Tiger Kingdom in Chiag Mai, Thailand

Posted on 13 July 2019 by David

Do you like cats? How about big cats? How about big cats (i.e. tigers!) that can bite your arm off or worse? If you said yes to all three you need your head checked.

After visiting this amazing place, I started to wonder if -WE- had to have our head checked. I mean, who purposely decides to go into a cage with MULTIPLE TIGERS who are free to roam about (who lick their chops as they see you come in) AND THEN proceed to hug them?

Apparently A LOT of people and you might too.

Chiang Mai, where is that?

It’s in northern Thailand, between Myanmar and Laos.

How do I get there?

You can fly to into Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX), or do the crazy thing like we did and take a 16 hour train from Bangkok.

No, I mean. How do I get to Tiger Kingdom?

You can hire a tuk-tuk and they’ll take you all the way there.  It’s about a 20 min drive from center of town.

Has anyone ever been eaten there?

(Asking the real questions here.)  As far as I have heard no but they might just be very good at hiding that.  We spent several hours at Tiger Kingdom and there were no incidents.   The big cats are very well behaved and as long as you follow the trainer instructions you’ll be fine.

How about some pictures?

The cat ate my camera.  Really.  I placed my camera on a nearby bench and one of the Tigers thought it was a toy!  It grabbed it and muched on it.
