ABAC, Thailand’s first international university, majoring in business studies, selected this neighbourhood on the eastern seaboard side of Bangkok, to build its main and finest campus. The vast complex is an attraction in its own right with a distinctive landmark tower that just cannot be missed. Here, a potpourri of contrasting architecture and a fusion of lifestyles create a vibrant community. Chor Cher is the neighbourhood hotel.
Close to the university and Chor Cher - The Green Residence, there are popular chill-out community malls loaded with chic restaurants, pubs, shops and entertainment spots.
Located 2 km off the main approach road leading to ABAC from the Bangna-Trat Highway, the hotel is slightly less than 30 km from Suvarnabhumi Airport and 15 km from Mega Bangna, a vast shopping mall that is home to the only IKEA store in Thailand.
The hotel is surrounded by competition-class golf courses, all within a radius of 5 to 12 km. The nearest, one of Bangkok’s renowned courses opened in 1993, is almost on the hotel’s doorstep. But premier golf courses are literally everywhere, spread out over the flat expanse of land east of Bangkok, where fresh breezes blow in from the Gulf of Thailand.
The notable courses are: Chor Cher’s neighbour, Subhapruek Golf Club (Km 26 outbound Bangna-Trat Highway); Thai Country Club (km 35.5 outbound Bangna-Trat Highway; Vintage Club (km 27 inbound Bangna-Trat); Kiat Thanee (km 29 outbound Bangna-Trat); Windmill( near motorway 9 and Bangna-Trat intersection); Lakewood (km 18 outbound Bangna-Trat): Muang Kaew (km 7,7 inbound Bangna-Trat); Thana City Golf Club (near motorway 9 and Bangna-Trat intersection) and Amata Golf Club (25 km away, this world-class course has hosted Asian tours and the Thailand Open)
