As a golfer, I love to explore new accessories and technologies in the Golf equipments. In Thailand, my recommendation is Thaniya Plaza. This is one spot in Bangkok where golfers visit to see the most recent golf equipments and to look for those things which only golfers will appreciate. It’s a shopping-center where the majority occupants are golf shops. From manufacturers like Titleist, Ping and Nike to the high-end shops like Honma, to used-golf equipment shops, there is something for practically everybody. There are facilities like clothing merchandises, lessons and resort bookings also accessible. One can purchase golf gears, as well as can get it repaired or customised to your specs. If you want your lofts and lie set on your clubs, or your grips replaced, or your club re-shafted, Thaniya has many stores that can do it for you as you wait. The cost is quite reasonable and a few shops have club makers that have been certified by US companies.
If there is one must-see sight that no visit to Bangkok would be complete without, it's the dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace, undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark. Built in 1782 - and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government - the Grand Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame indeed, that continues to have visitors in awe with its beautiful architecture and intricate detail, all of which is a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of Thai people. Within its walls were also the Thai war ministry, state departments, and even the mint. Today, the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom.
