OVERVIEW

Thailand continues to attract zillions of travellers from all around the world, from the backpacker to the luxury island seeker. Thailand depends on the tourist – and the country despite the strife that goes on within – recognizes the need for the infrastructure to support such an influx. Easy Immigrations, transportation infrastructure, trained tourism professionals, multitude of hotels and restaurants are quite the norm and it is only the most outrageous budget that will not find a holiday in the country.

Varied destinations mark the country. Bangkok the glitzy, high intensity capital city with a plethora of options for dining, shopping, drinking and clubbing; Pattaya the infamous getaway for the compulsive, Hua Hin the regal laid back beach town, Phuket with the beaches and nightlife overdrive, Samui for its serene luxurious beachside getaways, Chiang Mai in the North for the hills and Lanna traditions and so many more.

Golf in Thailand is a recent addition to tourism, but the quality and quantity of golf courses, support services and the infrastructure that have emerged have leapfrogged the country to one of the world’s top golf destination. And this is true for almost any place that one’d visit in Thailand.
