Visit Wat Phra That Doi Suthep
This sacred Buddhist wat is located at the top of Doi Suthep, among lush jungle surrounds. It is not only an important temple for Lanna culture, but is revered throughout Thailand, with families coming to visit the site from every corner of the country. Climb the 308 steps on the mythical Naga serpent staircase to the temple, where you will be rewarded with a wholesome cultural experience and breathtaking views of the city below. Our top tip is to visit the temple early in the morning before the crowds start to gather; a lift is available for those unable or unwilling to make the climb on a hot day. There are plenty of options for refreshing drinks and snacks as well as for picking up some authentic souvenirs.
