Tiger Zoo and Aquarium on Koh Samui are a definite must-see, especially for all Tiger fans. It is situated on Ban Harn beach, and only a few minutes ride from Lamai Beach and Chaweng beach.

If you are looking for a day trip out with the family then we can not rate  Tiger Zoo and Aquarium more highly

Tigers are a massive part of Thailand Heritage and are revered throughout the land.

The Indochinese tiger, also called Corbett’s tiger, is found in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, China, Burma, and Vietnam.

These tigers are a little smaller and darker than Bengal tigers.

Males can weigh from 150–195 kg, while females are smaller at 100–130 kg. They love to roam the rainforests in mountainous or hilly regions.

In the last century, they were hunted to almost extinction by foreign traders.

The tiger has really been abused, according to government estimates of national populations. The subspecies numbers around a total of 350 individuals is really quite pitiful.

The existing populations are also at a very high risk from poaching. They are at risk from prey depletion and as a result of this barbaric poaching. Also their primary prey such as deer and wild pigs have also been decimated -again by man.

Unfortunately, much of their habitat has been broken up along coupled with the inbreeding, which is due to lack of tigers finding mates, what chance do they have?

There have been many sanctuaries in Thailand set up to help the tiger survive, and here on Koh Samui things are no different.

The Tiger is one of the most beautiful animals on the planet; regardless of the dangers of handling such beast’s people simply love them.

Tiger Zoo and Aquarium, you can also find Leopards too, is set up to take care of some of these beautiful animals.

All the animals are expertly trained by experienced local Thai handlers in Koh Samui. So come and see for yourself and enjoy watching these magnificent animals, as they play and relax in their natural surroundings.

Tigers and Leopards are two of nature’s most feared predators. And as a special experience, twice a day a show is put on to demonstrate the skills of the highly trained animals at Samui Tiger Zoo. There are also shows that include birds, otters, sea lions and too.

Also after the show, there will be the opportunity to actually get in a cage and have your picture taken beside one of these incredible tigers.

And if you are even luckier and you are there at a certain time of year, you could get a picture taken with a baby tiger.
