Overview

Chiang Mai has an abundance of beautiful and historic Buddhist temples, and this 3.5-hour tour takes you to some of the most interesting and revered in Thailand’s second largest city. Climb the staircase to the mountain temple of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and visit Wat Chedi Luang, among others. Upgrade your tour for a private guide.
  • 3.5-hour tour of Chiang Mai temples
  • Visit Doi Suthep, Wat Chedi Luang, and Wat Phra Singh
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Opt to upgrade for a private tour
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
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 were the only 2 on this tour which made for a very personal service. The guide was very careful to take us round at our own pace and we were never rushed. He had an amazing knowledge of local history and that of Buddhist culture. His English was very good and easy to understand.
