3.You will be able to take advantage of convenient and affordable travel options:
Thailand is centrally located in Southeast Asia, where adventures are endless and traveling is easy and affordable. You’ll be able to spend your weekends and holiday breaks exploring everything Thailand has to offer, or even visit a neighboring country. Travel by plane, bus, train, or go more traditional and hire a tuk-tuk, rickshaw, or bicycle to get anywhere you want to go.
4. You will be able to get up and close and personal with elephants:
As a significant part of Thai culture for centuries, elephants are presently a hot topic. Thailand provides hands-on opportunities to spend time learning about elephants in the context of conservation, tourism and their natural habitat. Some study abroad programs in Thailand even have courses that focus specifically on elephants!
5.You will be able to develop foreign language skills:
Take advantage of Thai language classes while you are studying in Thailand, because you’ll quickly find yourself immersed in Thai language outside of the classroom. Try your hardest and you will learn not just about Thai grammar, but also gain a deeper understanding about the people who speak it. Language learning is a great way to make the most out of your study abroad experience in Thailand, test your brain, and build up your resume for when you need to apply for future jobs!
6. You will be able to forge lasting relationships:
Thais are extremely relational, and once you’re welcomed into a family or friendship with a Thai, it is forever. Students, especially those who stay with host families, can return to Thailand years after studying abroad and be welcomed into their host families’ and friends’ homes like they never left.
