Khao Yai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is Thailand’s third largest and one of the most visited national parks. It spreads across four provinces, namely Saraburi (west), Nakhon Nayok (east), Nakhon Ratchasima (north) and Prachinburi (east). The highest peak, at Khao Rom, is 1,351 metres above sea level.
Blessed with a lush, mountainous landscape, with fertile valleys, pounding waterfalls and rich biodiversity, Khao Yai is a year-round getaway destination just three hours’ drive from Bangkok. The west side boasts a range of wild-west theme parks and vineyards of Thailand’s award-winning labels, such as Pirom Khao Yai Reserve and Sawasdee Chenin Blanc. The south and east are peppered with a wealth of natural wonders, from Prachinburi’s jungle-clad waterfalls to Wang Nam Kheo’s ozone-rich valleys.
Play at top golf courses in the Khao Yai area!
Escape from busy Bangkok and enjoy golf in Khao Yai among beautiful mountain scenery, cooler temperatures, and a relaxing and clean environment. Khao Yai is a world apart from the other better known Thailand golf destinations. The whole area has an alpine feel to it. This is not just because it’s hilly and cooler than the central Thai plains, but also because it sports dairy herds, numerous chalets, and vineyards and wineries.
Khao Yai is Thailand’s oldest and second largest National Park covering an area of more than 2000 square kilometers and sports mountains over 1300 meters in height. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and lies in the mountain range just east of Bangkok. There’s plenty to do other than play golf in Khao Yai so be sure to include some exploring of the area around your golf resort.
