Doi Suthep is a constant part of life in Chiang Mai. A Thai saying goes, "If you haven't tasted Khao Soi or seen the view from Doi Suthep, you haven't been to Chiang Mai." This regal mountain overlooks the city from the northwest, providing commanding views from its summit. Aside from its dominating presence on the horizon, Doi Suthep is the home of some of the most deeply loved symbols in the Kingdom.

Phuping Palace is the Royal winter residence of the Thai Royal Family. It is located in the mountains outside Chiang Mai where temperatures are lower than in town and the atmosphere is more moist. The Palace that was completed in 1961 is also used to receive guests of the Royal Family.

Wish we could have done this. We scheduled ahead of time but never been to Chiang Mai so wasn’t able to schedule the right time and no switching or refund so missed out. Check your hotel before buying ahead of time

After spending a few weeks in Chiang Mai, my husband and I felt a duty to make the trip to Doi Suthep. The gardens were our favorite part, the temple wasn't too exciting for us. One big tip I have is that once you get to the temple, use Uber to get to the gardens. It was cheaper and much faster than the red trucks. The Red Truck from the zoo takes you to the temple, then you have to switch trucks, but wait for them to fill it, which was taking forever, so we called an Uber, and it was cheaper! Uber up and down the mountain is too expensive.

The king's winter palace is definitely a must-see if you're in Chiang Mai. Easily done as a day trip combined with the nearby hill tribes museum and Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep. The buildings are impressive and in the local style, and the gardens are great to look at and to walk around. Regulations state that you cover your shoulders and knees, and they provide clothing for this. There's also a few small restaurants outside which are handy if you're there at a meal time

Jerzy G ,

The visit to this palace is limited to the walk through the gardens and park but it is definitely worth the time and money. The rose garden is one of the largest and most abundant with different rose species. During the blossoming period it is really beautiful. The park is great, with the artificial lake and fountains, which unfortunately did not work during our visit. 50 THB per person is not much for the location. Avoid the hotest hours of the day... To get there you can take the tour or hire a red tqaxi from Chiang Mai. Tuk-tuks are not allowed on the road there as it is pretty steep and with many sharp curves. The visit can be combined with the visit to the Hmong village and Wat Phra That Doi Suthep as a half day tour for around 800 THB.

As part of our excursion to Wat Phra Tat Doi Suthep, there was a visit to the Bhubing Palace, which acts as the Thai royal family's retreat when visiting Chiang Mai.

We took a red pick up truck taxi from Chiang Mai University here and Doi Suthep (140 baht round trip). You can walk around the grounds of the Palace but they don't allow visitors inside any of the buildings. There is a nice indoor garden with a small waterfall and orchids. There is also a huge banyan tree and giant bamboo that were unique sights to see. They have clothing rental if you are not properly dressed.

This is a home used by the King when he is in the Chiang Mai area, but he rarely travels there so it is open to the public most of the time. There are beautiful grounds and gardens for you to walk around and enjoy. A great place to relax and just enjoy the sights around you. The Bhuping Palace is not far from Doi Suthep and I would recommend that you take in both places if you book a trip. Book trips through your hotel; taxis are not expensive and they will wait for you at both attractions. We booked the little red bus and it was great. It closes at 4pm so make sure you can get there no later than 2:30 to enjoy all it has to offer.

If you have time to spare on your Doi Suthep trip, then take a songthaew from there for 40 Baht up to the Palace. The grounds are very pretty, and this is where the King often stays when in Chiang Mai

JamHam ,
In Thailand, when an attraction is associated with the royal family, it is done in a wonderful way. Bhubing Palace is the winter residence in Chiang Mai for the royal family and State visitors. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with rose gardens, and a multitude of orchids and other flora along with manicured grounds. Take the time to slowly walk and enjoy the area. This is a wonderful spot on Doi Suthep.
JandJBelfast ,
We have travelled in Thailand for many years and this was one of our highlights. We came across it by accident. We rented a car in Chiang Mai and were tootling about and drove up towards Doi Suthep. It was a bit cooler and the plants were amazing. Lots of nature, butterflys, lizards, squirrels etc. don't forget long pants and cover for shoulders. (You can rent them for 15 B). Although it is hilly, no big deal! You can get a bus if you feel lazy. The variety of plants was incredible. Well looked after, no littler, plenty of toilets. If you like gardens don't miss this place.
GeoffandNiki ,
This half day tour gave a good balance between receiving lots of information from our guide on the way there, but also free time in the Palace gardens and in the temple to see everything at our own pace. Good value and excellent transport option.
Daniel I ,
The visit consisted in the palace plus the temple. The first one is interesting if you like gardens, although they are not that wonderful as others. The temple is definitively worth visiting with some views of Chiang Mai. Regarding to the person in charge of guiding us, during the first visit to the Summer palace we were on our own as she went with another part of the group to visit a tribe (?). She did great during the temple visit.
Ayshen A ,
This temple is stunning and covered in gold. Our tour guide talked us through the history of it and we were able to wonder through the gardens and temple. We gave a donation to be able to have some flowers and candles for an offering. This felt very spiritual. Go early to avoid crowds and heat. Go prepared with covered shoulders and knees although they supply things for you to borrow.
Amar Koul 🇸🇬 ,
Khun Moon brought me around to see the area around Doi Suthep. She was very flexible in the way she handled the tour and I enjoyed her company & professionalism very much. I would highly recommend this company for your next trip to Thailand!
