We visited this temple at night with a tour guide - it was very quiet and the view over Chiang mai is astonishing! Thai's say that you haven't properly arrived in Chiang Mai before you visit this temple, and you can certainly see why! Tours...More

This temple is the highest altitude temple in Thailand. It sits over Chiang Mai and offers an amazing view to the entire city. If it's a clear bright day then a trip to Doi Suthep is a must.

Visited here on a cloudy morning, the mist still surrounded the temple in the hills, which added to this visit. This did clear and we had a lovely view of the city, one of the best things we did while in the city.
