When it comes to finding a golf holiday destination that merges sun, style, a modern vacation environment, and quality golf courses, Thailand really is a premier location. Thailand is first and foremost one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world and literally has something for everyone. Couple that with its eclectic golf course options and you have one of the world’s best golf holiday destinations.

Did you ever think of organizing a golf holiday across a few different locations in Thailand?

Let us give you some information in regards to putting together multiple tier golf holidays in Thailand with the main emphasis on:

- Phuket, Krabi and Phang Nga

- Bangkok & Pattaya

- Bangkok, Pattaya and Hua Hin

At Thailand Golf Deals, we want to give you some valuable information on how you can make the most from your Thailand golf holiday and where are the best places in Thailand to play golf while at the same time having the holiday of a lifetime.

Playing Golf in Southern Thailand at Phuket, Krabi and Phang Nga

When you see those picturesque postcard type photos that showcase the stunning tropical beaches and clear blue oceans in Thailand, they are usually from Southern Thailand. The three most prominent holiday destinations in Southern Thailand are Phuket, Krabi and Phang Nga. You can organize a golf holiday that combines a few days in each location to get more from your Thailand golf holiday experience.

Not only are these three regions the best in terms of beaches, bars, hotels and holiday style amenities, but also have some top-notch golf courses. You can combine a golf holiday between the three destinations if you desire to get the best of both worlds. Here is a breakdown of each destination:

Golf Holidays in Phuket

Perhaps the most famous holiday destination in Thailand, outside of Bangkok, is Phuket Island. Known for its palm-fringed beaches, crystal blue waters, 5-star resorts, and cool nightlife scene, Phuket is one of the most desirable holiday destinations in the world. When it comes to playing golf in Phuket, there is a myriad of choices.

Some of the most popular places to holiday in Phuket are Patong, Karon, Kata, Nai Harn, Kamala, Surin and Rawai.

When it comes to golf courses, Red Mountain GC and The Canyon Course at Blue Canyon are the two championship courses on the island. Other courses such as Mission Hills Phuket, Laguna Phuket Golf Club, Loch Palm Golf Club and Phuket Country Club offer a more forgiving round, while still being a challenge.

Nobody merges a first-rate holiday destination and top-notch tropical golf quite like Phuket.

Phang Nga Golf Holidays

Located approximately a 2-hour drive from Phuket Island, Phang Nga is located on the way to Krabi and is quite possibly the most beautiful place in Thailand. Famous as the home of Phang Nga Bay and the even more famous James Bond Island, when you see stunning photos of limestone karsts jutting out of see-through waters, they are usually taken in Phang Nga.

Phang Nga is basically a peaceful fishing town and is not so exciting in terms of modern holiday amenities, but it is a great place to use a hub to visit outlying islands such as James Bond and Phi Phi.

Although Phang Nga might not have a vast choice of golf course options, the main course in the region is the Katathong Golf Resort and it is simply stunning. The course is relatively new but has a modern tropical layout with some really challenging holes.

Krabi Golf Holidays

Krabi is one of the main tourist areas in Southern Thailand and is the place you normally go to book a holiday to Phi Phi island or to relax amidst the stunning Tropicana. Krabi is approximately a 4-hour drive from Phuket and actually has its own international airport. The region is known for its dreamy beaches and 5-star holiday amenities.

The best areas to stay for a golf holiday in the region are Krabi Town and the beautiful Ao Nang. The small tourist town of Ao Nang is home to lots of high-end resorts such as Centara and other branded hotels, and also has a great choice of Western-style restaurants and beer bars that are ideal for foreign tourists. This is the most highly recommended place to star for you Krabi golf holiday experience.

When it comes to Krabi golf course options we would suggest that you play the newly established Hula Hula Golf Club, which is a very convenient and affordable golf course and ideal if you are staying in Ao Nang.

If you want to book a Thailand golf holiday in Southern Thailand, combining golf courses in Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi, it really is a great expense.

Playing Golf in Bangkok, Pattaya and Hua Hin

If you want a Thailand golf holiday experience that is very convenient and affordable merging world-class holiday destinations, combining golf holiday experiences across Bangkok, Pattaya and Hua Hin is a great move.

As Bangkok and Pattaya are just a 2-hour drive from each other, it makes complete sense to combine the two. However, if you are also looking to add a different element to your Thai golf holiday experience, a three-pronged golf holiday across Bangkok-Pattaya and the seaside town of Hua Hin is also a very interesting idea.

Pattaya and Hua Hin are now linked together by a new ferry link, which is a great way to merge the two destinations together for a golf holiday. We can even book your tickets for you.

Here is our rundown of booking golf holidays across these three popular Thai golf holiday locations:

World-Class Pattaya Golf

Pattaya is perhaps the most exciting holiday destination in Thailand, known for its great nightlife scene and affordable prices. Playing golf in Pattaya can also be very affordable. With over 20 courses within a 45-minute drive of the city, Pattaya has the highest concentration of golf courses of any region in Thailand.

Alongside the vast golf course options in the Pattaya region, it is also one of the most interesting holiday destinations in Thailand. Located on the Eastern Seaboard in Central-Eastern Thailand, Pattaya sits right on the Gulf of Thailand and merges a tropical atmosphere with some of the most immense party-style holiday options.

Pattaya has more bars than Las Vegas and is home to hundreds of international-style restaurants, numerous beaches and a wide variety of hotels and resorts to cater to all budgets and needs. Pattaya is also one of the most affordable places to holiday in Thailand.

From the 5-star championship courses at Siam Country Club and Leam Chabang, to the more affordable options such as Rayong Green Valley and Pleasant Valley Golf & Country Club, and everything in between, Pattaya is the ultimate golf holiday destination in Thailand. Couple this together with affordable accommodations, restaurants and nightlife prices, and Pattaya really is a special place to play golf.

With so many golf options in Pattaya, this is the perfect destination to merge with other places such as Bangkok and Hua Hin.

Bangkok Golf Holidays

Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world and is somewhere you must visit at some point in your life. Not only does Bangkok have everything you would expect from a world-class city, but also has some top-notch golf course options within a 45-minute drive of downtown.

Some of the most popular places to stay in Bangkok are along Sukhumvit Road towards the Soi 5 area or over towards Patpong Market and Khaosan Road. If you are looking to enjoy a spot of partying while you are here on your golf holiday, we would suggest the Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy areas of the city, although the aforementioned Khaosan Road is great for bargains.

Within a short drive of Bangkok, there are some top-notch golf courses you need to play. The Thai Country Club, Bangkok Golf Club, Riverdale Golf Club, and the Royal Golf and Country Club are some of the best. Other notable recommended Bangkok golf courses include Thana City Country Club, Lam Luk Ka GC, and the Alpine Golf Club Bangkok.

Bangkok is a place where you can party the night away, but by day can play some of the best golf courses in Thailand.

If you have a two-week golf holiday planned and wanted to play golf in the most convenient areas, merging a golf holiday between Pattaya and Bangkok is the ideal choice. You get to explore the stunning city atmosphere of Bangkok with the beachside yet commercial holiday style environment of Pattaya.

Hua Hin Golf Holiday Options

Not so many people outside of regular Thailand holiday visitors know about the Thai seaside town of Hua Hin. Located just a 4-hour drive south of Bangkok between the city and Koh Samui, this quaint beachside area is growing into a very popular alternative to some of the more trodden holiday paths in Thailand. And the best thing is… the region is home to some stunning courses.

 Hua Hin itself sits on the Gulf of Thailand and is home to a wide variety of top-notch resorts, lots of Western shopping and dining options and a cosmopolitan holiday atmosphere. The town was once predominantly a place where Bangkok residents would come for the weekend to get away from the city, but over the past 10-years has attracted more international tourists, which now makes it a popular tourist destination with Westerners.

The Hua Hin and Cha-am areas are home to some of Thailand’s best golf courses such as Black Mountain Golf Club and the Banyan Golf Club. The main mid-range golf courses in the region are the Lake View Resort & Golf Club, Majestic Creek Country Club and Palm Hills GC. The stunning countryside that surrounds the town of Hua Hin makes this one of the best places in Thailand for a scenic round of golf.

Merging a two-tier golf holiday between Bangkok and Hua Hin makes perfect sense if you want to mix a city experience with a quaint Thai seaside vibe, a golf holiday in both Bangkok and Hua Hin is a real treat.

Other Thailand Golf Options to Consider

If you are looking to do something completely different, you could merge one of the above golf holiday locations with Chiang Mai. Although it would be a plane ride from Pattaya, Bangkok, Phuket to Chiang Mai, this is another option you need to consider. Please see more about playing golf in Chiang Mai below:

Beautiful Rounds of Golf in Chiang Mai

One of the most up and coming regions in Thailand for golf holidays in the northern Thai region of Chiang Mai. Known as the arts and cultural center of the Kingdom and for its stunning countryside and mountainous backdrops, Chiang Mai is such a beautiful holiday location.

We have recently launched a website devoted to golf in Chiang Mai that offers some of the most affordable green fees. Come to Chiang Mai to enjoy first-rate courses such as the Chiang Mai Inthanon Golf Club and Chiang Mai Highlands Golf Club, both of which are perched on mountainsides and offer some of the most spectacular golf course views in Thailand.

The city itself is known as a cool place for artists and those who enjoy culture. The trendy bars and museums make Chiang Mai one of the most unique places in Thailand for a holiday.

There are so many choices when it comes to playing golf in Thailand. You are not limited or restrained to a single location. You could visit any one of the multiple locations above to play golf and have a fantastic time. It’s up to you to decide what you are looking for.

At Best Tee Times, we want to ensure you get the most from your Thailand golf holiday to not just play the best courses, but also get the best from your time in the Land of Smiles. With so many beautiful holiday and golf locations across the Kingdom, it is important that you get some honest information before you book your Thailand golf holiday.

We have assembled a comprehensive Thailand golf and holiday Q&A that covers everything from playing golf to other important tidbits of information that will help you to not only have the holiday of a lifetime but also to understand more about Thailand in general.

Playing Golf in Thailand

We are going to start with the most important information – playing golf in Thailand. Check out these very informative questions and answers in regards to your Thailand golf options.

Q: At Best Tee Times, which areas in Thailand do you cover in regards to booking golf?

A: Our scope is right across Thailand with a special focus on Pattaya, Bangkok, Phuket, Hua Hin, and Chiang Mai golf.

Q: Is there a dress code when playing on Thailand golf courses?

A: There are, yes! As you know, etiquette on the golf course is one of the most important things about playing golf, and Thailand is no different. Men will need to wear golf shoes, socks, tailored pants or shorts, polo shirts with collars or a golfing T-short.

Women will need to wear golf shoes, socks, tailored shorts, pants or skirts, blouses or polo shirts with collars. As you know, it’s important to look the part when playing golf. Non-golfers will also have to fulfill the same requirements.

Q: Are caddies compulsory, even if I take a cart?

A: Yes, you will need to hire a caddy on every course. Caddies are a great feature of playing golf in Phuket as they will carry your clubs, assist you with distances and reading greens and will also repair divots and rake bunkers. Caddies cost approximately 300-400 THB. At the end of the round, you will also have to tip your caddy, which is currently around the 300-500 THB range for 18-holes, but how much you tip is generally down to you.

Q: Do Thailand golf courses have adequate showering and changing facilities?

Yes, all courses have changing/locker rooms. Because of the heat, you will be very happy to have a shower at the end of your round to freshen up a little bit.

Q: Do I need to rent a golf cart on all Thai golf courses?

A: Yes and no! It basically depends on which course you play. There is a compulsory cart rule on most championship standard courses throughout Thailand. Carts are available on most courses if you do not wish to walk around the courses. Courses have different rules so you need to check that beforehand if you want a cart.

Q: Is it possible to rent or purchase shoes and golf clubs on Thailand golf courses?

A: Yes it is possible. You will find pro-shops on most of Thailand’s golf courses, all of which stock lots of clubs and equipment for both sale and rental.

Q: What is the best time of year to play golf in Thailand?

A: We would suggest that if you want to the least humidity and rainfall, between November and March is the best time. Although the golf conditions are pretty good all year round.

Q: Are my family or friends allowed to follow me around the course even though they are not playing?

A: Yes, that is possible, but please remember that there is usually a fee for non-golfers and they are also expected to fulfill the dress codes of the courses just like every other golfer.

Q: Will I be needing a handicap to play golf in Thailand?

A: No, you don’t need one, although you will be expected to have basic knowledge of golf course etiquette.

Q: Is it possible to share my golf clubs with another player?

A: No, this is against course rules. Every club insists that there is one set of clubs per player. If your playing companion doesn’t have clubs, he can hire them from the pro-shop.

Q: If I am playing alone, will the club assist in finding me another golf to join in with?

A: Yes that will most probably happen anyway. Just ask the ‘Starter’ before you tee-off if you can join another group or if they can find you another golfer to join you. If you tell us beforehand, we can talk to the ‘Starter’ for you.

Q: If I want to book a tour, who can I trust to organize it for me?

A: If you are staying in a hotel, it is highly probable that there will be a tour desk in the foyer. If so, use it. If not, there are hundreds of tour kiosks scattered throughout all of Thailand’s major tourist destinations, and as the tours are generally standard across the board, you will not be ripped off.

 

Phuket Golf Holiday Q&A

One of the most popular places to play golf in Thailand is on the beautiful island of Phuket. The island is the ideal place to play golf because of its reputation as a top-notch holiday destination. Check out our Phuket golf Q&A below to find out more details.

Q: What is the best time of the year to book a golf holiday in Phuket?

A: Weather-wise, between December and the end of April is the best time of the year in terms of humidity, but it’s also the busiest time of the year too. Although between May and November can throw up a bit of rain here and there, it is a quieter time for the island’s courses, ensuring you will get the tee-off time you really want.

Q: I have only recently took up golf, which courses in Phuket would suit a beginner?

A: We would suggest as a beginner that you start out with courses such as Phuket Country Club and Laguna Phuket, and if you are playing well, maybe a round at Loch Palm would be a great way to finish off your Phuket golf experience.

Q: Can I rent golf clubs in Phuket, because I don’t want to traipse mine across the world?

A: Yes! All golf courses in Phuket have clubs available for rental, with prices slightly different depending on the quality and also which courses you rent them from.

Q: Are any courses in Phuket located near the major tourist destinations?

A: Phuket is a relatively small island, so no matter where you want to stay, every course can be reached within a 45-minute drive. Courses such as Laguna Phuket are situated in Surin/Bang Tao, which is a popular holiday location on the west coast. Loch Palm, Phuket Country Club and Red Mountain GC are all located in Kathu, which is just a 10-minute drive from Patong Beach, which is known as the island’s most popular holiday destination.

 

Thailand Holiday Questions

Coming on holiday to Thailand to play golf is an amazing experience, but let us help you to get the best from your holiday by giving you some valuable tips to enjoying a Thailand golf holiday.

Q: What is the voltage of electricity?

A: The voltage in Thailand is 220 volts, 50 cycles per second. Generally speaking, Thailand’s plug sockets are two-pronged, so bringing along a converter is a good idea, although you can actually purchase a converter in Thailand.

Q: Can I drink water directly from the tap in Thailand?

A: Nobody would recommend you to drink tap water in Thailand. Bottled water is so cheap, and is the best thing to drink in Thailand if you want to avoid an upset stomach. Even brushing your teeth with tap water is a no no.

Q: Are the dental services in Thailand of a high standard?

A: Yes! If you need any dental work done, we would advise that you take advantage of the excellent dental services in the kingdom. In most cases, they have the innovative technology that you would see in top quality dental practices in the western world, for a quarter of the price.

Q: What are the opening hours of banks and currency exchange services?

A: Commercial Banks

Hours of Operation: Monday – Friday (9:30am-3:30pm, except bank holidays)

Currency Exchange Services - Hours of Operation: 7 Days (8:30am-10:00pm)

Authorized Money Changers in hotels - Hours of Operation: 24-hour service

 

Q: Is every item I want to purchase in Thailand open to the bartering and haggling system?

A: The vast majority of goods you want to buy from the non-food markets are definitely open to bartering. Items that are on display in shopping centers and high-street stalls have fixed prices, so bartering isn’t needed.

Q: Can I use my credit cards when holidaying in Thailand?

A: Credit card usage is accepted in most upscale restaurants and in department stalls. Tailors will also accept credit cards. Restaurants at the cheap end of the scale normally only accept cash payment.

Q: What is the best form of transport to travel around Thailand?

A: It all depends on what you are looking for. Hiring a car is a great way to traverse the country in comfort and at your own pace, but if you are looking for the most cost effective method, the national bus services are very good. From Bangkok bus station, you can reach the four corners of the nation efficiently for great value.

Q: What happens if I can’t use the SIM card in my mobile phone from my home country in Thailand?

A: You can simply purchase a Thai SIM for as little as 100 baht. This will allow you to make cheap calls in the country at all times. You can obtain a Thai SIM card from one of the small mobile phone kiosks/shops you will see at street-side, or even from the 7/11.

Q: Are there any poisonous/dangerous animals or insects in Thailand?

A: Yes, there are a few poisonous animals in Thailand, although there are very few incidents that occur. Generally speaking, you will only come into contact with venomous creatures when in countryside or jungle environments. Thailand does have poisonous snakes, scorpions, jellyfish and centipedes, but 99.9% of travelers never have any problems.

Q: Is Thailand a safe place to walk at night?

A: You can find places within any country that aren’t safe. This is a sad fact of life. However, Thailand is one of the safest holiday destinations in the world to walk the streets at any time of the day or night. Use your common sense though, especially if intoxicated.

Q: In case of emergencies, what standard are the hospitals?

A: Bearing in mind you will have holiday insurance which covers medical bills from accidents or illness; you will most likely be treated in one of the nation’s international hospitals. This is ideal, because the international hospitals can be akin to glorified hotels with private rooms and extensive food menus. The facilities in Thailand’s international hospitals are more than likely better than those of your own country. They really are that good.

Q: Are supermarkets and shopping malls closed on Sundays?

A: No. All the major shopping malls and supermarkets are open 7 days a week.

Q: Will I need to speak Thai to get by?

A: In all the major tourist destinations such as Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai and Hua Hin, you will easily get by just using English. However, if you are travelling across the country through rural areas and Thai towns, you will struggle to converse, so some kind of translation book might be a good idea, just in case you find yourself in a squeeze.

We hope you found some valuable information in this article to not only get the best from your Thailand golf experience, but also to get the best from your entire holiday. There are so many things to see and do in Thailand, so it’s important you know the lay of the land.

Blue Canyon Country Club (Canyon Course)
19 Sep 2018

Thailand is one of the most visited holiday destinations in the world in its own right and is also one of the fastest-growing golf holiday destinations in the world. There is something magical about playing golf in Thailand. Maybe it is something to do with being able to merge a stunning sub-tropical holiday experience with some fantastic golf options.

There are so many reasons why people visit Thailand not just for a golf holiday, but a holiday in general. Here are 11 reasons why you need to book a Thailand golf holiday today. Believe us when we say it will be a choice you will never regret.

1. Thailand has the perfect climate for golf

Let’s be brutally honest here, as much as we love all the things about Thailand, if the Kingdom was located in the middle of Siberia, we would never go there on holiday. The all-year-round high temperatures that douse Thailand in the beautiful sunrays is always a massive factor for holidaying here. Because of the stunning climate, playing golf in Thailand is a very comfortable experience. The temperatures very rarely go under 30 degrees. The only places in Thailand that is not blistering hot all year round is in Chiang Mai in the North of the nation.

The best time of the year to visit Thailand with the least rainfall and humidity is between November and April. Between May and October, you might stumble into a bit of rain, but you will most definitely experience the humidity of what is now called ‘Green Season’. Playing golf between November and April is usually the best time to play in Thailand in terms of the least rainfall and humidity, but is also a time when the courses are at their busiest. Between May and October, you might get some rainfall, but the courses are relatively quiet, so it’s easy to get your desired course and tee-off time.

2. Affordable Thailand Holidays – Golf and Otherwise

Although since the world economic crash, the Thai baht has been very strong against Western currencies, Thailand is still a place of undoubted value for money. Whether we are talking about finding affordable golf courses or all the other things that create a holiday experience, Thailand pretty much has it all in terms of value. You can get yourself a hotel room with air-con in Thailand for as little as 500 THB per night. Extremely nice rooms in 5-star resorts can cost as little as 2,000 THB. Some of the best value in terms of accommodation is renting out a villa.

Some holiday villa rentals cost as little as 5,000 THB per night and have 4-beds that can sleep 8 people or 4 couples. Put this together with such cheap food, cheap shopping and much more, and Thailand is still one of the most affordable places in the world. When it comes to affordable Thailand golf, at Thailand Golf Deals, we offer some of the most competitive green fee prices in Thailand.

Because of the vast amounts of golf courses in the Pattaya region, the city is probably one of the cheapest golf holiday destinations in Thailand. Because there are 21 courses in a 45-minute drive of Pattaya, this has driven down the prices and is the cheapest place to play golf in Thailand with the most choice.

3. Diverse selection of Thailand golf holiday destinations

Thailand is widely known and loved across the world for its fascinating culture, earth-shattering cuisine, blood boiling temperatures, stunning natural wonders, its hedonistic nightlife charms and its relationship with the third gender, but not many people ever talk about Thailand golf. Why is that? Thailand should already be known as the ultimate place to visit for a golf holiday. Are people really more interested in exploring Buddhist temples, tampering with sultry go-go babes, getting smashed on alcohol or relaxing on stunning beaches? What is the world coming to? Thailand is a place that successfully merges many factors to create the ultimate golf holiday destination.

Not only does it have an eclectic choice of courses across the nation that suits every ability and budget, but the golf scene also leverages that famous Thai hospitality and intertwines it with your golf experience to take the service to the next level. If you choose to play golf in one of Thailand’s major tourist locations, you can also take advantage of a vast cacophony of hotels with all price ranges and all the local amenities such as top-notch international eateries, nightlife options, and world-class shopping. Some would say that playing golf in Thailand is like basking amidst the best holiday destination in the world that has a vast range of top-notch courses! And that’s exactly what it is!

If you are looking for a tropical-style Thailand golf holiday, we would recommend that you visit somewhere such as Phuket Island, Phang Nga or Koh Samui. If you are looking for somewhere that is a bit cooler but still offers top-notch courses and tourism amenities and options, we would highly-recommend you play golf in Chiang Mai. For affordable golf, nowhere in Thailand can beat the choice and prices in the Pattaya region. There really is a Thailand golf holiday destination for everyone.

4. Fantastic choice of golf courses in Thailand

Some people come to Thailand just to enjoy a golf holiday. Playing golf in Thailand is pretty amazing. There are some top-notch golf courses in Thailand in major tourist destinations such as Phuket, Pattaya, Bangkok, Phang Nga, Chiang Mai and Hua Hun. The nation has some stunning courses such as the courses at Siam Country Club in Pattaya, Red Mountain GC and Blue canyon Country Club in Phuket, Amata Springs in the Bangkok Countryside and Black Mountain in Hua Hin.

The courses are always in immaculate condition and you will get a Thai caddy, which means you won’t have to carry your own clubs or clean your own balls, which always gives me a bad back. From major championship courses that host international tournaments to small and laidback courses that offer affordable prices such as Emerald GC in Pattaya and the Phuket Country Club, there is a vast range of quality courses in Thailand for players of all abilities and budgets. Please click below to see all our golf course listings across Thailand’s major golf holiday destinations: Phuket Golf Courses Pattaya Golf Courses Chiang Mai Golf Courses Hua Hin Golf Courses Bangkok Golf Courses

5. Thai Golf and Holiday Hospitality

When it comes to hospitality, charm, and smiling faces, nobody does it quite like Thailand. The country is known as ‘The Land of Smiles’, and it really is infectious when you are enjoying a Thailand golf holiday. Whether you are turning up at a top-notch eatery, to a hotel or for a round of golf, there always seems to be a hoard of Thai females waiting to greet you like a long-lost explorer, hands clasped together while saying ‘Sawadee Ka’ in unison. It gets me every time! Hospitality is also something that is big on Thailand’s golf courses. One of the best parts about playing golf in Thailand is that at many courses it is mandatory to have a caddy.

A Thai caddy is usually a female who will carry your club, clean your balls and equipment and even give you tips about the layout of the course and the slopes on the greens. Generally speaking, caddy fees are usually between 300 and 400 THB. At the end of a round, a tip should be given to your caddy ranging between 300 to 500 THB depending on your experience with the caddy. Having your own caddy is one of the most unique things about playing golf in Thailand.

6. Thailand Nightlife

If you have never heard about Thailand’s infamous nightlife escapades, you have probably been living under a rock somewhere in Patagonia. Such a subject needs an entire article, or if written in a book needs an entire Hectare of an Amazonian rainforest. Whether you are in any of Thailand’s major holiday destinations such as Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya or Koh Samui, there is a fantastic selection of go-go bars, beer bars, nightclubs, theater shows, and live music venues. Some of the most popular Thailand nightlife areas are Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza and Khao San Road in Bangkok, Bangla Road in Phuket, Walking Street, Soi 6 and Soi Buakhao in Pattaya and the Fisherman’s Village in Koh Samui.

7. Amazing Thai Cuisine

Another great part about visiting the kingdom for a Thailand golf holiday is that you get to sample some of the finest and most unique dishes on the planet with the world-famous Thai cuisine. From famous and popular seafood dishes such as Tom Yam Goong (spicy shrimp soup) and all manner of fishes such as Grouper and Snapper to a wide variety of noodle and rice dishes, Thai food is stunning. Or maybe you want to push the boat out to try a Thai delicacy such as fried cockroaches, grubs, lava, fire ants, pigs blood and many more!

8. The Thai Island Holiday Experience

There is nothing that can match that ultra-special Thai island holiday experience. Whether you go the more commercial route of visiting the dreamy shores of Phuket or Koh Samui, or opt for other interesting and less-traveled islands such as Koh Lanta, Koh Chang or Koh Samed, the choice is amazing and the atmosphere is breathtaking. If you find yourself in Phuket or other Southern regions such as Phang Nga and Krabi, make sure you get out to the James Bond Island and Phi Phi with its surrounding isles that were the location of the Leonardo di Caprio movie, The Beach.

9. Beautiful Thailand Beaches

While you are here in Thailand playing golf, it only makes sense to take advantage of the beautiful beaches in Thailand that are some of the most picturesque in the world. The one thing that goes hand-in-hand with having copious amounts of sunshine is the beautiful beaches in Thailand. Some tourists come and stay in regions such as Krabi, Phang Nga, Phuket and Koh Samui just to bask on Thai beaches all day long to bronze their torsos. If you want any recommendations for beaches in Thailand, we would recommend Railay Beach in Krabi, which really does have to be seen to be believed. If you are in Phuket, we would recommend Nai Harn Beach, and if you are in Samui, not many beaches can compete with Maenam. Although Pattaya is not generally known for its beaches, Bangsaray Beach and the Thai Navy Beach at Sai Kaew are great choices.

10 - World-Class Diving Locations

Thailand literally has some of the best scuba diving sites in the world. Out in the waters surrounding Phi Phi Islands and Phang Nga, you will find awe-inspiring dive spots. Exploring the Andaman Ocean in Phuket, you will find the Similan Islands, which are known as one of the best dive locations in the world. In and around the Gulf of Thailand near Pattaya there are also some quality wrecks and reefs. Koh Lipe, Koh Lak and the Surin Island are just a few more islands that make Thailand a scuba diving paradise.
