absolutely beautiful animals it was great to get so close to them. The majority of tigers roam freely and have large spacious living areas however some other big cats have quite small homes and some appear to be unhappy or distressed
Wonderful winter wonderland, very commercial but very nice to see so many lights, wooden shops with snow covered roof tops, snow dogs and if course the [short] party/rave in the central area. You can spend a night here and then go up the mountain (hike or snow mobile) and then down the other side to Snow Valley (very similar but nowhere near as big).
Somewhat underwhelming but interesting to see tigers up close. The bus ride is typical/once the people who bought scraps of meat to feed tigers start getting up and moving around, you end up seeing much of it through the lense of someone else's camera so easier to just join in and barge your way through if you want to get good views. The place seems somewhat worn, like it's seen better days. Some tigers seemed anxious, pacing around in their cages. Not sure how I felt about that. They looked healthy enough - maybe fatter than expected actually, but that could be winter fat. I only saw one white tiger, right at the very end.
straight out of a fairy tale ❄️✨
