    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.

One of the highlights of our month in Thailand. If you can, do this. Non was our guide for the morning. He was brillliant. The very early start - 530 am was worth it. To wander the temple on top of the mountain, only your small group, the monks and the temple dogs, an

We were collected from our hotel by Tu. During the drive up the steep, winding road to the temple he gave us lots of information about the city and the life of a Buddhist monk. He himself had been a monk for 11 years and was very knowledgable about the religion and its history.

Been to Wat Doi Suthep many times, but wanted to do something a little different this time. Sunrise tour seemed like the perfect thing! The 5am pick up in the morning is the only painful part. The rest is incredible. We took it easy and just went with the flow. Non really knows
