What to expect

The city of Chiang Mai has a wealth of beautiful and historic Buddhist Wats (temples). On this tour visit the most fascinating Wats in the city with a guide on a 3 and a half hours tour.

Near the summit of Doi Suthep, is the 600 year old temple of Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep. After a drive up the mountain’s winding road, the final climb to the site is via an enormous mythological Nagas (Dragon-headed serpent) staircase of 306 steps (elevators are available). Inside the cloister is an intriguing copper-plated chedi topped by a five-tier gold parasol, which contains partial relics of Lord Buddha. On a clear day, there are incomparable views over the city of Chiang Mai from the temple grounds.

Other temples visited on this tour include Wat Suan Dok, whose large central stupa contains Buddha relic which supposedly self-multiplied and Wat Chedi Luang consist of an impressive chedi, originally built in 1411. It reached a height of over 85 meters before it was partially destroyed by an earthquake in 1545. It now reaches a height of only 60 meters. The temple also contains the city pillar.
