The Chiang Mai temple tour is the perfect chance to sample the most famous and beautiful of the city’s 36 Buddhist temples (Wats), both inside the city walls and in the nearby countryside. 

Start your Chiang Mai temple tour with a pick-up from your hotel in the city about 30 minutes to an hour before the start of the tour. From there you’ll visit Wat Chedi, an ancient structure in Central Chiang Mai first constructed in 1411. The temple once rose over 278 feet (84 meters) above the city before it was partially destroyed by an earthquake in 1545. Glance inside the temple to observe statues of guardian spirits that some say protect the temple to this day. 

The tour will also ascend the rolling hills surrounding the Chiang Mai to experience the immaculate Wat Phrathat Doi Sutep, perched high above the urban center near the summit of the peak of Doi Suthep. The final staircase leading to the site is adorned with the impressive body of the mythical dragon-headed serpent, or Naga, snaking its way down 306 steps.

Over the course of the tour, gain first-hand insight into habits of the temples’ Buddhist monks as they go about their daily routines, plus plenty of opportunities to photograph historic environs of Chiang Mai and the majestic views from the foothills surrounding the city.

The best way to know Chiang Mai in a half-day tour. And we were lucky because the group was just the two of us!

A good tour, but our guide did not have good English. Traffic coming back into Chiang Mai slowed us down.

This tour was OK. The guide didn't seem to know much English and had difficulty answering our questions. The temples were good but would have been improved by a better guide. It is good that it was a short tour.

The tour guide didnt have much to say, was very quiet and had poor English. It was just me and my sister on this tour and after giving us some brief info he let us walk around freely whilst he waited for us. I felt like I would have liked a bit more background info. Pick up and drop off were on time. The driver managed the conditions on the mountain fine but drove a bit fast at times. The sites themselves were good but explanations were very brief.

A very fun and informative tour. Our tour guide A Tin was great. He was very attentive to my needs as I have a cane and helped me see as much as I could and at my pace. Loved going up to the temple on the Mountain top. There are 200 temples in Chang Mai. This tour covered the ones on my bucket list. I recommend this tour if you don't have all day to spend.
