  • Good closed and exclusive place for sport complex and facilities. Good gym as well!!!
  • The club is an extension from home for me, a retiree. There are amenities and sports for various members. I believe RBSC and RBSC POLO are the best clubs in Thailand.
  • The guards don't know how to direct you to the restaurant, but once you get here, it fantastic. Good food!
  • One of the best exclusive sports club in town with golf course.Also nice food at good price at Cafe by the Pool.
  • This is a very exclusive sports club, including golf course, in the heart of BKk so you will only get in through family connections or a very good friend

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
