Kingdom of the tiger (Tiger Kingdom Phuket) in Phuket

Тигровое королевство Пхукета

Kingdom of the tiger (Tiger Kingdom Phuket) is a relatively new landmark on the island. In this zoo the tigers can be very close contact with these felines, from small to big, touch them, take pictures with them. Most tourists leave this place in admiration and positive impressions. But it should be borne in mind that animals are kept in cages, and all this is just a tourist attraction. You can take a picture and have a little play with animals under the supervision of the trainer, and not to communicate with them the way you want (the smallest of the cubs even forbidden to raise hands according to the rules of the Park). In addition, the communication be given very little time.

Tigers here are of different ages, contained in different cells. At the entrance to each cell the payment is made separately (prices vary, most expensive the youngest cubs), but there is a complete visit of several cells. Before you visit you will have to sign a paper where you assume all responsibility for any problems themselves, and confirm the rules. However, the rules should be read carefully, they are presented, including in Russian. The owners of the Park claim that to communicate with the tigers is absolutely safe, because they are raised in captivity and used to people.

Some tourists believe that cats here are under the influence of drugs, so they are relaxed and sleepy. But the owners of the Park claim that it's because the tigers are by nature nocturnal animals and day they're always sleepy.

The Park has a restaurant in buffet style (450 baht per person). If you have no one to ask you to take pictures with tigers, the Park provides over 500 baht your photographer. Children under 15 years are allowed in the cages with the tigers only with the permission of the Park staff. And yet, the day is long queues, long wait, so it's best to come here early in the morning.

The website and ordering transfer:

Hours: daily from 09:00 to 18:00

Entrance fee: the price depends on the age of the tigers and the selected set of services, ranging from 800 to 3,500 baht (see currency of Thailand and the exchange rate). Read more about prices on the website.

How to get there: tiger Kingdom is located in Kathu district (on the map). Getting there is not very convenient, so it is best to use absolutely free shuttles that can be booked online or by phone in the Russian language. Purchase tours with Shuttle service to travel agencies on the street is more expensive.
