Must-Do Activity in Chiang Mai

I am so happy that I took this tour. It is such an experience. The tour company picked me up on time from my hotel and we arrived at the temple before the sunrise. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the temples we visited and about the history of Buddhism. We pretty much had the temple to ourselves and was able to tour the temple without issues. We were able to sit on a buddhist lesson between a monk and monks in training. We were also able to give alms to a monk and receive a blessing. After that, we watched the sunrise over Chiang Mai. It is a great view of the city. Then we visited two more temples, including the hidden temple (with its resident peacock). At the end, we had a traditional thai breakfast at a local restaurant.

Awesome Sunrise Experience at Doi Suthep

Incredible experience. It was so peaceful being in the temple at sunrise and listening to the monks perform their morning chants. One really is swept up with the atmosphere. There is nothing like it and it is an experience everyone should try.

Worth getting up early for! Highly recommend going before the crowds arrive. Our former monk guide was fantastic and very knowledgable. So glad I booked this tour as it was one of the highlights from my Chiang Mai trip.

This is an early start but worth it for beating the crowds and getting to experience the Monks morning start in a Temple. Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate and gave us a good perspective on a Monks life.

Sunrise is a great time to go to Doi Sudep

Sunrise is a fantastic time to go to Doi Sudep: no crowds, see the sun rise, view the temple in the dark and after sunrise, see monks chanting and an Alms giving-ceremony. The hidden temple is also great - so peaceful. We had a very small group (myself as solo traveller and two other people) so it felt like a private tour. Mon is an excellent guide - punctual, friendly, very knowledgeable (and a great photographer!). I highly recommend this tour.
