiday is coming up. Can’t decide where to go? No budget to go somewhere far away? Been to Hua Hin 248 times? We might have a perfect vacay spot for you.

Coconuts recommends you try a trendy and adventurous activity called “crocodile fishing” at Elephant Territory Pattaya. Only two hours away from Bangkok, this place is great for those who trust that absolutely nothing can go wrong in Thailand.

Once you board the raft, you will be given a stick and fresh meat you can feed to the hungry crocodiles in the pond. Just make sure you stand firm in case they pull too hard.

The photos of these Chinese tourists having the time of their life went viral yesterday. The Tourism Authority of Thailand has said it will give the facility a visit to check safety measures. You know, because the raft could crumble or flip.

It is reported that this activity has been popular with Chinese tourists for over a decade, but few locals know about it.

It is indeed a hidden gem.
