There are 317 Rotary Clubs in Thailand (as at 30 December 2014), the vast majority of which, of course, conduct their affairs and meetings in Thai.
There are, however, a small number of clubs (8) that use English, and one club each using Chinese, Japanese, French and German.
These clubs are:
The Rotary Club of Bangkok
The Rotary Club of Bangkapi
The Rotary Club of Bangkok South
The Rotary Club of Jomtien-Pattaya
The Rotary Club of Eastern Seaboard, Pattaya
The Rotary Club of Koh Samui
The Rotary Club of Phayathai
The Rotary Club of Royal Hua Hin
The Rotary Club of Bangkok South has extensive links with clubs all over Thailand, and not just the English speaking ones.
Many of these links come about through our Clean Drinking Water and Library Kit projects, as well as projects done via Matching Grants.
We also have ‘sister club’ relationships with a number of clubs in Thailand and overseas.
Many of these relationships were re-confirmed at a dinner held on 30 September 2011 in conjunction with our 50th anniversary.
