I've updated my journal for those that might be interested in our adventures in Thailand.
Day 11 - Free Day we decided to go to Tiger Kingdom. Great experience for us, not so sure for tigers. Must be difficult having humans petting and making over you all day and not being able to roam free. They are magnificent animals!!!
Dave & I had "Uncle Wang" drive us in his toktok to Tiger Kingdom.
