Take this private tour and get an overview of the beautiful city of Chiang Mai, with its over 700 years of history.
This is a good tour to start off your stay in Chiang Mai, since it gives you an overview of our beautiful city with its over 700 years of history.
We take the winding road up the side of the hill overlooking the city to visit the most significant temple in Chiang Mai, the 600 year-old Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. It lies 3500 feet above sea level. Inside you will find the symbol of the city, the copper-plated Chedi that is topped by a five-tier gold parasol. It contains relics of the Lord Buddha. From the terrace on a clear day, you will have a fine panoramic view of the entire city. Once you get there that final climb up the 306 steps of the Naga staircase, a Thai mythological Dragon-headed serpent, will seem worth it!
In the city we will see the King's glorious flower garden temple at Wat Saun Dok and visit Wat Chedi Louang which consists of an impressive Chedi originally built in 1411.
All our card payments are protected by thawte to give you peace of mind.
