Visit the sacred Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and witness breathtaking views of the city atop the mountain. Immerse Thai culture at the Hmong village. This half day tour will take you to the most breathtaking sites the city has to offer. Visit one of the most sacred temples, the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep (Doi Suthep temple), seated atop a mountain giving you breathtaking views of the entire Chiang Mai. It was established in 1383 under the reign of King Keu Naone and has a very mystical birth story. A visiting Sukhothai monk had told the Lanna king to create a temple by using the twin of the miraculous Buddha relic. This relic was placed on a white elephant, which wandered the mountain until it died in the very spot where the temple sits. This was interpreted as the “chosen location”. The temple can be reached by a long, and quite strenuous 306 step staircase, which was intended as an act of meditation. For those who aren’t that fit, there is a tram that will take you to the temple.
