I had booked to do a 3 in 1 trip which was the floating market, Tiger Temple and the River Kwai Bridge including stopping off at the cemetry.
I had been told I would be picked up at 6:20am, at 5:40am, I got a call telling me to be ready by 6:10am....10mins makes a lot of difference at that time of the morning. Anyway the driver was in the lobby and we proceeded to pick up the other guests. The first part of the day was fine in terms of the scheduling and the floating market which was a lot of fun, after this the group split as not all was going to the tiger temple and river kwai bridge, this is when it started to go wrong. We drove on further for about an hour and had lunch, then we stopped off so people could ride the elephants which I was not aware was even on the schedule, though some of us didnt ride the elephants, he then asked if we wanted to go to the snake show....again this was not apart of the schedule, anyway, I figured I would go as it was better than waiting for the others to finish the elephant ride. Once we got to the snake show they wanted money to go in, so I just paid it and went it. By the time it finished, the van pulled up with the other passengers from the elephant ride. We then drove another hour or so to Tiger temple, spent most of the time queuing and people had to buy clothes to cover their legs or top halfs due to the monks. I had long trousers on and a shawl, the driver told me it would be ok but it wasnt so I had to buy a tiger t-shirt!! Once we got inside, you are wizzed around from 1 tiger to another whilst the staff take pictures. This was about 5-10mins, then it was time to go! The option to feed the baby cubs was not even an option. After we left the Tiger temple we went to the River Kwai bridge, where the tour guide said we had 10mins, at that point we ignored him and stayed around 20mins, we did not even see the cemetry. Spend more money and go with another tour operator.
