Thailand has been crowned with the title Best Golf Destination at the first ever Arabian Travel Awards on July 4, 2017, held at JW Marriott Dubai.
Director, Tourism Authority of Thailand Dubai and Middle East office, Chalermsak Suranant received the prestigious award on behalf of the nation.
Established by the DDP group, the Arabian Travel Awards recognise the crème de la crème of the tourism and hospitality industries in the Middle East. The awards entail a unique system of jury judgement and internet voting to give out fair and unbiased results.
Suranant expressed his delight with the achievement: “We would like to thank the jury of Arabian Travel Awards for this recognition and all the people who voted for Thailand as the Best Golf Destination. This is truly a manifestation of our hard work and dedication to give our Middle East-based golf enthusiasts the highest quality of golf products and services.”
He continued: “Golf tourism has long been seen as a niche market. Moreover, Thailand can boast some of the best courses in the world, many designed by well-known golfing names with great value for money and state-of-the-art facilities, attractions underlined by excellent services from professional caddies.”
