A must visit, if not you did not come to Chiang Mai. Spend some time at the temple and pray if you are here. The viewpoint can see the whole CM city if it is not hazy.

We went there by red pick up car as tuk tuk cannot go there. The road was windy and it takes around 15 minutes from Chiang Mai Zoo. Golden pagoda was very beautiful.

Normally Temple will not close but it surely will be crowded.
So can you just get there yourself and walk around? Tours are about 1300 baht of the temple & the city. I'd be happy to just get there on my own by cab if it's only a few hundred +40 entrance. Thoughts?

That's what I did when I visited too. I would recommend an open tuk tuk, instead one of the fancier cabs because you will actually enjoy the trip greatly, I think - it's amazing once you start climbing and the air becomes... More
