Description

Discover Chiang Mai's ancient temples on this half-day tour. Explore historic and religious monuments from Wat Doi Suthep, Wat Suan Dok and Wat Chedi Luang. Marvel at the scenic views of Chiang Mai city and the intricate architecture of historical Buddhist and Hindu relics.

After the hotel pick-up in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle, sit back and relax as you journey to ancient Wat Doi Suthep. Drive through mountainous landscapes and pass by lush vistas as you head to the base of this majestic complex.

Upon arrival, climb the mythological nagas (dragon-headed serpent) staircase of more than 300 steps to reach the temple or, if your prefer, take the elevators. Enjoy panoramic 360-degree views of Chiang Mai city and make sure to take pictures of this charming site.

Next, visit the Wat Suan Dok, a Buddhist temple built in the centre of a walled settlement. Among its sights are the 48-metre (157-foot) bell-shaped stupa and a bronze Buddha statue in the Bhumisparsha-Mudra posture, robed in the style of the ancient Ayutthaya Kingdom.

Your last stop is the historic Wat Chedi Luang, a majestic Buddhist temple featuring distinctive stone designs influenced by the Lanna architectural style. Wander around this recently restored temple and admire its intricately carved pillars, before returning to your hotel.

Our tour guide was very helpful and informative. The three stops were very interesting and unique. Grateful we didn’t need to climb the steps up the final temple and took the cable car :)

Very interesting - they were very prompt and organised. We had some problem understanding the guide at times but she was generally very good. The tour is interesting in that we visited 3 temples of national importance
