Tonight the group will stay at Sokha Angkor Hotel, Siem Reap. Golfers will look forward to playing tomorrow at Phokeethra Country Club, past host of the Cambodian Open and regular stop on the Asian Tour. A combination of Paspalum grasses are used on both fairways and greens, which gives the golf course its deep green color and ensures a high standard of course conditions all year round.
 
Non-golfers won’t be standing by waiting for the round to finish! They will visit Lake Tonle Sap and explore by boat the area’s unique floating villages and fishing communities. Floating villages dot the semi-submerged forest that lines the rim of the lake – an excellent glimpse of rural Cambodia and a rich ecosystem supporting hundreds of fishing communities and abundant birdlife.
 
The afternoon is to be free at own leisure to relax by the pool or catch-up on some photo opportunities around town.

“Goodbye Thailand, Hello Vietnam!”
 
PerryGolf’s guests on our golf tour through Asia – Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia – have enjoyed three great days in Bangkok, capital of Thailand. Day 1 included a private river cruise on the Chao Phraya River to visit the Temple of Dawn and the Temple of the reclining Buddha, with return by a fleet of fast longtail boats through the canal network of Bangkok.
 

 
The group has enjoyed golf at Riverdale Golf Club and Thai Country Club, two of the finest golf venues of the Thai capital. The quality, conditioning, and service levels of these venues are exceptional. The Asian caddie experience is always a big part of the day. Here are a few photographs from the tour to date.

PerryGolf’s Thailand, Vietnam & Cambodia escorted tour commences today in the Thai capital of Bangkok, with our guests arriving by just some of the many available air routes. First stop is the Anantara Riverside Resort, a beautifully relaxed location on the banks of the Chao Phraya River.
 
Our tour will take in four destinations over twelve days, with golf on eight of the region’s finest courses, plus a number of great sightseeing opportunities. This is a fascinating part of the world. It’s rich and sometimes dark history combines with an outstanding modern hospitality experience, it’s standards amongst the finest in the world. What a great opportunity to ‘Play the Game.

On an impromptu game at the beautiful Chiang Mai Highlands Golf Club, Colin Dalgleish made up a fourball with a Scot residing in Australia, a Singaporian residing in the UK Channel Islands, and a Thai residing in Bangkok …. what other sport might that happen in? Play the Game. See the World. .. never truer!

“Hua Hin”
 
In advance of hosting our upcoming trip to Thailand, Vietnam & Cambodia, PerryGolf’s Colin Dalgleish made an inspection trip to the Thai resort city of Hua Hin, just a three hour drive southeast of Bangkok on the Gulf of Thailand.
 
Hua Hin has long been the favored resort of the Thai Royal Family, and in 2013 received the prestigious Golf Destination of the Year Award for Asia and Australasia at the International Golf Travel Market. It boasts a number of outstanding courses, most notably the world top 100 Black Mountain, but also including gems such as Banyan, Seapine Golf Course, and the charming Royal Hua Hin, dating back to 1926 and built by Scottish engineers who were working to create the railroad system at the time.
