Highlights and Amazing Sunrise of Chiang Mai
This is a must experience in Chiang Mai. Enjoy the magical morning light and incredible views in serenity in the mountains and visit the famous Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple.
For this tour we wake up and leave early in the morning around 5:00- 5:15 am and drive up into the mountains to visit the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple. We highly recommend visiting this famous temple at dawn. The temple is quiet and the monks are just rousing and going out to receive alms offerings. Without any crowds you can enjoy the magical morning light and incredible views in serenity. It is the beginning of a great and wonderful day.
Doi Suthep temple is located on the peak of the Doi Suthep Mountain and is the most famous landmark in Chiang Mai. They say you have not truly been to Chiang Mai if you have not visited this temple! At the top of the temple you can view the pagoda shining with real gold, and a viewing platform offers panoramic views of the whole Chiang Mai City – take in the wonderful countryside landscape while the sun rises behind the city and mountains. The morning sky and view could be immortalized in a beautiful painting! Morning life at the temple is unforgettable -the sound of temple bells, monks chanting and the fascinating view of Chiang Mai will fill your heart. Don’t leave Chiang Mai without this impression.
Before we continue to the other sites, we will have a nice and original taste of famous and delicious Chiang mai food - Khoi Soy or delicious local Thai food.
After the sunrise. we can drop by at the hidden jungle temple and Wat Umong to enjoy the serenity surrounding and peace! Both of them are unique, very interesting and serene.
