Description
Your half day adventure will begin at the Night Bazaar and Old Town in Chiang Mai.  The center of Chiang Mai comes alive with the massive Night Market that stretches for several blocks and includes restaurants, bars and entertainment. Guests will also be able to walk around the bustling streets, funky shops, and explore the trendy Nimmanhaemin Road, located in Nimman, which is Chiang Mai's most chic neighborhood, with its trendy coffee shops, natty boutiques, hot and cool night spots and some of the city's most modern apartments. After that we head on over to Wat Umong and Wat Phra That Doi Suthep then close out the tour with a spectacular view of Chiang Mai from Wat Phra That Doi Kham, which also has the 17 meter high sitting Buddha statue on the hill top. From there guests will be able to get the spectacular mountain view of the city.
 
Wat Umong is unique temple that is built in the foothills of Suthep Mountain that is still heavily forested. The most unique feature of the temple are the tunnels which gives the Wat its name (Umong, Thai word for "tunnel").The temple and its tunnels were built in the late 14th century on a one level open space that has a large artificial mound and then crisscrossed with tunnels. The legend says that the temple was built like this for highly regarded Monks who were a little crazy, so the maze-like tunnels kept the mad Monks from wandering off. The monastery was later abandoned and wasn't used again until the 1940's. The brick walls of the mound are covered with moss and small plants. 
 
Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is one of northern Thailand's most sacred temples, and its founding legend is learned by every school in Chiang Mai. The Wat (Temple) itself is a beautiful example of northern Thai architecture, that can be reached via a strenuous climb up 306-step staircase flanked by mosaic Naga (serpents). The climb is intended to help devotees accrue Buddhist merit, but less energetic pilgrims can take a funicular-style lift for 20 baht. It was built in 1383 by King Keu Naone to enshrine a piece of bone said to be from the shoulder of the Buddha. The bone shard was brought to Lanna by a wandering Monk from Sukhothai and it broke into two pieces at the base of the mountain. One piece being enshrined at Wat Suan Dok, the second fragment was mounted onto a sacred white elephant that wandered the jungle until it died, and in the process selecting the spot where the monastery was later founded. This temple offers magnificent views as it overlooks the city from its mountain throne.​

静静体验 一把

隐藏在森林里的一个寺庙,特别的幽静,绿意盎然,游客是特别少,本地人也不多,喜欢清静的朋友不要错过,整体感觉是很舒服的,很多佛像就藏在植物当中

注意保暖

冷!比山下低了好多度,穿着短袖短裤冻得起鸡皮疙瘩。还好借了根纱笼裹在腿上,不然真要冻死。难怪作为皇室的避暑行宫。建议去的朋友一定要穿长袖长裤。也许是因为当天雾太大吧,俯瞰清迈啥也看不清,花园也就那样,中国漂亮的花园实在太多,已审美疲劳。总之,觉得一般般啦

幽静禅意

看了携程的攻略才知道悟孟寺,这里没有团体游客,这里连自由性的游客都少,给人一种很有禅意的感觉。安静而详和,是我在清迈收获最大的地方。尤其是深邃的隧道,是清迈乃至其他泰国寺庙都不曾有的。特别特别幽静。
