OVERVIEW

One of the most popular destinations in Thailand, Pattaya is conveniently close to the Suvarnabhoomi Airport in Bangkok at less than a 2 hour drive. Although renowned for its raunchy nightlife, there are several attractions on offer to the discerning tourist that include sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling etc.

A distinct advantage of being a popular destination for all nationalities is that one is never too far away from food that goes with your palate. Add to it the comfort and ease of getting around; it really is a convenient place to go to. With a good supply of supporting infrastructure including hotels of varying budgets, transportation, a holiday in Pattaya is as affordable as it can get.

Golf in Pattaya has become a key ingredient in the mix that this destination has to offer, with several world class championship golf courses by renowned designers accessible and within a short drive from the heart of the city.

The beauty of all this is that, one can really pick and choose the stay and golf options based on a budget and if there are non-golfers accompanying, there is plenty for them to see and do while the golfers are at it.

BEST TIME TO GOLF IN PATTAYA: The best time to visit Pattaya is between November and March when the temperatures are lower, less humidity and rainfall is also less though the temperatures throughout the year do not change much and averages around 30 degrees C. March to May is hot and June to October is the wet season but that still doesn’t stop visitors who like to take advantage of the low season rates and thin crowds. Rains during the monsoon months are usually night rains or 30 minute downpours and are not necessarily very disruptive.

Type of Climate: Tropical Monsoon climate
