Thailand is one of the main golf destinations of the World. Here you can stay
at one place and play multiple golf courses for a week or two. Or you have the choice to combine
different locations in Thailand and neighboring countries and package a once in a life time
Hua Hin situated two and a half to three hours by car or bus from Bangkok airport,
is a small city by the sea with excellent beaches and high class resorts and hotels. Here you
can play not less than seven golf courses all situated within half an hours drive from your hotel.
Hua Hin is also perfect if not all in your party are golfers, as the town has many activities to
offer for the non golfer.
Phuket is another great alternative for a golfing holiday. Not only for the near to
perfect internationally designed golf courses on the Island, but also for the good accessibility
to the island. There are now many flights from cities in Western Europe direct to Phuket airport.
At arrival you only have about half to an hour’s transfer to your chosen hotel or resort.
Pattaya and Rayong are two cities only about two to three hours from Bangkok
airport. There are some very good golf courses in this area, and with lower green fees than what you would
pay in Hua Hin or Phuket.
Why not combine one of these alternatives with one of the lesser known golf destinations like
Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai in the mountainous north of Thailand, or Siam Reap
in Cambodia with the temples in Angkor Wat and two excellent golf courses, whereof one is
designed by Nick Faldo. Another suggestion would be the beach resort Phan Thiet in
Vietnam, also with two world class golf courses. These courses together with golf courses
in the surroundings of Saigon can be a golf tour by itself.
Last but not least the Destination of the Year, Burma. Here you can play within ancient
ruins at Bagan Nyang Oo Golf Club in Bagan, a town like Siam Reap in Cambodia famous for
their extensive temple ruins from old times. Combine Bagan with Mandalay, Yangon or Ngapali Beach
for a very special tour in Burma.
