Morning Arm Giving- Doi Suthep Temple and Mae Sa Elephant Camp (Private Tour)

Alms or alms-giving is a religious rite which, in general, involves giving materially to another as an act of religious virtue.

It was truly one of the highlights of experience Alms Giving and to learn about Thai Buddhism. This has to be done early in the morning because the monks must eat their food by midday. Witnessing this is certainly a must when visiting Thailand.

Our next stop was Doi Suthep, the temple that sits high on a mountaintop and the gem of Chiang Mai.

Sightseeing at some of the wonderful temples in, and around Chiang Mai? Many are hundreds of years old and Chiang Mai’s own Temple on the Mountain is Wat Doi Suthep – a beautiful golden temple, situated up the mountain at over a 1053 meters. Doi Suthep remains an important sight that first time visitors to Chiang Mai shouldn't miss.

After that we will go to Mae Sa elephant camp to see the lovely elephants. The daily show starts with the elephants bathing in a natural stream, then a talent show at the elephant show ground. Included in this is a demonstration of the various ways of getting up/down the elephants, musical talents show and dancing, elephants artist show.
