Tour Map

Tour Overview

A very early start will be required as there is a lot to take in before breakfast! After pick up from your Chiang Mai hotel we will make our way to the local market where we will purchase some items for the monks. We will then proceed to the temple or local market where the monks make their early morning alms rounds. You will then get the opportunity to offer the alms to the monks in return for a blessing. It will then be time to make our way up Doi Pui mountain to Chiang Mai's most famous temple, Doi Suthep. Early morning is a great time to visit when there are less visitors and the air is cool. On route up to the temple we will stop at Kruba Srivichai shrine, dedicated to the monk who founded the temple. Following the temple visit we will make our way back down the mountain and into the city to drop you at your Chiang Mai hotel in time for breakfast!
