Today we brought a visit to Wat Umong and wat Doi Suthep. Wat Umong is located at the foot of the hill and is a little bit hidden in the forest. There were a lot of monks praying at the time we visited, because there was some kind of ceremony. If you want to visit Wat Umong please be sure to wear insect repellant!! Because they will eat you alive here.
Hereafter we went to Doi Suthep, which is located at the top of the mountain. We went there with our motorbike. It was a long curvy way to the top of the hill. But there are some great spots on your way up where you can see the whole city of Chiang Mai. The wat itself is very nice for taking pictures. You can also see the whole city of Chiang Mai from the top. After a brief visit we continued our way up. The road became more narrow and you will see more locals and less tourists. You can have some good food across the palace and there’s also a little market.
To finish our day we visited a Muay Thai training, located in the night bazar district of Chiang Mai.
