Chiang Mai
We have special prices at the award winning Rachamankha, and also great low rates at Chiang Mai Orchid. Many of Thailand's golf courses have adjoining hotels, most of which we would not recommend... however Mae Jo is an exception, an excellent hotel and we can offer great stay & play packages at Mae Jo Golf Resort. For the train journey of a lifetime take the E & O Oriental Express from Chiang Mai to Bangkok and even on to Singapore...  classical luxury travel. Recently one of our regulars went lake fishing in Chiang Mai to the the aptly named "Paradise Lake" .. one days fishing netted more than 250 kilos of Giant Chinese Carp and Mekong Catfish, the biggest one nearly 50 kilo's... so a great activity for a day off from golf. The fishing guides at this lake are very skilled and gaurantee to help you catch big fish. Chiang Mai has a lot more to offer than just golf and a perfect climate.  Cookery schools, excellent restaurants and live music, a wide range of soft adventures, elephants, temples and superb shopping with great value all round.  Conde Naste Travellers magazine recently voted Chiang Mai number two City in Asia in their annual awards.
