    Wat Phra That Doi Suthep
    Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
    For this tour we wake up and leave early in the morning at 05:00 - 05:10 am. and drive up into the mountains to visit the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple ( A Chiang Mai Land-mark.) We highly recommend visiting this famous temple at dawn. The temple is quiet and the monks are just chanting, rousing and going out to receive alms offerings. Without any crowds you can enjoy the magical morning light and incredible views in serenity. It is the beginning to a great and wonderful day. Doi Suthep temple is located on the peak of the Doi Suthep Mountains and is the most famous landmark in Chiang Mai. They say you have not truly been to Chiang Mai if you have not visited this temple ! At the top of the temple you can view the pagoda shining with real gold, and a viewing platform offers panoramic views of the whole Chiang Mai City – take in the wonderful countryside landscape while the sun rises behind the city and mountains. The morning sky and view could be immortalized in a beautiful painting ! Morning life at the temple is unforgettable -the sound of temple bells, monks chanting and the fascinating view of Chiang Mai will fill your heart. Don’t leave Chiang Mai without this impression.!!! Before we continue to the other sites, we will have a nice and original taste of famous and delicious Chiang Mai food. ( Khoi Soy or Thai local breakfast sticky rice and Local Thai KFC. ) After sunrise. we will drop by at the hidden jungle temple and Wat U-Mong to enjoy the serenity surrounding & peace ! Both of them are unique meditation places, very interesting and serene. See you in the morning at 5:00 a.m.-05:10 a.m.

    Great tour. The guide was a former monk, so he had lots of good information. The tour included seeing the monks during their morning chanting at the temple, making an offering to a monk (they provided the food items) and then receiving a blessing. The only drawback (besides

    5am in morning it is an early start but when you are up there watching the sunrise & being part of the monks chat is fascinating. Very small group & having the opportunity to participate and visit the temple by yourself is a fantastic experience.

    We had the entire temple almost to ourselves. We saw the city lights of Chiang Mai before sunrise, saw, heard and made food offerings to the monks before sunrise and then saw an amazing sunrise. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable! As we exited we passed tour buses headed

    Not worth your time or money!
    We did the 2 days/1 night hill tribe experience and we found it very disappointing for the price you actually pay.
