Tiger temple and River Kwai, Bangkok Thailand
When i posted Maeklong Railway market, few bloggers said this place look scary. Let me tell you this place i going to post here even more scary, see Desmond sitting on a tiger !!
About 3 hours from Bangkok by road (depending on traffic snarls) the Tiger Temple was an eye opener. It wasn't really a temple at all, but more a wildlife park with Buddhist Monks and lots of animals. There were deer, wild boar and other animals roaming the large enclosed land. They have about 90+ tigers in this temple.
Our tour guide brought us there around 1pm as this is the time that visitors are allowed to walk with tiger.
Waiting for the walk..
Each one of us got a chance to hold the chain and walk with tiger, that was awesome!
tiger just pee in front of us, hahaha..
This place is for you to take picture with tigers...
My son Desmond look small if compare with this big tiger..this tiger must be complaint who is disturbing him for a afternoon nap, hehehehe..
If you want to take bath with tigers, just pay little extra money.
This place is worth to pay a visit, I really doubt you could get this any where else in the world. I know there are other places you can get close to tigers but not like this, so close and we even can touch the tiger..Actually is quite safe here, their well trained staffs will follow you all the time..
On the way back to Bangkok city after Tiger temple, we stopped by River Kwai.
Our tour guide told us the history of River Kwai
