4-Hour Doi Suthep and Temples Tour from Chiang Mai

8 reviews
Explore Chiang Mai’s most splendid temples on a 4-hour cultural tour through the city’s gleaming spires, hushed sanctuaries and towering stupas. Climb 300 steps to the mountaintop Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, with commanding views of the surrounding countryside. Stroll the pristine clusters of white chedi in Wat Suan Dok, which contains the ashes of Chiang Mai’s former royal family, and discover the weathered pagodas of Wat Jed Yod, an atmospheric temple whose ‘seven spires’ date to the 15th-century and are nestled in lush jungle foliage.

Even though the water was very low the 50 Min. Bamboo raft ride down the river was very nice and tranquil. Our two raftmen did a great job keeping us from bottoming out in the low river. Beautiful scenery and quiet made this very wonderful.

Dirty water river, no wild life, nothing typical that worths mentioning... even the stop at the farmer lodge is quite boring, got offered unripe pineapple and watermelon... paid 550 bath...stay away from this.

Why ? Because it is what we did and we had the chance to see several interesting events. Like a Wedding, or a gathering of boy scouts or Loi Kratong floating candles launching... And we didn't see any tourists at all. So it was, if dare I say, authentic ? You know, we tourists (!) are always looking for the authenticity of what we see, dreading the crowds or the hustle of sellers forcing into our hands unneeded souvenirs. Well, all this didn't happen near the river, which in itself was remarkable as we were in Chiang Mai for 5 days, last November, for Yi Peng and Loy Krathong (Lantern Festival), which are the top touristic events of the year. However, if you are in Chiang Mai for 1 or 2 days only, then there many more amazing things to see and experience (like visiting the Temples for instance). So if you have enough time, this river is a nice enough place to see, with may be a short cruise on it. As always (or almost) I have attached plenty of pictures...to give you a glimpse of what we enjoyed to see there.

Went on Mae Ping River cruise dinner. 2.5 hours. An old boat typically Thailand but good value for money paid. Loverly on board service. Had a beautiful South Frican wine. Food was lovely and more than plentiful. Went down river in daylight and came back at dark.
