Me and my mum planned a 3 day stop over in Bangkok on the way to Australia and as big animal lovers decided we wanted to visit the tiger temple while we were there.. We booked a day tour where we got to visit the tiger temple and ride elephants in one day and we are so thankful we did! I read through some of the reviews before going and was quite worried about how the animals might have been treated ect but the moment we got there all those doubts were completely gone! The monks were sat playing with the tigers and you got to have loads of photos with the tigers while the staff took you round and made sure you get lots of photos! Being able to be that close with a fully grown tiger and stroking them is an experience neither of us will ever forget - and there were many English speaking staff that answered all of our questions and were very friendly! The tigers ARE NOT DRUGGED! Each tiger only spends about an hour having photos then they get swapped around.. Some of them were pacing round and one of them rolled around onto my mum when she was having her picture taken, it wanted to play but she jumped back just in time! There was also a show you could watch where the monks play with the tigers in the water and theyre so well looked after! Also it's only 1000THB for the extras and that's only £20 so it's definately worth doing!! We are definately planning to go back and spending longer there next time as we went quite late after the elephants and they were closing! Amazing day :)
