Staff Review

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.
