Get up close and personal with Thailand's most iconic natural inhabitants at Tiger Kingdom.

  • We had already purchased tour but we did not imagine the amount of tourists who came. The Tigers are basically slaves to the photos of others. It was sad

  • 餐廳可以看到老虎,有帶電的電欖圍著,我選了和中等偏大size的老虎影相要600Baht,老公怕所以不進去,只有我去,於是加錢300Baht 請人幫手影相,他們只準帶相機,不準拍片 
  • With all the mixed reviews, and different points of views, take a trip and see for yourself (been to a zoo lately?). We did the trip because where else will you be able to in a cage with a tiger and p...  read more »
  • Man this was awesome! You can pet and take pictures with real life Tigers. They seem like they are taken care of well and are not mistreated. Very professional staff, we'll kept grounds and very modern. The zoo keepers show a lot of love for the Tigers and the Tigers seem to love it there. They maybe on sleep meds but they are very healthy. I would recommend anyone in the area to go
  • Do not go in this horrible place. There is nothing of real here except the torture of this beautiful animals. I was here 3 years ago: it was one of the most terrible experience of my life. Tiger is not a pet. Open your eyes: these places are a cancer for the preservation of the tiger. Please, before to go, try to think why they have always baby tiger???? Where they found all these baby tigers?? How can be that an adult tiger do not bride you?? Come on, use the brain: drugs, there is any other possibilities!!!! OPEN YOUR EYES: do not go in this place and do not feed this horrible business. PS. Recently another tiger temple has been closed finding horrible torture to the animals. Find it in the web.
  • This place is a moral conundrum. No, they don't drug their tigers despite what your friend swears is the truth. They behave like tigers in zoos and other spaces. If anything, handlers will go out of their way to prove otherwise. That is not the problem. This is basically a selfie paradise. People come here for a very controlled and manicured experience of touching a tiger's belly, tail and/or ass, as anything else is dangerous and off-limits. If you want your perfect picture with a bored animal, this is the right place and the handlers will attract their attention so they look at the camera. However consider this: these animals can co-exist with humans for a max of 3 years before they are too big for the handlers and tigers live on average 13, all the way up to 30. They are very expensive to maintain and cannot be returned to the wild. A competitor, Tiger Temple, was caught killing and selling their parts to China as reported by different news sites. If you ask the Kingdom's employees, you get vague mentions of a farm or reserve of some sort to keep older tigers, but what you choose to believe is up to you.
  • Big sleepy lazy cats. I don't what to think about it. I don't think it's too good for tigers to live in such a conditions, same as workers at a office. Small cube and lot of food. But I can agree that chance to touch Tiger and stay alive is not happening everyday. Except for Tiger beer.
  • Tiger Kingdom is an amazing place to come face to face with tigers. We were very concerned about the rumor of mistreatment of the animals. They did appear lethargic during the day but perked up later and were playful. This is a definitely a tourist-oriented place and NOT a tiger's native habitat but it was a memorable experience for the family and one I'd tentatively recommend.
