  • You probably never imagined to touch and feel a live tiger, then you can go there and fulfill your dream. The place is very affordable which costs 800 THB pp to go to any section (large, medium or small). If you want to play with the Cubs, you can do that as well. You would probably get around 10 min to click pictures with them, touch them, sleep on them.... There is a restaurant also where you get reasonably priced food. You need to give some tips to the person who would take you inside the cage.
  • Keeping aside the ethics of this place, the staff kept us really relaxed in the cages which was surprising. Although what you see on the internet is much of the tigers are asleep, I can assure you that there are many tigers in the cages that were active. However, one thing I must mention is that one of the staff was pulling the tails of the baby tigers. Tigers did not seem drugged, however some were still active those who were sleeping the keepers were tickling them gently to wake them up with toys and tiny sticks. All in all, was a great experience, being intimate with these animals.
  • Keeping aside the discussion of how ethical or cruel it is to keep such magnificent beasts caged, this is a great place. Clean, simple to register and navigate. You get in, select the kind of Tiger you want to visit and for a little additional money you get a photographer to follow you and take pictures (CD given at the end and totally worth it). The animals themselves seem like they are taken care of and come on, they're Tigers. Amazing feeling sitting next to them.
  • Awesome place to get experience with live tigers with affordable price... u can spend 10 to 15 minute with live entertainment and live Royal Bengal Tiger ... and also get a chance to click some unforgettable images.... changes depend on time and size it will be staring from 60 USD pp
  • Amazing experience that anyone who visits Phuket must do. You get the opportunity to be so close to tigers and even touch them without having any barriers. Moreover, you get to choose the tigers you want to be with (baby tigers, adult tigers...) I would definitely do it again.
