Day 2 : Pattaya
Golf is one of the most popular sports in Thailand. The game arrived in the county a century ago and was quickly taken up by the elite and the fashion. Among the first sponsors of the game were the armed forces and government institutions, which built and continue to own some of the finest courses in the county.
There are over 200 high standard golf courses nation wide, many of them are the championship standards. The world's top designers have made a significant contribution. Jack Nicklaus, Roboert Trent Jones Jr, Pete De Gar Player and many others have perfected modern layouts, using the best grasses and latest techniques.
The best time to plan a golfing trip is the cool season, from November to March. From April to October, is hot and wet, but even in the rainy months the downfall usually comes in the afternoon, and for only a few minutes. Most courses have good drainage systems, and the rains should not interrupt your game for long. At some facilities you may need to book ahead, through your club or your hotel, and advance booking is recommended for weekends. Greens fees continue to be very reasonable, as are the fees for caddies.
The vision is aimed to provide entertainment to clienteles by showing the unique concept of being Thai to foreigners. Instead of presenting a traditional Thai performance where easily found anywhere, a new concept was applied by using a modern style of dance combined with multi-dimension colored laser, lighting and real surround sound system.
