“Great Wat to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Wat Phra That Doi Kham is a great temple to visit. We went on a weekday, very few people so easy to look around. We drove up and parked the car but there is also the option to walk the steps - these seemed to be very steep and a lot of them! There is a very good view over Chiang Mai and I would thoroughly recommend a visit here.

Living in Chiang Mai I would certainly take any visitors to this temple rather than the one at Doi Suthep.

Just do not miss this temple. The walk up is beautiful and meditative, and the views from the top are great!

“One of the best temples in chiang Mai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Beautifully preserved and with an amazing view over the city. Rent a scooter, tuk tuk, taxi, but please come. The place is amazing, you'll get great photos and it's not very crowded.
