  • 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.
  • Open since 1901 by Royal approval of King Rama V, is one of Bangkok's most renowned Sites, an exclusive sport complex in Thailand.
  • RBSC coffee shop : Butter bread and lemon ice tea is very nice
  • Private member club in the centre of Bangkok with a 18 hole golf course. Open every other Sunday from noon to 6pm for horse racing only, US$3 entrance fee.

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.
