Tiger Temple Tours

by Rhianroderick

My Boyfriend and i want to go to the Tiger Temple from Bangkok. I wanted to know if you can recommend a tour group and rough prices that you might have paid as on the net i seem to get wildly different price ranges and i don't want to pay too much (or too little!)

The best way to go to the Tiger Temple is to get your own driver and go by yourselves it is much cheaper and there is no hassles with picking up other people from their hotels if you're on a tour group.We went as a family of 4 and had the driver for the whole day and he took us elsewhere and we paid him AUD $80-00 maybe too much but still cheaper than a tour and much more comfortable in a taxi.

Why not spend a couple of days in the nice city of Kanchanaburi. Visit the historic Bridge on the River Kwai, the War Cemetary with headstones for 7000 allied soldiers who died during the building of the Death Railway during World War II, visit the Hellfire Pass Museum, take a ride on the railway and enjoy the beautiful landscapes along the river, have a longtail boat trip on the river. In the evening take a stroll by the river promenade and enjoy a wonderful (and cheap) meal at one of the restaurants and at the same time be watching the party rafts with their lights sailing up and down with happy people. Later in the evening visit the night market by the railway station and watch the locals - and make a good bargain yourself.

For the Tiger Temple you might contact one of the local tour agencies like 'Good Times Travel' who has daily trips to the temple.

Several nice and cheap hotels and/or guesthouses. Have a look at this link for further info about this nice and quiet provincial city: http://www.kanchanaburi-info.com/en/index.html

Re: Tiger Temple Tours

When I went to tiger temple I hired a guide/driver that made Saduak Floating Market, Kanchanaburi, River Kwai, Cementery, Elephant Ride and Tiger Temple in time to feed and hold the babies. the guide is Tong, very well recomended in many foruns (VT, Lonely Planet, Trip Advisors etc) and if I remember she charged us around 4000bht for a full day including gas. We started at 7:00am until 9:00pm.
you can take her contact at my Bangkok page.

Travel Tips for Kanchanaburi

Peaceful

by yen_2

Usually, the friends that had gone there, they like Kanchanaburi for soul renewal and a peaceful retreat away from the hassle and bustle of the chaoitic city or from the place where they come from. I've seen this place very nice for just waiting for the sun to go down and just listening for the birds singing...specialy if you stayed in this river houses..They are very pretty to look at though..

PHRA PATHOM CHEDI

by LysDor

This is the World's tallest Buddhist monument and is located about 58 kms by road from Bangkok.

The 380-foot-chedi dominates the provincial capital of Nakhon Pathom and marks the spot where, it is believed, Buddhism was introduced to the Thailand-to-be more than 2,000 years ago.

This stupa appeared first in this land before any others. (Pathom means first) It is the largest pagoda in the world.

Bridge over River Kwai

by Myndo

Here is the bridge that stood model for the roman of Pierre Boulle with the same name.
Kanchanaburi is sometimes also called Kan or Kanburi and is visited by Thai and foreigners as well. The area is like a close retreat for the people of Bangkok, Japanese and others come to see the war museums and the historical places.

Most things you will need as a visitor you can find in the area south of the Bridge at the roads parallel to the River. Guest houses, hotels, bars, restaurants etc.

The bridge itself was smaller than I expected. The old parts are the round bows, the parts that have been destroyed in the war and rebuilt are square.

War Museum

by yellowstar

Although the history of the bridge over River Kwai is very interesting, this museum isn't. It is supposed to visualise the bridge's history, but it's so cheaply made that it didn't impress me at all.
Still, there is a little room on the first floor showing all Ms Thailands of the past. Not too bad although it has nothing to do with the river kwai.... (except that they elect Ms Thailand here every year)
