A Morning with the Monks
A wonderful tour that will immerse you in Chiang Mai’s cultural and spiritual traditions, watching barefoot monks process around the temples complex, witnessing breathtaking views of the city, and trying a delicious breakfast of noodles.
This captivating morning tour begins early in the morning, setting off at the crack of dawn and driving to Wat Phra Doi Suthep, which sits magnificently on the top of a mountain and is one of Chiang Mai’s most important spiritual sites. As you arrive, the monks in their bright red robes will emerge from the monasteries, processing quietly down the street with alms bowls, as local Buddhists give them offerings. After this serene experience, climb the enormous staircase to the top of Doi Suthep and walk around the pagoda and golden stupa, taking pictures of the spectacular views. The trail continues and you will soon reach the 14th century Wat Umong, exploring its maze of tunnels and caves, before receiving a blessing from a monk. At the end of the tour, head to a local restaurant and try a scrumptious bowl of khao soi, which is one of the city’s most loved dishes, made up of crispy noodles in a coconut curry sauce.
