Villa Baan Sabai, activities, things to do in Soi Dao
The Soi Dao Highland Golf Club is a demanding course and surrounded by fascinatingly beautiful nature.
It was designed by Dennis Griffiths and almost perfectly integrated in the surrounding landscape - it is something like a secret recommendation in Thailand....
