The culture and climate in Thailand is very different from westernized countries.

1. Thailand welcomes you with open arms

If you have not lived in Asia before, Thailand is an easy and welcoming place to start. There is a good reason why the slogan for Thailand is “The Land Of Smiles”. The local people are well known for their genuine hospitality and their ear-to-ear smiles. As the Thai people are used to tourists, they tend to be very open and always willing to help. If you study in Thailand for an extended period of time, the smiles and laughter will definitely rub off on you! However, just to give you a heads up; wherever you travel, and especially if you are a student in Thailand for a lengthy extension, you have to remember to show respect towards the locals. One way to do so is to greet Thais using a “wai”. To do this, bend your head a little bit, push your palms against one another and touch your nose with your fingertips. By making this polite gesture, you will show and receive respect.

3. There is so much to see and to do!

Thailand offers so much to explore that you will most likely never be bored. Getting around and travel from point A to B is easy in Thailand. Most people can speak English and therefore, you will never have difficulties to reserve a bus or a train ticket. Take the chance to explore the northern part with its many rice fields and different hill tribes, or the southern coast that has crystal clear, blue water. Spend your time off school to island hopping and enjoy the beautiful, tropically scenery – a must if you study in Thailand!

4. The location is perfect if you want to travel cheap to other nearby countries

Every country in Asia has its own unique experience to offer. The many complex flavors and diverse cultures make this continent a never-ending exploring story. For these reasons, Asia is the most visited continent by foreigners from Europe. Thailand is situated in the center of Asia, which makes it the perfect hub-country to travel to other countries around Asia, especially Southeast-Asia. A flight ticket from Bangkok to one of the nearby countries like Cambodia, Vietnam, Singapore or Indonesia, is relatively cheap compared to other popular destinations like Japan or China.

5. Bangkok is one of the planet’s most exciting metropolis – and Phuket is much more than just beach resorts

Bangkok fascinates everyone in one why or another. With its many beautiful parks, gigantic skyscrapers and golden shimmering temples, Bangkok is full of contrasts and offers something for everyone. Also, for an exchange student, Bangkok is the perfect choice because it is so cheap. You can eat delicious street food and get a beer for under 5 US dollars. Phuket on the other hand has incredibly beautiful beaches. Yes, it is every tourists dream but it offers more than just white sand beaches. For example, the charming Phuket Old Town, the many exciting night markets, the many sports opportunities (kayaking or snorkeling, anyone?) and all the fascinating temples will guarantee every student the semester of their life.
