Explore Northern Thailand by Scooter


It's no secret that the best way to explore Thailand is by scooter. You can go wherever you'd like and stop whenever you want - plus, it's cheap! Chiang Mai is a beautiful city and much more, the temples, pagodas and stupas are amazing. 



Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep


Doi Suthep is located up in the mountains about 30 minutes from the city-center of Chiang Mai. It is one of the most busiest temples I've been to. There are tons of food stalls and locals selling all kinds of goods, from clothing to souvenirs right outside of the temple. Be prepared to climb 309 steps to reach the entrance. There's an entry fee, but you can also enter through the walkway from the right side, near the restrooms.

I was in awe as I entered the pagoda. The golden structures are so mesmerizing that I couldn't stop admiring the beauty. 


Wat Suan Dok is located in the city-center of Chiang Mai. The white washed mausoleums attracted me to visit the site, until I realized they were structures that housed cremation ashes of people from the royal family in Chiang Mai. Nevertheless, it was a nice change from Doi Suthep. I was basically the only one there aside from the monks and locals working.
