Food in the restaurant is great. But the whole thing is just terrible, animals do suffer here! Tigers are prevented from their natural behaviour, they live in cages and are completely passive. Just think how is it possible to take selfies with one of the...More

The staff were absolutely incredible. Very kind. The tigers were very well taken care of and healthy. They loved to play with their trainers and were very active. They were all in their natural environment inside of the sanctuary. The trainers were very knowledgeable and...More

We had read so many reviews on how the tigers are treated terrible in Thailand. Several people told us to steer clear, that we were just paying to see drugged animals. These accusations could not be more false. There was absolutely no evidence that the...More

quiet, peaceful place full of slumbering tigers; get pix with tigers are reasonable price or pay minimal fee (<10$US) to just walk around. clean and well-cared for animals including 2 new-born kittens in JUN 2017. Recommend for families. Alternate: go for lunch and view the...More

It is a incredible experience in this trip. Touch and take a picture with tiger together. Really exciting and scary a little. But tiger is in the small cage it looks poor.

After reading very mixed reviews about them being drugged and not drugged, I still wanted to stroke a tiger so off we went! Took about 30 minutes to get there from Chiang Mai in a Songthaew (red bus), he waited for us and drove us...More

For such majestic beasts these cages were far too small. For photos I was told to hold the tail which not even my own kitten allows me to do- so humiliating for the tiger. After the photos the zoo keeps began prodding and taunting them...More

Was a bit skeptical to do this visit but my wife wanted to so I wine along! I ended up liking it more than her! These animals are so big and move around while you are in their large cage! Highly recommend!

For those of us who have always wanted to pet a tiger,this is the place. It was amazing,fun,and a bit scary at the same time.I would definitely do it. It's a very unique opportunity. I also felt the tigers were treated well.

Yeah, actually, I can! The best two options are 1) rent a motorbike for a day or 2) take a red car or songthaew from the Chang Pueak bus station. Ask for "Mae Rim Tiger Kingdom", the red car will stop at the junction just... More

Are tigers drugged at Tiget Kingdom? Chang Mai?

I volunteered at Tiger Kingdom, twice. Once three years ago, and again this year. The tigers are not drugged, this is a rumour, and they are not abused. They're born in captivity and hand raised by people, this is why... More

You don't need a reservation, I recommend going in the morning when they just open if you want to avoid crowds.
