Wat Doi Suthep & White Hmong Hill-Tribe Village via Songthaew

Day Trips & Excursions

Explore the historic Wat Doi Suthep temple and native White Hmong hill-tribe village on this half-day trip from Chiang Mai. Discover ancient monuments in Wat Doi Suthep, enjoy panoramic views of Chiang Mai city, ride a songthaew (adapted pick-up truck), and interact with White Hmong villagers.
