The Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai is a cool place to visit if you are interested in Tigers, like me. I have always been fascinated by these majestic creatures. At the Tiger Kingdom, the tigers seems to be in great health. Many people think they are drugged to keep them sleepy and safe for people to be around, but I didn’t see any evidence of that. While the tigers do sleep a lot, they were definitely awake most of the time I was there. When you see such a large animal only a foot or two away from you decide to stare you down, you feel like pissing yourself. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed the experience of being around the tigers and getting to pet them. Most, if not all, of the tigers at the Tiger Kingdom are raised there and interact with humans from a very young age. You may notice they are very well fed too.
