“Golf in Thailand is back on the map for many leisure Canadian golfers,” observed Silk Holidays’ Kenny Fan.
Fan pointed out that, “The recent growth of many championship standard golf courses and more world-class tournaments are being held in Thailand, along with affordable, superior services, modern facilities and course varieties are the main reasons why you should bring your clubs to enjoy a real golf holidays there.”
And he added that, “For being in such a culturally diverse region, golfers can also enjoy a good mix of sightseeing, beach staying and playing at the same time.”
Golf in Thailand provides a great mix of quality, service, fantastic weather and a good price. When golfing in Thailand (pictured above), caddies from each course played ensure every need is met, and provide a great addition to a golfer’s game when it comes to course knowledge and experience. From the moment you step out of your VIP transfer to the moment you leave the course, the caddies are there to ensure you have a five-star experience. Courses are kept to five-star international standards. All this is offered at prices which are far lower than what a round of golf at a similar course would cost in North America.
Golf in Thailand this winter from $3,799 p.p., tax included. Packages include air, accommodations, daily breakfast, rounds of golf, sightseeing, caddie and cart. Destination options are Chiang Mai & Chiang Rai, Koh Samui & Phuket and Bangkok & Hua Hin and available until October 2020.

Having operated small group treks in Nepal for more than 40 years, adventure travel specialist World Expeditions advises that there are plenty of ways to take in the majesty of Mount Everest and its surrounding mountainscapes without the crowds.
The following are ways to experience the beauty of Nepal and Mount Everest without crowds: Take an alternative route: A trek such as the Gokyo and the Renjo La will take you to an adjacent valley to the more popular Mount Everest route and is, in comparison, deserted. Trekkers still get to experience Sherpa culture and will gain panoramic views of Mount Everest compared to the base camp, as they are not that close.
Choose an exploratory trek: Go wild into the rugged and remote corners of Nepal and find peace and serenity knowing you and your trekking group are far from the crowds. Embark on an exploratory journey where few have been before and trek into regions that have not been walked commercially, such as the seldom visited Damodar region, near Mustang and Tibet.
Head to the Annapurna region: You will find more than a dozen walks in the Annapurna region, known for its winding mountain trails, colourful teahouses and spectacular mountain scenery. Often based out of Pokhara, Nepal’s second largest city, the Annapurna is at a much lower altitude than the Everest region, making for easier trekking and denser rhododendrons forests.
