Mama said “Don’t Do Anything Stupid”
Before we started our big trip, Ryan’s mom told us “Don’t do anything stupid”… Maybe cuddleling Tigers is a stupid thing to do, but we loved it… Besides, where else in the world you get to do this?
Ryan was getting frustrated, because we didn’t know what to do that day, we woke up late, we had lunch and it was almost 3pm and we hadn’t done anything. I took the lead and decided to go to Tiger Kingdom. We got a Tuk tuk for 140 Bath ($5) best deal ever and 45 minutes later we were there. I read on trip advisor that the best times to go were either early in the morning or after 4pm.
I was first; I got to touch and play with about 3 baby tigers for 10 minutes, which with my charming ways, I transformed into about 15 minutes! I had to wash my hands and arms to make sure I didn’t contaminate the babies.
We spent some extra money to get the professional photographer to do the pictures, because they don’t let another person get in the cage with you.
Later, it was Ryan’s turn. He got into the big Tiger’s cage. I could see Ryan’s face turning red; it is impossible not to get scared when you are right next to this animal, but we had to do it.
As a bonus, you get to walk around the other cages and see all the tigers play with each other and in the water. It was an awesome experience.
