A trip to the tiger temple can normally arranged from the hotel or guesthouse that you are staying at. But if you are feeling a bit more adventurous, then you can rent a bike and drive down to the tiger temple. The temple is located about 40km from the Kanchanaburi town, so the drive would take about an hour or so. The directions are pretty easy to follow..
Just check out the route map provided by the official tiger temple website. The best time to visit the place is around 12:30 to 3:00pm. At around 1pm the monks take out the tigers to the canyon for their daily walk and 'exercise'. So that's the perfect time to get upclose and personal with the tigers
