Climb the 309 steps up to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, a sacred Buddhist temple set on top of a mountain overlooking Chiang Mai. Take in extensive views of the city below before admiring the impressive artistry of the temple's main buildings and decorative flourishes. Said to have been established in the late 14th century, this well-maintained place of worship remains the subject of many myths and legends, with the truth of its construction and development still a mystery. The evocative design and enigmatic heritage create a powerful atmosphere in the secluded mountaintop location. If you'd rather skip the stairs, take advantage of the efficient tram service.

I visited at night which turned out to be amazing. The gold really stands out and the peacefulness of this place can be felt. Not a lot of traffic around 7pm when I visited. Some great eateries nearby too. Find the white elephant inside after climbing the 300 plus steps!
Little touristy but I guess you have to live up with that. It's well maintained and the souvenirs shop over there are pretty interesting. We found some interesting goods at good deal (Please Bargain). I just felt in love with the Buddha Painting which I got there!!! Also, the food stalls out there are worth trying. Do visit if you are in Chang Mai.
