Cambodia Danang Golf Week August 2017
2-12 August 2017 in Siem Reap, Cambodia and Danang, Vietnam
Present day Cambodia is a peaceful and welcoming country that has retained the style of its former French colony heritage and mixed it with indigenous cultural charm to completely redevelop itself and regain its proud title as ‘The Pearl of Asia’.
The past decade has seen a flourishing tourist industry with some three million visitors per year enjoying a full range of cultural and luxury travel experiences. And golf is proving to be an increasingly important part of that package.
Siem Reap is the golfing centre of Cambodia. There are three international standard courses located in this friendly town, and with the magnificent temples of Angkor in close proximity, Cambodia is proving to be a ‘must visit’ destination. Nestled between rice paddies and stretched along the Siem Reap River, the provincial capital of Siem Reap City serves as the gateway to the millennium-old ruins of Angkor – the Angkorian-era Khmer Empire.
Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Angkor Archaeological Park encompasses dozens of temple ruins including Bayon, Ta Prohm and the legendary Angkor Wat whose artistic and archaeological significance and… visual impact put it in a class with the Pyramids, Machu Pichu and the Taj Mahal.
Golf in Vietnam is an experience to remember for a lifetime. From short breaks at championship Vietnam golf courses to explorations of golf, history and culture, Vietnam now has it all. One of the best up-and-coming golfing destinations in the world, the country is dynamic, safe, and affordable. From the excitement of modern Saigon to the thousand-year-old streets of Hanoi, from the sea and sand in Danang and Hoi An to the mountain fresh air of Dalat, the choices are endless.
Recently, Vietnam was named as the “Undiscovered Golf Destination of the Year” by the International Association of Golf Travel Operators (IAGTO). With its fascinating history, ancient culture, superb climate, and now its offering fantastic championship golf courses designed for the golfer on and off the course. Vietnam is the ‘next Thailand’ when it comes to golf tours in the Far East.
