Doi Suthep and Doi Pui Hmong Village


  • Doi Suthep Temple – the most iconic temple in Chiang Mai.
  • Doi Pui Village – visit this charming hill tribe village tucked away in the hills.

You cannot say you have visited Chiang Mai without first visiting Doi Suthep. The temple on top of the mountain is the number one destination and apart from the amazing spirituality of the place, the view out over the city below is just spectacular.

If you go on a day trip, you get a VIP bus that picks you up at 8am and in just 30 minutes you reach your first stop of the day, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep or Doi Suthep Temple. There is an electric tram that takes you to the top if you don’t want to take the 309 steps. The temple itself is beautiful, but so is the view out over Chiang Mai below. Don’t forget to take a photo on the stairs before leaving, it’s almost a tradition now!

The next stop was the Doi Pui village, a small village with a beautiful natural flower garden. There are not so many trees so the weather was cool but the garden was beautiful, and only 10 baht entry! Near the garden is a small market selling local handmade products great for souvenirs.

As it is a half day trip, you usually get back into town at around 1pm, so you have time for other things if you wish. It maybe only half a day but the experience is great and a visit Chiang Mai is not complete without a trip to Doi Suthep.

    Doi Suthep and Phuping Palace
    The trip took around half a day, setting out at 8am and getting back into town by around 1pm. The trip starts with a VIP bus collecting you and taking you up the mountain. The first stop is the Phuping Palace (or Bhubing Palace) which is extremely beautiful in the morning, with dew and mist surrounding the vibrant gardens.

    Built in the 60s, this temple is the Royal accommodation for when the Royal Family visit Chiang Mai. However, when they are not in town, the grounds and the gardens are open to the public. The gardens are filled with stunning roses that the Royal Princesses adore.
    After the palace, the bus takes you back to the temple, locally known as Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. This is by far the most famous landmark of Chiang Mai, as it looks over the city. At night some mistake it for an alien, floating in the night sky as the darkness hides the mountain.

    There is a small electric tram up to the temple if you don’t want to take the 309 steps to the entrance. Both foreigners and Thais come and pay homage to the relics and the Buddha statues, and enjoy the atmosphere before looking out over the city from the best viewpoint in town.

    Before heading back, you can take some photos on the steps before picking up some snacks and souvenirs at the bottom of the steps. A great day out with time to do more in the afternoon if you desire. A must see for anyone visiting Chiang Mai.
