Half-Day Chiang Mai City and Temples Tour Including Doi Suthep

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Depart in the morning or afternoon from your hotel in downtown Chiang Mai. If you booked the private option, you'll benefit from the services of a personal guide as you explore several centuries-old temples in the 'Rose of the North.'

    Start with the crown jewel: Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, located near the summit of its namesake mountain. Take a drive up the mountain’s winding road, then disembark for the final climb of 306 steps via a staircase designed as a magnificent naga (dragon-headed serpent). Inside the temple you'll find a copper-plated chedi (stupa) topped by a five-tiered gold umbrella, believed to contain partial relics of Lord Buddha. On a clear day, enjoy commanding views over Chiang Mai.

    After your descent, continue on down a road into town, passing by Warorot Market before visiting two more impressive temples. First is the must-see Wat Chedi Luang, which towers 196 feet (60 meters) high and is the revered home of the Emerald Buddha. Next, visit the 14th-century Wat Phra Singh (Temple of the Lion Lord), which houses a sacred 1,500-year-old Buddha image and served as the principal religious center of the Lanna Kingdom. The complex is composed of several buildings of varying architectural and artistic merit.

    Conclude your half-day tour with the return to your Chiang Mai hotel.

    We really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was very informative & we enjoyed learning all that we heard. We were taken to several locations & it was nice not having to worry about parking. We were dropped off & picked up right in front of the temples.

    The guide was very knowledgeable, we learnt a lot about Buddhism and the story of Buddha when we reached Doi Suthep. We didn't see Wat Chedi Luang or Wat Phra Singh, the guide took us instead to Wan Chiang Man which is the oldest temple in Chiang Mai. Nonetheless, it was a good
