Chiang Mai Itinerary advice
Save

Hi,

I am trying to organize my Chiang Mai itinerary and was wondering if Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

and Bua Thong Waterfalls (Nam Phu Chet Si) could be done on the same day. Or is it too much? We have the other days planned and we now only have one free day left. We are also trying to fit Doi Inthanon National Park into our itinerary.

Any suggestions on which of these 3 sites we should see for sure / which ones of the 3 can be done in the same day?

Thanks!

With a private car (and driver) you can do (1) Doi Suthep (and maybe a village) in a half day if you start early, and then up to (2) Bua Thong waterfalls in the afternoon. OR do (3) Doi Inthanon including the waterfalls, botanical gardens, Royal Pagodas, summit, etc. But trying to do all three in one day is totally impractical, unrealistic, overkill, etc. Prioritise ;-)

Thank you for the information! Would you be able to tell me how we can go about hiring a private driver? Do we go through our hotel to hire a driver for the day?

Thank you!

Try untouched Thailand...we saw Doi Suthep and the park all in one day. Got my first taste for Khao Soi, and this trip, tried to find and eat, the best in the city..
