Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai, Thailand

If you were to award points out of ten for cleanliness then Tiger Kingdom in Mae Rim, Chiang Mai, Thailand would score nine out of ten. I would give the same marks for the politeness of the staff and the upkeep and beauty of the grounds. There is no wonder then that is amongst the post popular of all the animal collections in the area. It also is very high in all of the tourist attractions.

Sadly the 'beauty' is only skin deep. In spite of its claim that it is not a zoo....it most definitely is. And, as a zoo, it contributes absolutely nothing towards conservation, education or research.
