Doi Suthep Temple

This temple, which is locally known as Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, is one of the most famous temples in Chiang Mai. Perched atop the Suthep Mountain, this is one of the few temples in the country claiming to contain a very important Buddha relic. Visitors come to see the temple from far and wide for its beautiful views of Chiang Mai City, landscaped gardens, and magical atmosphere. Climb the 300+ stairs (if you dare) or ride a carriage to the top.

Mae Wang River Bamboo Rafting

Enjoy a relaxing ride on a bamboo raft as you float down the shallow, slow-moving Mae Wang River. A local guide will navigate the waters while you sit back and listen to the birds chirping and watch the gently swaying trees and ferns along the riverbank.

Hug Elephant Sanctuary

The Elephant Hug Sanctuary is home to a herd of rescued elephants that once worked in the logging, riding, and entertainment industries. Now, they spend their time freely roaming and enjoying the company of human friends. Play and pet these beautiful animals as well as learn about their natural behaviors and importance in Thai culture.
