Tiger Kingdom, Mae Rim

3.0
#1 of 7 in Zoos & Aquariums in Chiang Mai Province
Get up close and personal with Thailand's most iconic natural inhabitants at Tiger Kingdom. The park provides a home for these gorgeous cats, and the skilled staff will help you to decide which one you want to pet and have a photo with. Heed the advice and guidance of the keepers: tigers are wild animals and their docile, welcoming behavior from one moment to the next is not something to be taken for granted.

    If you must see, pet, and play with a tiger without being its snack this is your place. It is a very slimy tourist trap with all the proper trimmings and trappings. Organized numbered waiting system, ...  more »

    So I had heard a lot of mixed reviews about this place, was it fair on the tigers or was it essentially cruel towards the tigers? My boyfriend and I decided we would go and form our own opinions. Yes ...  more »

    If you have been other parts of Thailand and you will know for sure that visiting elephant or tiger camps is most or less the same. I would rate this tiger kingdom by far the worst for how they treate...  more »

    The tigers are beautiful and the experience was otherworldly to break all the rules of my common sense and sit with a full grown "giant" tiger. Tigers, like any cat, are lazy during certain times of the day and more often active at night. Lions are the same in the wild which makes it so looked down upon to hunt them as there is no sport to it. These are not normal tigers as they are in early stages of domestication to the point where they are so used to seeing people since birth that they are safe to get close to. The keepers are still very wary of their movements though. Would recommend but I took a star off because the price seemed a bit steep for the country.

    The tigers are drugged and beaten when not doing as told. The babies are so drugged that some can't even lift their own paws and have plastic jugs shakes in their face when they try to sleep. The adults are so bad that they are drooling and throwing up. This place isn't humane at all. Most are kept in concrete floored, wire fenced cages in two's or fours. This place is wrong by every standard and I don't know how they are still in business. These tigers need to be freed. Bad enough they am have been through so much trauma that they probably can't even be taken back to the wild. But they at least need to go to sanctuaries. This place is disgusting.

    This place is just wrong why would people go there and say it's awesome and incredible and sooooo cool when they're beating the animals I hope they know that is animal cruelty and they're keeping them in very small cages and hey maybe just think you know they're huge animals tigers they are top of the food chain and they can shred you to pieces very easily but you see them just laying there looking like they're dead and you think that's cool people are talking about how it's so pricey for just the little that you get to see the little that you get to see are baby tigers laying there drugged. Tiger that live their life in a haze like they don't get to live a normal life as like a normal tiger would in the wild. I don't think any of the staff members there even cared about the Tigers their just laughing and having a good old time beating them to death I don't think that's funny and I don't think anyone else should think that's funny either. Just think if you were one of those tigers would you want to be drugged your whole life be in a very small cage your whole life and just hating your life but you can't do anything about it there has to be someone in the world who actually cares enough and has enough money to take those tigers out of that horrible place and put them in the wild where they belong

    It is not very far away from Chiang Mai, located a few Km from Mae Rim. Is fun to view Tigers and Tiger show, play with the cup. Yong cup is as cute as the domestic cats. Fun to take good photo of cups. I feel some kind of sadness when look into their eye. There belong in the wild forest. I hope they are been treated kindly. The restaurant here got good chef. Very good food. Like their mix sausages platter, a huge potion. From Chiang Mai you can get here by Tour, bus, red bus, motor bike, bicycle, car even Tuktuk...... Best time is get here in the morning. Buy entrance ticket, price depending on the packages. Play with the young cup, stays away from the big brother cat. You never know when there are in the bad mood... Later lunch at the restaurant choose a seat nearest to the pools. Enjoy the food and watch the cat plays. Elephants camps is near by just a few km away. Have fun.

    Listen, I understand the immense novelty and uniqueness of being able to get up close and personal with a tiger. But everyone, just ask yourselves, how is it that these places do not exist in other countries? Because the animal welfare laws here are lax and as long as these animals 'look' okay i suppose the relevant authorities turn a blind eye. Tigers need lots of space to prowl in and certainly do not naturally remain motionless for hours on end with a constant cycle of humans coming into direct contact. Use your brains, people.
