For the sake of a good Facebook picture, I would honestly beg you not to go. Cramped living quarters. Very obviously drugged. Trainers poking them with sticks so they would look at your camera. This establishment is very clever in leading you to believe they...More

Very professionally organised; tigers were sleepy since the staff explained they are fully fed and normally sleep 18 hours a day. They all looked very healthy.

Seemed to me the tigers must have been drugged which makes sense. You pay to go sit with a tiger - big or small for fifteen minutes. They do a nice buffet or a la carte lunch here. Unless you are really into tigers I...More

We choose smallest tigers to visit. Some of the tigers little sleepy, which they warned in entrance (in afternoon). Staff is helpful. Big tigers are pretty scary, think twice before go for them :)

I hired a tuk tuk for the entire day for 500b to see other sites at the same time. I imagine a car or taxi could be cheaper than this.
