    Wat Doi Suthep

    Wat Doi Suthep

    Favorite thing: I love the style of the golden umbrellas and the whole setting of Wat Doi Suthep. On most days you can get a nice cool breeze too! It would be a hard bicycle trip up but of course could be done and you will want to make sure you have brakes if you're gonna attempt the downhill on a bicycle!

    chinag mai seen from the doi suitep

    Favorite thing: chiang mai, the rose of the north... i was expecting beauty everywhere, but i found only noise and traffic. It has its beautiful moments, of course, but generally speaking it is bangkok's little (and uglier) sister. Of my visit there I mostly enjoyed some temples (as usual) and the stunning Doi Suitep just off Chiang Mai. What I did not like were the tourist traps: the snake farms, elephant camps, orchid farms... so unnatural, so uninteresting

    Fondest memory: getting away, I suppose. When I was still there i quite liked the night bazar and enjoyed finding out, after a tuk-tuk crash, that the police and ambulance are very efficient. Very reassuring!

    Fondest memory: From this ancient Buddhist Wat at 1000 meters above the city, you can look over the entire Chiang Mai valley on a clear day.

    About 16km west of the city. You can catch a bus or take a tour. We went up in a rented motorscooter.

    PS. Take your shoes off.

    Favorite thing: Chiang Mai : Thailand's second-largest city and the gateway to the country's north. Chiang Mai is a good base for mountain treks. The picture here is Doi Suthep Temple, one of the Thailand's holiest temples.

    Wat Doi Suthep stairs

    Favorite thing: The 300 steps up to the Temple are very beautiful. You will get some great views of the plains from the top.
