Doi Suthep & Bhubing Palace

Type of Tour: Half Day


our English-speaking tour guide will pick you up from your hotel, ready to leave the lively city behind and make your way into the tranquillity of rural Thailand. Your first stop will be the most sacred temple in northern Thailand, the hilltop Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, or Doi Suthep as it’s known for short. Gleaming gold leaf adorns the ornate Buddhist complex and its beacon-like stupa, which is home to a relic of Buddha, making it a pilgrimage center for thousands of devotees every year.

To reach the lofty heights of the temple, you’ll choose between traveling by tram (not included) or climbing the 306 steps up to the peak. Guarded by two dragon-like serpents known as “naga”, the ascent up the vibrantly colorful stairway is supposed to earn believers Buddhist merit. At the top and being dazzled by the beautiful Doi Suthep temple complex, you’ll also have spectacular views over the lush greenery of the valley and the city.

Head to the nearby Bhubing Palace next. The winter residence of Thailand’s royal family, this peaceful building, constructed upon stilts, is an excellent example of Thai architecture. It is surrounded by beautiful grounds including a rose garden, which thrives up in the cool mountain air, unusually for the country’s tropical climate.

Following your guided tour of these two wonderful sights, you’ll be taken back to your hotel in Chiang Mai at around midday.
