    Incredible location on top of a mountain overlooking the city. Time your visit after a rain shower or on a windy afternoon to guarantee a good view, otherwise the smog prevents seeing most anything.

    If you have the time, I'd avoid paying a taxi to take you from the city here and back again within 2h. Make it a day trip, perhaps hike up and then head for the waterfalls or other cool spots around.

    As a mountain lover I just couldn't help falling in love with Suthep;) the temple on top also captured my heart, with its lovely heart-shaped decorations.

    One of the most amazing and important places to see in northern Thailand. Try stairs to climb.

    I agree that this is a beautiful temple, but from all I heard I expected a little more. I've had the impression that this temple it's not really taken cared of as it should.

    Be prepared to spend the day here. There is so much to see and do. Whether you bike, hike or ride there is something for everyone.

    Tucked away in the mountains at 3,520 feet (1,056 meters).The temple is reached by a staircase with 300 steps, flanked by a NAGA balustrade on both sides.

    Better to prepare the plastic bag just in case you feel nausea :) the sour fruits can also relief the symptom.

    You can either motorbike there, ride a bicycle to the zoo and take a ted taxi (40 Bath one way) to the temple or catch a red taxi at the north gate (60 Bath one way).

    You can get a beautiful view of the entire city from up here. The view is even better when you come at night

    The one not to miss in Chiang Mai. Impressive and very important too! Interesting history.

    Take the cable car up the hill, and walk back down the steps – it's a bit easier. Incredible views of the city, and of the airport (if you're a plane nerd).

    Sunrise. Do it. In Jan, that means get a cab at 5:30 and be the first on the mountain. So serene. But check the weather first!

    Be blessed with a small donation. This 400+ year old temple has an white elephant statue and a good look out point at the city.

    Best view on the city. When the farmers burn their fields the air is dirty in the city so you won't be able to see very far. Don't bother going to the Hmong village it's useless nothing to see.

    The drive up is lovely. Super crowded, but great views of the city and lots of fun merchants outside.

    Great view over the chiangmai on the way uphill. Rent a motorbike and go to the top (pass Wat Suthep to Doi Pui) to see sunset

    Take a song teow (sp?) to the Chiang Mai zoo. From there, take another song teow for 40 baht up to the temple.

    New men and women's restrooms, sponsored by Cotto, located near the cable car station are nice and clean.

    Non-Thais need to pay 30 baht entrance fee to the temple after climbing more than 309 steps of stair.

    The ride to the hill in the hot day is maybe even better that the temple itself.

    Too crowded, too chaotic, too commercial. What used to be an incredible temple & must-do place to visit in Chiangmai is now a crass tourist trap. There are much better temples to visit close to town.
