Tiger Kingdom – Chiang Mai


The Tiger Kingdom is one of only two such ventures in the whole of Thailand that allows visitors an “up close & personal” experience with the tigers, allowing them to play, stroke & take photos in the tigers enclosure.

Even if you did not want to get up close to the tigers it is still a nice spot to have a bit of lunch and watch the tigers play in their enclosures.  A buffet lunch is served at the Tiger Kingdom from 11.30am-14.30pm daily (200 baht / person).

Entrance to Tiger Kingdom is free but if you want to get in the enclosures with the tigers then these are your options:

  • Small Tigers ages 2-5 months 520 baht (10 minutes in building)
  • Medium Tigers ages 6-9 months 420 baht (15 minutes in enclosure)
  • Big Tigers 10-20 months 420 baht (15 minutes in enclosure)

NOTE: Cubs and small tigers are the most active and playful so worth the extra cost.

You can take your own photography whilst interacting with the tigers, or for an additional fee (300 baht) a photographer will take 50-100 pictures for you with his camera.  Photos are supplied immediately afterwards on a CD.

    We actually rode a scooter out to the Tiger Temple from the city. Pleasant enough ride with little traffic and easy to find. It is worth noting that the Tiger Temple is also just a short distance from the Ma Sae elephant farm which we did later the same day.

    We arrived at the temple about 10am which was perfect as the tigers weren’t sleepy from their feed. Played with the cubs which was awesome. We had all 3 cubs jumping all over us. We hired the photographer which was also good as we got lots of photos.

    All in all an unforgettable experience.

    We played with the cubs also. Sooo cute and playful. It was certainly worth paying the little extra for the experience.
