  • A trip up Doi (Mountain) Suthep is a very hard drive but has some beautiful views along the way. However when you arrive at the top it is a collection of the usual market stalls that you get everywher...  more »
  • Nature on this mountain is very beautiful, and definitely worth a walk. Most tourists come only for the temples, so there is very busy.

  • Very beautiful!! The monks gave us a bracelet, the views at the top were amazing and there is a big market nearby where you can buy food and souvenirs for a good price. I recommend you to rent a motorbike (or bicycle if you are feeling brave and adventurous) to take you to the top, taxis are also available, but make sure to get a good price sine it really isn't that far.
  • The car journey up the mountain is an interesting one. The roads are fine but the hills have a good gradient on them. Make sure that you stop off along the way up to take in the views of the whole of Chiang Mai as they are breathtaking. Once at the bottom of the steps to the temple, brace yourself as the steps get a little steeper and wider. The walk up is worth it as the spiritual feeling you get as you walk through the doors is amazing. Make sure that you take your shoes off and walking around the temple barefoot as a sign of respect and to keep the temple dirt free. You can see a monk and be blessed by them. Lots of people take gifts or if you don't have a physical gift then you can always leave money as a gesture for them. The temple is very peaceful and people are respectful of this. If you are in Chiang Mai then this is a must visit!
  • Really nice place. Please dont cheat with the entrance fee (only for foreigners). It's a beautiful place and costs not so much. 30 TBH p.p. for a tourist is no big deal. Maybe take a little towel with you. You have to take of your shoes and after a long rain you can dry your feet.
  • The stunning gold Stupa or Pagoda is amazingly beautiful and worth travelling to near the top of the mountain for. Visit it in day or night and if you're lucky you'll see the monks in their natural habitat for a truly magical and surreal experience.
  • The Doi Suthep national park is incredible. The wat is very nice but too touristy. There are better wats in the city with a fraction of the tourist
