A personal destination review from John Blanch General Manager at Thai Country Club.
Bangkok is one of the best destinations for a golf holiday in the Asia Pacific region. The capital of Thailand boats one of the regions busiest airports, Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airport, which are frequented by hundreds of airlines from most major airports in the world. There is an abundance of hotel options to select that will satisfy the most discerning traveler – from budget boutique hotels all the way to the ultra-luxurious which are far more affordable than their sister properties elsewhere in Asia and every type of option in between.
What is there not to do in Bangkok – Golden palaces, floating markets, majestic temples, incredible roof top bars, a seemingly endless choice of dining options to satisfy every taste and amazing nightlife. Savor mango sticky rice at a food stall before taking in the gilded splendor of the Grand Palace you’ve never seen a capital city quite like Bangkok.
And then comes the golf with a myriad of fantastic golf courses from championship courses such as Thai Country Club, Alpine Golf Club, Nikanti Golf Club and others whose fairways have been trod by Tiger, Sergio and others to more humbler courses which are just as much fun to play. Bangkok is also the perfect place to either start or end a golfing trip should you choose to venture to Hua Hin, Pattaya or Chiang Mai with a game on day of arrival into or departure from Thailand.
Bangkok is one of the most spectacular and fascinating cities in the world offering incredible value for money and the opportunity to play some of the finest golf courses that Thailand has to offer.
