Our guide Aittippol Keelawong was the best! We received a confirmation call the day before alerting us to inform the hotel to prepare a breakfast box for our early morning departure which we assumed we would have just skipped breakfast. He arrived promptly at the scheduled time with Excellent English Skills.He was very informative explaining not only the alms giving but the history of the Temple. It was nice having him explain the food at lunch. Overall excellent tour made enjoyable by a great tour guide!
spent 4 days 3 nights in ChingMai. Day 1 arriving in early afternoon, sign up for a cooking school that night. Joined this morning tour on Day 2, and went for zip line in the afternoon. Went for a performance dinner at night at Mandarin Oriental. Day 3 signed up for a full day tour to Ching Rai black, white and blue temples. Day 4 just wondering in the resort, city, spa and heading to airport. It is an unforgettable experience.
I am glad I chose this tour to see Wat Doi Suthep. While there are a lot of tours that will take you to the top of the mountain and the temple, it was really nice to get there early in the morning before the crowds arrived. There were only a few people meandering around when we got there, so it made it easy to get nice pictures and be able to reflect a bit in the quiet surroundings as the guide explained the meaning of the different statues. The giving of alms and the visit to the meditation spot were also nice and the guide was very open and informative and explained many aspects of the Buddhist beliefs and practices. After a quick late breakfast, I was back to my hotel by 10:00 which gave me plenty of time for other activities.
Nice tour. My only complaint is that I was thee only person on my tour and the guide seemed unwilling to adjust his routine to accommodate me. I am a practicing Buddhist and would have liked to have had more time for prayer and reflection.
This was an amazing tour! Our guide was so knowledgeable and also had lots of experience to share from his times staying at Buddhist monasteries. The lunch of Khao Soy was amazing and delicious. My father and I had a great time on this tour!
