Tiger Temple, Bangkok
Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yanasampanno Forest Monastery (Tiger Temple),
This is a must see if you are in Thailand. You can pat the tigers and take photos up close too. There are a few tips when you are in close proximity with the tigers. No loud noises and never turn your back on a tiger! It look like the tiger understand what the monk is saying as they just lay down and relax and let every tourist who dare touch them.
There are many people there waiting to pat the tiger so be patience and wait for your turn.
If you want to come here for meditation do call the number below for more details.
If you're anywhere in Bangkok and you like tigers then you should visit the Tiger Temple!! It's a little way from Bangkok but it's really worth the visit! We paid a driver 1200 baht to take us there from Kanchanaburi (it may be too much but I would have paid more to get there) and the 300 baht entry fee. Once you are inside you can go in and pat the tigers as many times as you like!! And the people working there use your camera to take photos (really good ones too!). The Tiger Temple was the highlight of our whole honeymoon trip for me... :)

Here at the tiger temple you will find wild tigers that have been brought up and cared for by the local monks It really a wonderful experience with the big CATs. The entrance fee is just only 300 Baht and you can have unlimited photo taking with the CATs. The keeper will bring you into the area and they will take the photo for you. You will go around different tigers to get different post. It about 10 photos taken for each round. You also can have special photo with one of these majestic beasts (extra 1000Baht as donation) which you can hold the tiger in your lap. But it only available when the tiger is sleeping or dreaming i guess. I've miissed the opportunity to take them as he was awake during my visit. It start at 1 pm - 4 pm. When 4pm, the monk (Chan) will walk to tigers back to the temple. You can have the change to join the walk too. If you likes tigers, make sure you have enough time to spent during your visit at Tiger Temple. I will definitely be back for my tigers when the construction New Home project completed.
