We enjoyed our trip to Doi Suket but I believe what made it so special was going there at sunrise before the crowds. We combined it with morning alms giving and it was an unforgettable experience.

It is perhaps one of the most visited places in Chiang Mai. When you reach the area you aren't quite sure of what awaits you as it looks like a normal building with some street vendors all over. Suddenly you spot the colorful serpent heads...More

The temple itself was beautiful for sure, but packed with tourist. My best advise here is to, instead of driving to the temple, HIKE THE MONK'S TRAIL! to the temple. Honestly, I feel like I shouldn't even mention it because it felt like a wonderful...More

Yes the red bhat buses are good and cheap but bit rough on the bum going up there. Plus there's so many other things to see near by while your there. Strike a deal with local taxi man. Id say a 1000bhat for the tour up there.
