One of the longest hours of tours outskirt BKK takes 3 hours to reach plus the package prices ranging from 100 dollars and above depending which... More

Just sickening and would never ever go here again or advise family and friends to go. Nothing more than animal abuse of the beautiful tigers who were absolutely stoned. If you have any respect for wild life don't go here.

This was one of the prettier temples we toured. I would recommend it for the great artwork and multiple temple sites on the tour.

It is appalling to see these majestic animals with broken spirits, on very short chains, so inbred that there legs are malformed and obviously drugged. Shame on these so called religious humans running The Tiger Temple.

Both parts of this tour are great The only negative is now I would like more time around the river Kwai and bridge Scary and chilling of the statistics about the nationalities involved, that are available on hand at the centre From an Australians point of view this has always been of interest to see The tiger temple is great...

This package tour take you a full day , my pick up was at 6.30 and drop was at 7.30. You just roam in the park which smells all the time with maybe a 3-4min... More
