7. Tour to the Doi Saket Market & Wat Phra That Temple

Everyday evening in downtown Doi Saket there is a nice street market where you can find lots of clothes, local products and produce on offer, as well as ready-to-eat meals and snacks to take home. There are many shops, banks, and services downtown, like Jampha Supermarket, 7-Eleven, and Tesco-Lotus where you can purchase not just convenience items, but many household staples and pantry items.The nearest big box store is the HomePro shopping center on the outer Chiang Mai ring road (Route 121) in San Sai about 13 km or 15 minutes from downtown Doi Saket. HomePro is an excellent store like Home Base or Home Depot combined with a Walmart or Target. In the HomePro shopping center you will also find a small Rimping supermarket which is (at the moment) the “Western-focused” grocery store closest to Doi Saket.

The Wat Phra That temple is said to have been built in 1112, as legends say that the Lord Buddha arrived in Doi Saket for a short visit. He was visited by the Naka, and he offered his hair for worship purposes. Afterwards, the Lord Buddha disappeared, which resulted in the building of the temple.

The interior walls have been painted with magnificent Buddhist murals by an artist known as Khun Chaiwat Wannanon back in the early ’90s, which makes the temple unique because it is rare for any temple in Thailand to have any modern art.

Many find the style of the temple to be similar to that of Doi Suthep, except that this one is smaller. The entrance here features a steep staircase which leads visitors to the temple. However, the most prominent aspect of the temple is the majestic golden Buddha statue which is visible as far as the road outside that leads to the temple. A monastic school is also found within the temple grounds.

Unlike other temples in the area, this one is special because it’s less touristy, so you won’t have to share the space with hundreds of other travellers. A small museum is also found here, depicting the colourful past of the district.

9. Motorbike trip to sticky waterfall (Bua Thong Waterfalls)

One of the most unique places in Thailand is called Bua Tong or the Sticky Waterfalls. These waterfalls are not only impressive and gorgeous, but a special feature allows you to climb directly up the rocks into the oncoming cascading water. 

Waterfalls are notoriously slippery. One usually goes down a waterfall thanks to gushing waters and slick surfaces. So how is it possible to climb up the Sticky Waterfalls?

The Sticky Waterfalls get their name from a mineral deposit that is incredibly grippy. In fact, the rocks feel like a hardened sponge. They are callous and even slightly prickly to the touch but surprisingly give a bit under pressure. Since no algae or slime adheres to the rocks, they are the perfect canvas to climb up the waterfall. These multi-tiered waterfalls are easy on the eyes and a great way to cool off in Thailand’s heat.

There are 2 route options, you can go highway which is a bit longer (58.6 km) but it is easy to drive, or you can take picturesque steep road through mountains. It can be a challenge especially if you would drive a motorbike.  

  • Type: Motorbike or car trip
  • Distance: One way 26.5 km or 58.6 km
  • Level: Advanced
