DOI SUTHEP TEMPLE & CITY TOUR
A city boasting over 700 years of history, this tour gives a great overview. Head to the most significant temple in Chiang Mai, the 600 year-old Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. Inside you will find the copper-plated Chedi that is topped by a five-tier gold parasol,
which contains relics of the Lord Buddha. From the terrace you have panoramic views of the entire city. Once you get there, that final climb up the 306 steps of the Naga staircase will seem worth it!

EVENING KHANTOKE DINNER & SHOW
The food in this region is very different to the rest of the country. Traditionally Northern families sit and eat around a ‘Khantoke’, a small circular table, sitting on the floor. On this tour enjoy a meal of several Northern dishes, along with a very graceful show of Northern Thai dancing, including the fingernail dance and the ‘Ramwong’, where you will be invited to participate as well as a special show featuring dances from the various hill tribes.
