Touring Chiang Mai
The highway tour continues where the road starts from just after Doi Suthep...
After this turn you'll pass a closed gate on the right. This isn't the entrance you want so keep on riding!
The road will narrow by about a third and you'll go past some nice looking houses, finally you'll pass to the left in a loop then you'll come to a short rise. Welcome to the palace!
Road Lore: If you continue to go past the palace, the road will eventually take you very close to the actual summit of Doi Suthep and then onto Doi Pui, The highest point of the mountain. The road does no stop there though but continues on, eventually reaching Ban Khun ChangKaen.
