Chiang Mai’s Tiger Kingdom is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to interact with adolescent tigers and baby cubs.  You can do every thing from bottle-feeding the baby tigers to bravely posing with and petting the big guys.  A couple hours here will stick with you forever, and knowing that the tigers at Chiang Mai’s Tiger Kingdom are treated with great care will help to give you peace of mind.  The tigers are not sedated like at other tiger places in Thailand and the facilities are extremely clean.  The Tiger Kingdom assigns professional staff with each group of visitors to ensure everything goes smoothly and comfortably.  Did we mention you can also hire your own on-site photographer so you can focus on the fun instead of your camera?  If playing with tigers is on your bucket list, Tiger Kingdom is the best place we’ve found to do it.

Location: 10 km North of Chiang Mai.  Just past Mae Rim where Hwy 107 meets County Road 1096 (every driver knows where it is, but we detail it below).  They also have a second location in Phuket near Patong Beach which is just as good.  

Hours: Daily 9am-6pm.  You should assume that it will take between 2 1/2-4 hours for a visit.
