Wat Doi Suthep: Amazing Sunrise on Mountaintop & Stunning Chiangmai City Views

182 reviews
See the gleaming golden spire and elaborate sculptures of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep in peace and quiet on this serene sunrise tour. Watch the light spill across northern Thailand from one of the region’s highest points, and witness a morning alms-giving ceremony that most visitors miss. Your guide is a former monk, so you'll get first-hand insight into temple life and the Buddhist faith. A delicious Thai breakfast is also included.

There is just so much to see and buy as you wander thru the village with some of the best Thai silk I have seen in Thailand. The restaurants are excellent and the LOS is really the Land of Smiles up here. A must visit. You can just get a Song tau outside Doi Sutep.

This village consists of many different sub-districts dedicated to different tribes that mostly are in exile from surrounding countries such as Burma (as was), Nepal and Cambodia. They are all practicing their traditional skills of weaving, carving etc and their products are all for sale. You can also have a go as shooting with a traditional bow and arrow and there are fields where farming activities are taking place. All of the different tribes have different styles, colours of dress, jewellery etc. The ‘long neck’ tribe as they are called by local Thais stretch appear to stretch their necks with stacked rings around their necks, but the reality is that the shoulders and rib cage are actually pushed down. All in all very pleasant to walk around and view although it feels a little bit intrusive at times.

Going to the village was a good opportunity to see a mountain village. The effort made to have a school there was very impressive. Recommend visiting if you have the time and don’t mind riding in the back of a pickup truck over a dirt road to get to the village.

While some may see this as a tourist trap, and others see this as a human zoo, it is as authentic as it gets for these people living here. By visiting there, you are supporting their way of life. They are refugees from other countries, given this space by Thailand, to develop and grow. Yes, it is a tourist market. They are not pushy, They are very friendly and willing to talk and take photos with you. And, you walk away with some education about a new kind of human being. This is my second visit to the area. It was worth every bhat I spent. If you have a choice between visiting this site or the one in Chiang Rai, I HIGHLY recommend this one. It is much more developed, has more ethnic groups in one location, and it is much more educational.
