On your way to Chiang Mai, stop at the colourful Wat Rong Seua Ten, also known as the Blue Temple. A relatively new temple, it is well known for its magnificent blue interior, colourful painted murals and white Buddha statue.

Then make a stop at striking and unconventional Wat Rong Khun, better known as the White Temple. This contemporary, privately owned art exhibit is built in the style of a Buddhist temple where its white colour signifies the purity of the Buddha, while the glass, sparkling in the sun symbolises the Buddha’s wisdom and teachings.

After lunch at a local restaurant, stop at the 600-year-old Wat Doi Suthep. Reached by a winding mountain road, the final climb to the site is via a magnificent dragon-headed serpent staircase of 306 steps. On a clear day, there are incomparable views over the city of Chiang Mai. Afterwards, transfer to your hotel in the city.
