The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Thailand (FCCT) is Southeast Asia’s oldest Press Club. We have been providing international and local media, expatriates, and Thais a place to gather, socialize, and discuss current affairs for more than 60 years. The Club regularly holds events at the clubhouse that are all open to the public. The FCCT offers memberships to not only foreign and local journalists, but also associate memberships for individuals that are not affiliated with any media organizations. Membership in the FCCT is reasonably priced at no more then 4,500 Baht annually (with a 1,000 Baht registration fee for your first year of membership). FCCT membership offers numerous benefits, including but not limited to, access to FCCT sponsored events for free, and a 25% discount on food and beverage at the Club Bar & Restaurant. The FCCT clubhouse is conveniently located just off of the Chitlom BTS station on the Penthouse floor of the Maneeya Center. From the rooftop balcony the Clubhouse offers views of the Bangkok skyline, and the Royal Bangkok Sports Club’s racecourse and golf course.
