On this page I will describe the two very different tiger encounters that you can have when you travel to the Tiger Temple with me.
The first and well known program is the
The second program, reserved for only a few people each day
is the very special
Frequently my clients choose to go to a nearby elephant camp after the morning experience. CLICK HERE to view details from the elephant camps that I am associated with.
Please note that the cost of my private day tour from Bangkok to the Tiger Temple and also to local Elephant parks is quite inexpensive. Call or email us for the exact price and details because the price changes up and down depending on the dollar / baht exchange rate and other factors such as transport costs and admissions etc.
12:30 p.m. We arrive at the Temple and enter the Temple grounds. As you enter you will notice many animals roaming free inside the walled temple grounds. Water buffalo, horses, pigs, deer and other animals have been given refuge at the temple, not only tigers.
1:00 p.m.The monks walk with us from the upper meeting area down into the viewing valley. Here the tigers are placed into their assigned locations and then lay or sit there under the watchful eye of their individual keeper.
For the next 2 hours the temple staff walks individuals amongst the tigers. There you have the chance to sit, kneel or stand near several different tigers as the staff member uses your camera to take some photos of you. There is usually time for you to walk through this experience a couple times, just depending on how many people show up that afternoon.
2:00 p.m.We leave the Tiger Temple and return to Bangkok or some other location. This ends an encounter experience with tigers that it isn't possible to have anywhere else in the world. You will not be disappointed.
