Bangkok Travel Guide

Tiger Temple

Tiger Temple

A once in a (possibly short) lifetime chance to pet tigers can be arranged from the travel agencies in Khaosan in Bangkok or from nearby Kanchanaburi. Visitors are guided to a large dirt quarry where several grown tigers and a host of cubs lie relaxing along with several monks and guides. Visitors, separated by a thin single chain, are led past, one at a time, to sit with and pet the tigers. Rumour has it that the tigers are given sedatives although some argue they are under the meditational spell of the monks or just used to humans. None of it is apparently enough to guarantee safety as an occasional mauling has been known to happen, however the experience is definitely unforgettable.


Address: Saiyok District, Kanchanaburi
Website: www.tigertemple.org
Opening Time: Daily, 9am-4:30pm.
Admission: Between THB 600 and THB 5,000, depending on the programme.
