Full description
Get picked up from your hotel or accommodation in Chiang Mai and drive up the curvy mountain roads to Doi Suthep - Pui National Park. You will visit the most important temple here. Walk up 306 steps (or, if you prefer an easier method, take a funicular ride) to the temple, which sits at 1,100 meters above sea level. The famous golden pagoda is stunning and the temple contains the relic of the Lord Buddha. Here, you'll also have the chance to get a holy blessing from a Buddhist monk and participate in a wrist tiding ceremony. From the balcony, enjoy a panoramic view of Chiang Mai. Next, you'll continue to Bua Tong waterfalls. Swim around the clear water or climb the "sticky" limestone and enjoy the gorgeous natural scenery.

We had an amazing day! Magi was really engaging and made sure we had a great time. She was friendly and knowledgeable and gave us lots of interesting information about the temple and Chan Mai. She also took lots of pictures of the day and sent them to us, which was a lovely touch. Adam the driver was also friendly and the car was comfortable. We loved going to the waterfall - so fun! Definitely worth going.

This was a wonderful experience and definitely one of the highlight of our trips to Chiang Mai. Maggie and Pon did a great job of showing us the sights and were always willing to answer any questions to help us better understand the Thai culture and Buddha religion. I would highly recommend this tour!

We had such a wonderful experience on this trip largely because we had such excellent guides! Mr. Anan was extremely knowledgeable of both the temple area and waterfall and treated us to a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. Mr. Ohm was a very reliable driver and kept us comfortable and safe for the rather long journey. Mr. Anan also took wonderful pictures of us throughout the day and even made them into a short movie for my husband and I!! Truly an excellent experience, I would not hesitate to recommend them to my family and friends. Thank you!!
