There’s plenty of things to do in Bang Saray with amazing golf resorts, long beach fronts and festivals like The Loi Krathong Festival and the Electric Float Procession.
Golfing in Bang Saray
Pattaya/Jomtien is the largest beach resort in South East Asia. It’s skyline is dominated by modern sky scrappers and with more than 200 hotels and 25,000 rooms it offers an excellent choice for holidays at reasonable price. More than a million tourists descend upon Pattaya each year.
Golf is play all year round in delightful tropical climate, with charming caddies to carry your golf bag, beckoning drinks huts are strategically located every three or four holes to serve you cold beer or exotic tropical fruit drinks and impressive clubhouses offering full catering facilities throughout the day.
Located only 10 minutes drive away from Bang Saray is Phoenix Golf Club. With 27 beautifully manicured holes designed across Mountain, Lake and Ocean courses. This really is an exceptional course.
- Mountain Course Par 36 White Tee 3224 yards
- Lake Course Par 36 White Tee 3080 yards
- Ocean Course Par 36 White Tee 3196 yards
The developer’s choice of the site was excellent – beautiful undulating hillside country, with an existing cover of varied eucalyptuses, mature bamboo and low shrubbery. The course is quite elevated, with attractive distant sea hill views. It usually has cooling breezes off the sea. The massive clubhouse is a cavernous marble confection with internal pools and cascading waterfalls dominating the landscape.

Festivals and attractions
The Loi Krathong Festival
“Loi Krathong” is traditionally performed on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month, which usually falls on some day in November. The floating of a ‘Krathong’ – a banana–leaf cup – is intended to float away ill fortune as well as to express apologies to Khongkha or Ganga, the River Goddess. Some believe that the ritual is meant to worship the Buddha’s footprint on the bank of the Narmada River, while others say that it is to pay respect to Phra Uppakhut, one of the Lord Buddha’s great disciples.
The Loi Krathong Festival is celebrated nationwide in Thailand, especially where there are rivers, canals or sources of water, with different unique characteristics.
Electric Float Procession
This year, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has joint with Educational Institution and Thai Boat Association to present the Electric Float Procession from Taksin Bridge to Krungthon Bridge and the 12 lighten up buildings and historical sites along Chao Praya River during Loi Krathong Festival.
