Hi guys, I was wondering if I can have your opinion on the tiger temple in Kanchanburi in Thailand.
I will be going to Thailand in January next year and wanted to know if the temple was worth going to.
And if their are any other great places you recommend please share with me.

I hear from this temple and think that is interesting. Why not, i think that is not commercial and the tigers havent a bad life. It is a kind how can liv humans and animals together scratch

From Wikipedia :
Criticism and reports on animal abuse.
It is claimed that the Tiger Temple's philosophy for animal conservation is flawed and involves malnutrition, physical abuse, horrible living conditions, and use of sedatives to calm tigers.[2] Care for the Wild International claimed that based on information collected between 2005 and 2008 the Tiger Temple is involved in clandestine exchange of tigers with the owner of a tiger farm in Laos contravening the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species and national laws of Thailand and Laos. It claimed it operates as a tiger breeding facility without having a respective license as required under the Thai Wild Animals Reservation and Protection Act of 1992.[3]

Since the report by Care for the Wild International, a coalition of 39 prominent conservation groups, including the Humane Society International, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the World Society for the Protection of Animals and the World Wide Fund for Nature, have penned a letter to the Director General of National Parks in Thailand under the name 'The International Tiger Coalition'.[4] This letter urges the Director General to take action against the Tiger Temple over its import and export of 12 tigers with Laos, its lack of connection with accredited conservation breeding programmes, and to genetically test the tigers at the Tiger Temple in order to determine their pedigree and value to tiger conservation programmes. It concludes that the 'Temple does not have the facilities, the skills, the relationships with accredited zoos, or even the desire to manage its tigers in an appropriate fashion. Instead, it is motivated both in display of the tigers to tourists and in its illegal trading of tigers purely by profit.'

Here in Copenhagen Zoo, the tigers killed a young man a few weeks ago.
Somehow he had climbed into their enclosure during night and was found dead in the morning.
It was reported that the tigers "had played with him", - tigeres are NOT pets .

I have my doubts for places like the Tiger temple... I wish it was different, but....

By the way, don't they drug the animals to make them calm so that visitors can take photos with them?

That's what I heard, but an Australian vet named Chris Brown,
went over and said that the tigers are calm because of their early human contact from birth and
what time of the day visitors are actually allowed up close to the tigers.
The time of the day is after they have a feed and have exercised so they are more relaxed and just want to chill out.
