A great Wat well worth visiting, it is outstanding with a vast golden dome, the grounds are all very next and tidy. Get a taxi from the city to get here, not expensive. then take the cable car to the top, one might have to wait for 10 min, but worth it as the 300 steps in the heat are... More

An impressive looking temple situated on a hill just outside Chiangmai which is accessed by a long winding road. Very busy when we got there with quite a few tourist shops at it's base. There's the option to walk up (300 steps) or take the lift. At the summit there are magnificent views of the city and an impressive temple... More

PhraThat Doi Suthep is one of the must-seen in chiangmai, this is the place that's the center of faith in northern province. The photographer can also came here to take a beautiful picture of golden sanctum stand which is stand there for a really long time .

There is a monk there to collect donations & bless u, the art work on the walls n the wood carving tell a beautiful story.... More

If you only have time for one Wat in Chiang Mai, make it Doi Suthep. Gorgeous temple grounds and buildings. Beautiful bells to ring and gongs to hit. Really a spiritual beauty.

did a private early morning tour to arrive at the temple well before sunrise and we were the first people there, apart from the monks. We came back an hour after sunrise and while more people there then, still relatively quiet. Unfortunately we couldnt see the views due to the smoke haze, but on a clear day it would be... More

Getting to Doi Suthep is relatively easy. Catch a ride with one of the red pick-up trucks outside the North Gate or get your hotel to call a cab to take you there. Go early because loads of tourist come to visit Doi Suthep. You can walk the 306 stairs or you can take a cable car up. You pay... More

A very beautiful temple with breathtaking views. Very colorful and huge. However, try to beat the crowd (not sure when) because it`s awful walk and enjoy it among so many people...

Well now. This temple pretty much puts every other temple to shame and Chiang Mai is chock-full of them...be prepared for an utter loss of words when you take this beauty in with your own two eyes. The photos will never do it justice so please just take my word for it and go visit. It'll be well worth the... More

The complex itself is really amazing and requires a little bit of time to fully enjoy. The views are great if you are lucky with the weather.
