I visited here in 2012 and was in love with the place. the tour guide then was full of knowledge and could answer anything, the tigers all looked well and seemed very happy. So I returned here end of March 2015 with my teenage sons I was so looking forward to it. Well it was disgusting it stank the tigers... More

Getting to tiger temple is tiresome. It will take a whole day. It is approximately 200kms from Bangkok and takes you 2.5 hrs to reach. On the way you can visit river Kwai and the floating market. They charged us 600bhat per person and be careful of what you wear. Some clothes are prohibited to wear and no perfumes allowed.... More

# you can get close to a tiger - really close. # Go early, so you will have time in hand # take lots of lots of picture - this is something others will be envy

It is Buddhist Monastery which houses around a dozen tigers . This place gives you a chance to get close to the tigers touch them and take a few photographs . For tourists definitely it is a unique but I am not sure how comfortable the animals are !! If you really want to spend some good time here then... More

This was the best day, ever. Paws down. I struggle to see how people give this a bad review - obviously they are actively seeking to be negative. In saying that, we chose to go early in the morning, when the tigers were still playful and a lot of fun. I would suggest that this is the best time to... More

Overall on face of it a good place to visit , spend a day , take pictures with tigers , see them close. Well the other side is that you can acutally take a picture with the tiger also in Nong Nooch village , and also feed a cub in Safari World , and at both places by paying much... More

We visited Tiger Temple last week though we were a little unsure aboutI visiting there due to negative reviews. From the minute we arrived and experienced the handing of alms to the Buddhit monks that live at the temple and take in the abandoned and orphaned Tigers and other animal, this was the start of an amazing experience. We handled... More

First things first, it's about 250 kms from BKK, so need around 3-4 hours to reach this place, so plan in advance if you need to do this. It's open only during selected hours of the day, so plan accordingly. The feel of sitting close to the Beast itself is amazing and gives you the thrill, the staff are well... More

For those who visit in the afternoon and claim the tigers "appear drugged" should reconsider their review after visiting in the morning when it is cooler and VERY apparent these animals are not in any way drugged. My daughter and I can certainly attest to this especially after playing a vigorous game of tug of war with the 9 month... More

The images on the tours site paint a false picture. The tigers being chained and dragged brought tears in my eyes. Would not recommend it to any human being. Feel sorry for the tigers
