Thailand’s Tiger Temple is the place where you can meet some friendly tigers, shake hands, pet them or rub their bellies. 2 hours drive from Bangkok in the Kanchanaburi province, the Tiger Temple has been taking care of tigers singe 1999. Monks are taken care of the animals rescued from poachers, having around 17 fully grown tigers and cubs housed within the temple grounds.
I wonder what their accidental attack rate is. As gentle as these guys look, I know they're still wild animals, and wild animals are unpredictable.
Still, given the chance? I'd do it in a heartbeat. (But I'd be sure I had traveler's health insurance.)
