Full description
Get picked up from your hotel or accommodation in Chiang Mai and drive up the curvy mountain roads to Doi Suthep - Pui National Park. You will visit the most important temple here. Walk up 306 steps (or, if you prefer an easier method, take a funicular ride) to the temple, which sits at 1,100 meters above sea level. The famous golden pagoda is stunning and the temple contains the relic of the Lord Buddha. Here, you'll also have the chance to get a holy blessing from a Buddhist monk and participate in a wrist tiding ceremony. From the balcony, enjoy a panoramic view of Chiang Mai. Next, you'll continue to Bua Tong waterfalls. Swim around the clear water or climb the "sticky" limestone and enjoy the gorgeous natural scenery.

The driver and the tour guide (Anan) picked us up on time and then drove us to the temple, where the tour guide went with us and explained the history and answered all our questions. Then we drove to the restaurant for lunch stopping at rice fields along the way. The restaurant had very nice food and a lot! The green curry and the northern Thailand noodles in curry sauce were our favorite, would definitely go back!!! Then we drove to the sticky water falls and this was refreshing and beautiful (one of my favorite places). On the way back to the hotel we stopped at a big local market and walked around and got fruit and snacks. The driver drove very safe and made us feel very comfortable. Anan was very knowledgeable, not only about questions about the temple and history but Thailand in general. He was also funny and made jokes. Overall, a nice, relaxing and interesting tour.

Jakkie and Pon were absolutely awesome! First time in Chang Mai and actually first time on a private tour. Service was amazing with Jackie being a really knowledgeable guide and Po driving us and also keeping our belongings safe. Offered us water and towels after every stop and transport in well air conditioned van. Had the best Khao Soi for lunch which was a local favourite area hard to find. 100% would recommend this tour and our Guides. We finished a little early and went to a Silk and Gem factory as well. Thanks again Jakkie and Pon and we’ll come see you again next year so the other adventures.

The most incredible day! We had tour guide Anan and driver Pon. Both were excellent. They were so happy and kind, bright and friendly souls! They really made the experience amazing. We had so much fun at the sticky waterfalls, and got to stay a long time. The temples were very cool, despite rain, Anan really made it enjoyable as he shared historic information with us, and made us very comfortable. I would definitely recommend adding this tour to your Chiang Mai itinerary. The drive was really nice too, they stopped at fruit stands for us to have snacks, and a rice field for photos. As we enjoyed the sticky falls, they made us a collage video of our day, full of photos they took of us. It was so thoughtful and the perfect ending to our day.
