I deeply regret visiting. I thought they were a reputable place to view beautiful tigers but they are obviously heavily drugged and the tour operators and monks just can't be trusted, not when so much money is at stake. Honestly not worth having this experience...More

It is black business for wildlife. I believe it is closed by DNP and turn to be rehabilitation for poached wildlife. This is unsure info, need to be checked

Excellent trip, just a hours drive from Bangkok easy to find, very good experience. Staff are friendly / professional & explain safety procedures. Tigers are all very well looked after & Taken care of. 3rd time I've been.

The Tiger Temple is a very controversial place that is often criticised for its "commercialisation" of tigers. However, critics must realise that there is absolutely NOWHERE else for these tigers to go - their habitat throughout South East Asia has been so severely taken over...More

Nice place with a good view but not amazing !! Lot of step to walk to go upstairs. It's really nice to do and to see all of the things. Also a nice little market at the entrance.

i spent an amazing time at the tiger temple, but it only opens for specific hours every day so you have to hurry and see the tigers, also most of the tigers are sleep when they let you in and you have to approach them...More
