    A friend of mine was there last month and said it was terrible. He pre-paid for the trip through his hotel, and really regrets having supported such a tourist trap.

    I'd suggest you read the reviews on TripAdvisor. Oddly, they're split 50/50 - half the people are thrilled for the chance to play with a baby tiger and take photos, and the other half who take a critical look at how the Tiger Temple is operated are disgusted by it.
