Receive a pickup in a vehicle from your Chiang Mai hotel to start the day. Your departure time will depend on the tour option you’ve selected. Start with a driving exploration of Chiang Mai, during which you’ll check out the city’s most important government buildings, residential neighborhoods, and its old city gate and moat.
Continue into the hills outside down as you visit Wat Prathat Doi Suthep, a temple that dates to the year 1384 and is known for its Buddha relic. Admire the great views from this 3,520-foot (1,056-meter) viewpoint and explore the temple complex’s ‘Chedi’ (Buddhist monument), all reachable after climbing the temple’s 300+ stairs.
After your temple visit proceed to the Doi Pui area, where you’ll stop by a Hmong hill tribe village. Check out the residents’ colorful clothing and feel free to bargain for a few textiles, ornaments or handicrafts during your visit. After visiting the Hmong village, you’ll receive a drop-off at your Chiang Mai hotel.
