What to expect on this tour
The tour starts with a pickup from your hotel in Chiang Mai or within a 3km radius. Our friendly English speaking guide will welcome you and we take our air conditioned minivan to the first destination for this morning: a Hmong hill tribe village. The Hmong are an indigenous people living in Laos, China, Thailand and Vietnam. In Thailand they are known as hill tribes and they are famous for their colorful clothing. We visit their village and you can see the Hmong at work or playing. Have a stroll around the village and see the market with so many local produce.
We stay here around 1 hour before we move on to the next stop: Doi Suthep. Our van takes you to the top of the mountain. On the way you will have beautiful panoramic views over the city, but you can save your camera for the top, where we vist the temple: Wat Phra Doi Suthep.
To get to the temple, there are 2 options. If you feel reasonably fit, you can walk the 300 steps to the temple. Be sure to take a few moments to breathe on the way as it is a rather steep climb. The other option is to take the covered cable car. Sit down and enjoy the views while the cable is pulled to the top. It should take no more than a few minutes to get there. On the top, our guide will explain about the temple and show you its details.
You will see beautiful flowers, Buddha statues and monks chanting in the temple. The best part of the Doi Suthep tour is the view: walk onto the terrace and see Chiang Mai from way above! You will see the old city with its characteristic narrow streets and the airport where airplanes come and go. Be sure to bring a camera because this is the kind of panorama you want to keep for later!
The morning tour ends between 12:00 and 12:30 with a return transfer to your hotel in Chiang Mai. An amazing half day trip to the best sights in Chiang Mai. Book it online here!
