Like Thai Food? At a Thai Zoo?

VIP guests at the grand opening of the night safari zoo in northern Thailand will not only be able to see exotic animals – they’ll have a chance to taste them. The Chiang Mai Night Safari Zoo will have its official opening on New Year’s Day, and the Exotic Buffet marking the event will include tiger, lion, elephant and giraffe, said Plodprasop Suraswadi, director of the zoo project.
