Bangkok Golf Experience

Bangkok, known as the City of Angels, is the capital of the Kingdom and the most vibrant city in the country. Known for its nightlife and fast-paced lifestyle, there are many different activities for visitors to experience. Golf in Bangkok is also excellent, with some of the best golf courses being located in and around the metropolis.

When not on the golf course, Bangkok provides for some fantastic cultural, culinary and exciting activities such as the Grand Palace and temple of the Emerald Buddha, a tuk-tuk ride through Old Bangkok, a trip up the Chao Phraya river and some excellent bars and nightclubs for those who are looking for a nightcap. Being the main arrival point for most international flights and in the center of most other golf destinations in Thailand, golfing in Bangkok is a great way to start or end a golf experience in Thailand.
