One day itenerary

by VanessanJustin

I am considering Kanchanaburi for 1-day trip from Bangkok (by bus). Interested in Tiger Temple, long boat tail River Kwai, Elephant Rides, Erawan Falls. Is it possible to do all in one day. What is the best way to get them all? Tuktuk? Pls advise. Many thanks

hi, one day to do all of this is a bit much and forget going by tuk tuk, give this a thought
private taxi for a day 3 hours or a bit less maybe to kanchanaburi, visit the Jeath museum on to the cemetary have the driver drop you off at the train station and go by train across the bridge and a further 1 hour along the death railway will bring you to tham kra sai viaduct which is great for photos the driver will meet you at tham kra sai and from there on to the tiger temple arriving early afternoon when the tigers will be out in the canyon for more photos they are put back into the cages at 4 o'clock in the afternoon then back to bkk, if you did this and set off from bkk at 06.00 you will get back at about 19.00 hrs so it aint feasable to fit anything else into the day, les

Hi,
One question in the contxt of the original post.
Let's assume that one reaches Kanchanburi the previous day afternoon, let's say at around 4 pm, and does Cemetary, Museum (in Kanchanchanburi town) and Bridge on the river Kwai on the same day. Now One is ready to start one's day early next morning.
Would it be possible to do now Tiger Temple, long boat tail River Kwai, Elephant Rides, Erawan Falls - all in one day by starting early monning. if yes, can anyone please help to plan this itinerary? are there tours that can be purchased in kanchanburi the previous day, to cover all of above attractions in a single day? Or one would have to hire a taxi?
Any inputs in this regard would be appreciated.

Hi We did all this except for the Erwan Falls but also had a 40 minute train ride on the Thai Burma railway, just fabulous. Also Bridge on River Kwai and the War Cemetery. Have a look at my Kanchanaburi pages and you will see exactly what was included, a fantastic day.
Good Luck
Mike

Travel Tips for Kanchanaburi

Riding a long tail boat

by yen_2

We visit the Bridge of the River Kwai by overlooking to it! I mean, we rented a long tail boat from the Jeath Museum and we were riding in it through the famous River Kwai. It was alot of fun though, I hate the very hot day...It's also advisable to take a ride a long tail boat from there to the River Kwai to fully see the well-knowns of the river karaoke of the locals. You can witness some very beautiful houses of the rich Thais living beside the river.

Walk with Tigers

by joyful_sun

Everyday at 3:30PM, the Monks of Wat Pa Luang Ta Ma Ha Bua bring out the tigers from their cages and let them walk around in the animal sanctuary. There is a B100 donation to get into this place. There are also other animals freely walking around, horses, cows, peacocks, goats and a hog. We were actually chased by the pig and a goat which turned out to be just following us. Seems he wanted to come home with us. Wonder why? Might he be fed to the tigers the next day? Kidding. We arrived at 1 PM, so the tigers were happily dozing off in their cages. They look well fed and healthy. All other animals roam around freely which is why you have to sign a waiver before you go inside. There is a sweet old man who guards the gate and he will happily explain and give directions in the Wat before you enter. There is a reception area outside the gate, toilet, and ample parking. To get there: travel about 30 kms from the River Kwai Bridge on Hway 323 towards Sai Yok Noi Waterfalls. the Wat is on the right side of the road with a huge sign. You'll know you're there when you see tiger statues milling around the side of the highway. Turn into the dirt road travel about 1 km or so til you reach the gate.

Long Tail Boat

by yen_2

We had managed again to take the long tail boat from the JEATH museum down to the River Kwai to see the famous and well-known Bridge. There are plenty of long tail boats near the river specially in the Bridge of the Kwai, if you like you can rent a boat to see the neighboring countryside but be sure to get the price done right before you set foot in the boat!

Tiger Temple

by fastfist

I would like to praise the great work that the Tiger Temple is doing. There is a 300 baht entrace fee all day for foreigners and the thai peolple are charge 300 baht after midday since in the morning they come to give the monestry offering such as food and money. Photos are by donation, so you can give as much or as little as you want. All donations are used to build the tigers a new home where they can roam free and buy food. All animals that have come to the temple for care have remain in the temple grounds and are feed twice a day by the temple staff. The temple is not ornate, these are forest monks and they believe in simplicity and will spend nights in the forest doing walking meditating. I applaude the Tiger Temple in their efforts to care for and save all animals not just the tigers and all by the kind donations of the visitors to the temple.

Bridge over the River Kwai

by Willettsworld

This is the main reason for coming to Kanchanaburi but I'm afraid the area is spoilt with tourist trap souvenir shops selling T-shirts and CD's, a market selling clothes and loud music - hardly a fitting memorial to all of those that died here building this bridge and the railway.

Anyway, the bridge is located some 3km north of the main town across the Kwae Yai River. Immortalised in the famous movie and novel, it was a part of the infamous Death Railway to Burma, constructed by POWs working for the Japanese in hellish conditions during World War 2. Some 16,000 POWs and 100,000 Asian workers died during the railway construction. The present iron bridge is the second wartime incarnation (a part of the wooden original can be found in the WWII Museum), but 2 central 'box-like' spans were rebuilt after the war to replace three sections destroyed by Allied bombing. You can cross the bridge on foot where the centre of the track has been thoughtfully turned into a steel-plated walkway and there are little side platforms between the spans for sightseeing and avoiding trains.
