Head for the temples fr £31pp

This makes a good tour to start off your stay in Chiang Mai by giving you an overview of the beautiful city and its 700 years of history. Take the winding road up the side of the hill overlooking the city to visit the most significant temple in Chiang Mai, the 600 year-old Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, which is 3,500 feet above sea level. Inside is the symbol of the city, the copper-plated Chedi, topped by a five-tier gold parasol.

The climb up the 306 steps of the Naga staircase - a Thai mythological Dragon-headed serpent - is well worth the effort to see the views. Then back in the city you also visit the King's glorious flower garden temple at Wat Saun Dok with its large central Stupa and Wat Chedi Louang which consists of an impressive Chedi, which was originally built in 1411.
