The Honda LPGA Thailand is a women's professional golf tournament on the LPGA Tour, first played in 2006 at the Amata Spring Country Club in Thailand. In 2007, the tournament moved to the Siam Country Club, on its Pattaya Old Course. It was the first LPGA Tour event held in Thailand and it increased the number of countries on the 2006 LPGA schedule to eight, including the United States.

The tournament was not held in 2008, but returned to the LPGA schedule in 2009. It was held at the newer Plantation Course for this year only, then returned to the Old Course in 2010. The tournament is a limited-field event with no cut; in 2011, 60 players were in the tournament (57 professionals and 3 amateurs); a full-field LPGA tournament has about 144 players. The 2012 event included a field of 70 players, with top-ranked Yani Tseng successfully defending her title, one stroke ahead of runner-up Ai Miyazato, the 2010 champion.[1]

The title sponsor is Honda, a Japanese-based manufacturer of automobiles, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, and robots.
