My uneducated and forgetful brain has left me with no facts or figures about Doi Suthep, but I’m guessing it would have to be the most visited temple in Chiang Mai. This huge, glitzy and golden structure is a chunder inducing and bum-numbing ride up a winding mountain road in the back of a rusty old share taxi. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous (lol #yolo), rent yourself a scooter for the very first time and decide that the best place to learn to ride it is 25km up a mountain via a very busy highway and the teenie tiny alleyways of Chiang Mai. She’ll be right, mate.
I won’t attempt to explain how beautiful this place is, but rather let you see for yourself in another collection of my dodgy attempts at photography, enjoy!
