If you’re going to visit one temple in Chiang Mai, you’ll probably visit one of the millions of temples within the Old City because they’re everywhere. But if you’re going to visit a second temple, make sure it’s Wat Phra That Doi Suthep (a lot of people call it“Doi Suthep”). It’s that shining golden glimmer up on the green mountainside that you can see from almost anywhere in the city. Most non-Thai visitors don’t even know that it’s one of the most sacred temples in Thailand, but on top of the great religious significance and beauty, it’s an incredible destination that can be as much about the journey as you want it to be.
