What a great tour this was. Gentle giants of the jungle, obviously because of poaching, they are kept in captivity and bred to keep the line pure. Apprehensive at first as we had to sign a form saying that if anything happened they were in no way at fault. So glad we did this.

Visited 15th October 2014 with husband and 15 year old daughter. Did our research first so knew what to wear etc but were really apprehensive given all the bad press. Would have liked to go to morning session but wanted to visit floating market and river Kwai same day so had to go for afternoon session to fit it all... More

This is by far the best experience one can have if tigers fascinate you and you always wanted an up close n personal interaction with the wild beauties. One tip: Although a bit expensive, go for the breakfast with the monks tour. Its well worth it. The itinerary and our experience is as below: 05:00am Our friendly guide picked us... More

Dry no water no grass, the tigers we saw looked drugged...appalling conditions. I get that Thai standards do not match Australian standards but supporting something like this perpetuates and encorages this type of cruelty. This would be shut down in most countries in the world

I have to start off my review by stating that some of these reviews are completely unfair. There is a reason why monks are involved with this temple and the reason being, the tigers. If anyone knew anything about monks and what they stand for i'm sure their opinion would change...i spent a lot of time with local people during... More

We were there 2013. If it hasn't dramatically changed since then I would urge everyone to stay away from that horrible place. The tigers looked drugged, chained out in the sun all day without any possibility of shade. The few ones that were actually awake kept wandering back and forth, a clear sign of a stressed animal. It was also... More

We really looked forward to this visit. The area was not well kept and th ebl;ack bear enclosure had no water when we visited. I think that the atrraction has become very commercial. The tiger experience was great.

The animals are not well looked after. They were drugged and laid out in the heat for tourist to pet, terrible treatment and abuse of animals. Avoid at all cost

I visited Tiger temple with my wife and 2 boys. Frankly, it wasn't a great experience as the place is not at all maintained. Apart from the entrance ticket, you need to pay separately for all the other activities such as feeding the cubs, watching the tiger playing, feeding the bears and so on...The most important thing to note is...

It's not worth it. The amount of time you spend to get there from Bangkok is around 3 hours later. Then it's practically a ripoff by showing tigers. Do not recommend as a tourist attraction
