Destination named as one of Lonely Planet's U.S. staff's top picks for 2010. Shown: The entrance to Doi Suthep, a temple atop a mountain near Chiang Mai, Thailand. Doi Suthep remains a functioning wat, a gorgeous Buddhist aerie where novice monks light candles each morning and whose chedi contains a relic of the Buddha.
