A tour along this route begins with a visit to Wat Chet Yot (Wat Photharam) whose pagoda is in the same style as the one in Buddha Gaya in India, Chiang Mai National Museum where works of art of Lanna-Thai are kept, then on to the Tribal Research Centre in Chiang Mai University where a collection of interesting cultural objects of northern hill tribes are displayed, Chiang Mai Zoo where, on 531 rai (210 acres) of woody land at the foot of Doi Suthep, one can see a lot of fauna and flora, both native and foreign, Huai Kaeo Cascade, a pleasant place for picnics and the statue to Khru Ba Siwichai, a most reverend monk who constructed the road up to Wat Phra That on Mpunt Doi Suthep.
Then visitors can follow the zigzag road up the mountain to Wat Phra That, where a relic of the Buddha is enshrined. Six kms. from Wat Phra That further up the mountain stands the Royal Winter Palace (Bhubing Palace) with plenty of colourful, exotic flowers. It is open on Fridays, weekends and public holidays, except when the Royal Family is in residence, usually in January. Then the tour ends with a visit to the Meo (Hmong) village at Doi Pui to see the life of the tribesmen and to buy souvenirs from them.
