Tiger Temple Thailand

There aren’t many places in the world where you can touch a fully-grown tiger, but the monks at Thailand’s Tiger Temple allow you to get up close and personal with their big Tiger cats
Just a couple of hours’ drive outside Bangkok in the Kanchanaburi province, not far from the world famous Bridge Over The River Kwai, lies the Tiger Temple of Thailand, formally known as Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yannasampanno. Since 1999, the monks here have taken care of tigers which have been rescued from poachers in the nearby Thai-Burmese border jungle - and to date they have 17 fully grown tigers and tiger cubs living within the temple grounds. Every afternoon, the tigers are let out of their cages and taken down to a quarry which has a natural pool for them to bathe and play in. Visitors can walk down into the quarry and see the tigers from only a few feet away - there’s a single rope between you and them. Most of the tigers simply sit stretched out in the sun - they are nocturnal creatures so they laze around during the day. Some of the younger tigers are pretty frisky. Some of these tigers are huge, and to be in such close proximity to them is both awe-inspiring and a little scary. Their beauty is mesmerizing though. You can walk with them on their root to the canyon and have your pictures taken walking beside the large Tigers. Once in the canyon you will be invited to walk amongst them and have your picture taken right next to them. You can also have a fully grown Tiger lay next to you and put its head in your lap for a very thrilling photo. This trip is a must do and can be combined with a stop at the Floating Market, Bridge over the river Kwai, the Hellfire Pass Cemetery and Museum. see tour TT5 Floating Market, Tiger Temple, Hellfire Pass
