Tiger Park @ Pattaya

Overview

4.4

Tiger Park @ Pattaya had only been open since January 2017 when our researchers first visited. As such, it was so new that no one even seemed to know that it existed and our researchers only found out about when talking to the taxi driver regarding tiger facilities. The park offers much the same interaction programmes as the Tiger Kingdom facilities do and in fact is so similar that it could be that they are part of the same group. It is also setup in the same professional manner complete with photos of the different tiger photo options alongside many statements against drugging, chains, the use of force and tiger trade.
