  • After reading very mixed reviews about them being drugged and not drugged, I still wanted to stroke a tiger so off we went! Took about 30 minutes to get there from Chiang Mai in a Songthaew (red bus),...  more »
  • For such majestic beasts these cages were far too small. For photos I was told to hold the tail which not even my own kitten allows me to do- so humiliating for the tiger. After the photos the zoo kee...  more »

  • 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.
  • its very very good. the food looks so scrumptious that its making my tummy growl. but i can believe it they let you play with the baby tigers and will pretty much kiss them. its so funny and cool.
  • If you like tigers you should not support this place. The animals are drugged so they'll act subdued and calm. There is no way a wild animal would allow hundreds of tourists touch them hug them all day, every day without getting mauled. Just think!
  • While I love animals, especially felines, I can't say that I was extremely pleased here. It was for sure a once in a lifetime opportunity to see tigers and baby lions up close, but this is not their natural habitat. They are biologically hunters and need at least 100x more space for the number of animals here to run around and exercise. Some tigers look like they were getting beat up by other tigers which might be why they were separated in cages when we saw them. I wouldn't say they are drugged, but the bigger cats are more calm than the younger ones (just like every other species). They are mostly human raised and I almost cried upon arrival seeing how scared they were of the bamboo sticks that staff uses to control their behavior. They don't hit hard (especially for their size), but the big cats are definitely scared of small bamboo sticks for a reason. It's sad. But like I said, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a tiger up close and see how this place runs things. A good handful of these same tigers that were wincing at bamboo sticks were also playing with staff allowing them to rub their giant tummies looking all too happy to do so. I wish they would utilize the open space of land around them to at least allow them more room to roam. These tigers probably can't just beer released into the wild as they are too close to human and human behavior, but hopefully, one day in the near future, they will find themselves at a large tiger sanctuary.
  • You have to be really oblivious to think that the tigers are well kept here. You truly believe TIGERS can be roaming around with that many new visitors each day? Do abit of research it is not hard to find proof that these animals are indeed mistreated and part of the illegal trade in china. If you support animal cruelty, then please by all means go here. But do not act like these tigers are well kept. THEY ARE NOT You're lifetime photo op contributes to a lifetime of suffering. DO YOUR RESEARCH AND EDUCATE YOURSELF BEFORE DECIDING TO GO.
