We visited the Tiger Temple! 🙂 It is a Monk who runs the Temple and monks live on the grounds with the tigers….happily together. There is major speculation if the Tigers are drugged cause they are asleep in the afternoons when you can go and take photos with them….but Being there and seeing the tigers I dont think they are drugged because a few of the tigers were awake and walking on their chains (sad). And then we stayed late since we were NOT on a tour and saw them release the tigers into the water for exercise time and all the tigers were awake and well ready for exercise time. So yes, I think they are just sleeping cause it is SO SO hot. But they were beautiful. I got to cuddle with that younger tiger and then the bigger tigers kept hitting me in the face with their tails haha. Watching them exercise was cool, they were fighting each other and chasing this yellow bag on a long stick that the workers were playing with them with. 🙂 It was great to watch them play. But halfway through we had to stop and put out cameras away because the Princess of Thailand came and wanted to watch the Tigers and everything, which was super cool to see her up close. But we had to put our cameras away because if you took pictures of the princess….the results would be our own fault….so for our safety…no photos at ALL.
But yes – pretty tigers 🙂 I love them!
