Visiting Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai area

Posted by Sknew on 31/1/2017 at 19:37

Hi all. I planned a day trip to see, finally, Doi Suthep. But the costs of transportation seem to vary widely depending on the source. I'd prefer to hire a taxi with A/C for half a day. I'd use this for Wat Buak Krok Luang, Wat Suan Dok, and then Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Ratchawarawihan (the main attraction).

Where can I negotiate this deal, and what would be fair? I really dislike songtaews, they tend to give me headaches and take forever.

Note I will start this trip from Lampang. Would it make more sense to hire the taxi from there? That would make this a full day, I would think. Still, it seems that Chiang Mai prices are unusually high.

Finally, do I supply the gas money for these trips?

Any help you could offer would be much appreciated!!
