Climb the 309 steps up to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, a sacred Buddhist temple set on top of a mountain overlooking Chiang Mai. Take in extensive views of the city below before admiring the impressive artistry of the temple's main buildings and decorative flourishes. Said to have been established in the late 14th century, this well-maintained place of worship remains the subject of many myths and legends, with the truth of its construction and development still a mystery. The evocative design and enigmatic heritage create a powerful atmosphere in the secluded mountaintop location. If you'd rather skip the stairs, take advantage of the efficient tram service.

We visited on a Saturday and the whole area was very busy , possibly during the week it would be quieter nevertheless we enjoyed our visit , the walk up the 300 odd steps is quite easy but is punctuat... more »
乗り合いソンテウでニマンヘン近辺から約３０分。 ８人ほど集めるのを待ち（約１０分ほど）、往復一人当たり100THBでした。 片道ずつ買ったほうがいいという口コミもありましたが、ドイステープの下あたりでたくさんのソンテウが待っており、ほとんど往復買いのゲスト待ち。 きちんと約束の１時間半、待っていてくれました。 階段もそこまできつくなく、景色もとてもよかったです。 もう一度行くかというと微妙ですが、... more »30 minutes from nimmanhaeminda near shared sǎwngthǎew. Was 100 THB per person round trip (about 10 minutes), and waiting to collect the eight or so. Better by way of Word of mouth, but at bottom of DOI suthep sǎwngthǎew lot is waiting the little guest waiting to buy. Properly appointed hour and a half, waiting for me. Stairs are not tight up there, great views. This is the place you want to visit at least once to go to Chiang Mai is subtle and so it goes again.
저녁에 방문하는 것을 강력하게 추천함!! 야경이 아름답다고 해서, 해가 지기 1시간 정도 전에 도착해서 미리 둘러보다가 해가 지기를 기다렸음. 해 지기 전의 모습도 좋았지만, 해 진 후의 사원이 너무 아름다웠음. 오후 6시가 되면 종을 울리고 스님들이 사원 꼭대기로 와서 기도를 하는데 그 모습도 장엄하니 좋았음. more »In the evening, we strongly recommend to visit the ship!! The night is beautiful, the Sun is about one hour before arrival be look around the year beforehand to be waited. The former appeared to be good, but after temples so beautiful. 6:00 pm when the bell rings to the top of the temple and the monks to prayer appeared in the magnificence that was good.
Really nice must do. Have amazing view of not clouded or raining. Very reasonable entry fee (50) and the vibe is chilled. There is even a yoga meditation center if you follow the arrows. Spent a few minutes in their and felt very laid back after. Recommend doing by scooter! Really nice drive.
A 15km winding mountain drive to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and the 300 intricately carved mythical Naga Serpent steps leads to near the top of the“Doi Suthep/Mount Suthep". Included in our tour was the cable car ride and before seeing the pagodas, statues, murals, bells, a museum and shrines, we were reminded on appropriate dressing and removing footwear. So, I wrapped the scarf I always carry while travelling around my waist and walked into the temple - a must see iconic tourist destination, built as a Buddhist monastery in 1383 and is still a working monastery till today. This site is well maintained, the entrance fee is reasonable and "Lo And Behold" the Chiang Mai view/mountain scenery. The golden spire which decorates the centre of temple was the first sight, next the Emerald Buddha beautiful copy statue whereas the real statue I have seen in Bangkok as well. Outside this area there's the shrine to the White Elephant, the story on how the temple was founded and the world’s largest gongs, lines of bells and orchids are within the wide walkway.
Climbing the steps up to Doi Suthep is a must when visiting Chiang Mai. It can be very crowded especially at weekends and of course Buddhist holidays but even then the atmosphere here is still very peaceful and calm. Spectacular view over the beautiful City oft Chiang Mai if not to hazy. Feels and looks almost like a pagoda in neighbouring Myanmar.
Worth visiting when you are in Chiang Mai. You need to pay 50 baht/person for a cable car ride to the temple, which at the top of a hill. You can also enjoy Chiang Mai city from here. It has many Buddha Statues from different styles as well as to learn the Buddhist journey before He born till he died. You pay respect to the Pagoda by a three times clockwise walking rounds it.
Other reviews cover a lot of detail. For those who can't manage the stairs, take the enclosed cable car. It's in the building behind the ATM signs. Remember to abide by the dress code.
