• Overview

    Asia in February is becoming a permanent fixture and rightly so, such is the charm, warmth and wonderful culture of the Orient.  In the past we have traveled to China, Vietnam and Thailand.

    For 2014 we will take in three Countries, albeit they are all quite close to one another.  The tour will commence in Langkawi in Malaysia, a wonderful tropical island with superb beaches, jungle and of course golf courses. From Langkawi we head to Siem Reap in Cambodia, home to the world renowned Angkor Wat temples, which are laced with culture and history.

    Langkawi - More Info.

    From Cambodia we head west to Thailand, where we will firstly stay in Pattaya and play some of the best courses in Thailand, before moving onto one of the most charismatic cities in the world, Bangkok.  As with recent long haul tours we are providing the four destinations as four individually priced segments, in order that you can book either the full tour or different elements of the trip.  I very much hope that you will be able to join me for what I am sure will be a quite enchanting tour of South East Asia.

    Langkawi is an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. Surrounded by turquoise sea, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills.

    The Els Club Teluk DataiEls Club
    The Els Club Teluk Datai is one of the world’s most uniquely captivating golf projects. Designed as a tribute to nature, the Els Club Teluk Datai course meanders its way through a million year old rainforest, cascading down to the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea and is overlooked by the marbled limestone peaks of the Mat Cincang Mountain range. With natural streams flowing throughout the golf course, it will be easy for us to lose focus on our game, as we are immersed in such a serene environment.  The Els Club Teluk Datai certainly sets the standard for the tour.

    Exploring Langkawi
    Today we head inland to the famous Mat Cincang Mountains for a half day sightseeing tour.
    Gunung Mat Cincang is probably Langkawi’s best-known mountain, aside from its neighbour Gunung Raya.  At 850m high, it is the second highest mountain in Langkawi and offers spectacular views of the island.  It is home to the famous cable car that carries passengers 709m above sea level to the apex of the mountain.  Besides enjoying the spectacular views of the forested and craggy sides of Mount Cincang, on a clear day one can see all the way to the mainland and southwest Thailand.

    The Els Club Teluk Datai
    We return today to the superb Els Club Teluk Datai.  The vision was to preserve and enhance the natural environment, while creating a unique luxury and educational eco-tourism golf experience.  From the array of natural flora and fauna, the course was designed with strict environmentally friendly guidelines and is seeking Audobon Certification, an award winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect the environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf.  A unique project, a wonderful golf course and two rounds of golf that I am sure will live long in our memories.
