One of the must do attractions in Chiang Mai. Spectacular views over the city and certainly worth the 306 steps from the road below to view the temple and surrounds. For the less firm, take the cable lift.
There were so many beautiful details that made this temple so unique and special.

You can either walk up the 306 Naga steps to the Wat or take the cable lift. Upon the top you can sense the devotion and prayers offered to the Buddha. There are vantage points overseeing the city of Chiang Mai. Must see!
Wat Phra Doing Suthep is, quite simply, one of the greatest temples we have ever visited. If you're in Chiang Mai and don't visit, you're nuts!

Yes of course you can visit without being part of a tour guide/group but you must be aware of the respectful protocols that you must abide by. I visited here with close friends from Chiang Mai. As far as I can remember I think it closes at around 5pm each day. It certainly is worth the visit, just stunning and so beautiful!! The history of how the site was chosen is also amazing.
