  • Geography and areas

    The Bangkok Metropolitan, also known as Greater Bangkok, is the urban conglomeration of Bangkok, which includes the city and the five adjacent provinces of Nakhon Pathom, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Samut Prakan and Samut Sakhon. Bangkok itself is a huge city divided into 50 districts.

    The area around Siam Square, including Ratchaprasong and Phloen Chit Road, is Bangkok’s modern commercial core, full of glitzy malls and hotels. The Skytrain intersection at Siam Square is the closest thing Bangkok has to a city centre.

    The Sukhumvit Road is one of the longest boulevards in the world; it actually is over 400 km long and reaches all the way from Bangkok to Cambodia. The Bangkok stretch of the road crosses through an exclusive district popular among expatriates and upper class locals. The area is filled with quality hotels, condos, spas, boutiques, restaurants and nightclubs. Nana has the most cosmopolitan street life. Phromphong is more focused in dining, while Thonglor and Ekamai have become the high streets of the newly rich.

    The area around Silom Road and Sathorn Road is Thailand’s financial centre by day but the primary party district by night when quarters there, like the infamous Patpong, come alive.

  • Climate and Weather

    The climate in Bangkok is a tropical wet and dry climate, which means that the area has a distinct wet and dry season and an average temperature of over 18 degrees Celsius every month.

    The rainy season begins in May and continues till the end of October. During the rainy season, the weather has a tendency to be unpredictable, consisting of some heavier monsoon rains as well as long periods of the loveliest, uninterrupted sunshine. The rains are short, soft and warm by their nature and even during the rainy season, the sun shines in practice daily. An added bonus during the rainy season is the completely lowered price range.

    Summer season starts, at the latest, in November and banishes the left over rain clouds from the horizon. The weather is excellent all summer long, and since the summer season in Thailand takes place during the European winter, Thailand is a popular Christmas break destination for Westerners. The summer season continues till May and during the season the daily temperatures often rise above 30 Celsius.

    Cheap and tasty

    Thai food is very aromatic and most often quite spicy. Jasmine rice is an important part of the cuisine, as are noodles. A large variety of herbs and spices are used in the cooking, many of which are not common in Western countries. The food is eaten with a fork and a spoon. The fork is held in the left hand and used to push food into the spoon. The food is then eaten from the spoon. Vegetables, beef, pork, fish, chicken and shrimp are all included in Thai cuisine.

    Dining out is much cheaper than in Western countries. A meal can cost as little as 0.50 Euros. Food can be bought in restaurants as well as from street stands. Remember to always drink bottled water. Restaurant wise Bangkok has everything under the sun, including all the Western fast food restaurants. Do yourself and your waistline a favour, though, and dip into the local, healthy cuisine. You’ll save money and won’t fall asleep during the afternoon lectures.

    Street food capital of the world

    Bangkok is also described as the best street food cities in the world. Just explore and taste the perfect quick snacks, desserts, noodles and try the ultimate goodies such as Phad Thai or Som Tam.

  • Transportation and Getting around

    Rivers and canals

    Many of the canals have now been filled and turned into streets but there are still many authentic old canals to be found and explored by, for example, a canal boat. There are river boats and ferries that run along the Chao Phraya River, for example, the Chao Phraya Express Boat, which has over 30 stops along both banks of the river.

    Buses

    The Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) provides a regular bus service. The buses run within Bangkok as well as to the nearby provinces. Air-conditioned buses are more expensive than non-air-conditioned ones. Some buses run around the clock.

    Long-distance buses run to all parts of the country but make sure you know which terminal your bus leaves from. There are several bus terminals in Bangkok and the terminal depends on where the bus is headed.

    Railroads

    Skytrain (BTS) runs above the city. There are a total of twenty-three stations along two lines. There is also an additional line that runs directly from the centre to Suvarnabhumi airport. Passengers can buy single tickets or BTS passes and there are student discounts available, too.

    Bangkok metro system (MRT) runs underneath the city. It’s another good option besides Skytrain when you want to avoid the traffic and get around the city fast. There are single tickets, passes and student discounts for the metro as well. There are also several stations where you can change from BTS to MRT or the other way around.

    Long-distance trains to and from the Hua Lamphong railroad station connect Bangkok e.g. to Laos and Malaysia.

    Airports

    Bangkok is one of the main air traffic hubs in Southeast Asia. There are two airports in Bangkok: Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang. Suvarnabhumi is the main airport and most of the international flights depart from there. Don Mueang is smaller and used mainly for domestic flights. It’s easy to fly almost anywhere from Bangkok. Air Asia is a popular low-cost airline, with very affordable prices. Find out more about traveling in Asia here.

    Taxis

    There are many taxi options you can choose from in Bangkok, everything from tuk-tuks to motorcycle taxis and taxi cars. Tuk-tuks and motorcycle taxis are not as comfortable as normal taxis because of their open cabins that do not protect the customer from the dust and pollution of the surrounding traffic. Remember to agree on the price before hopping on a tuk-tuk or a motorcycle taxi. Taxi cars are quite affordable and the air-conditioning is very pleasant on a hot day. Just remember to make sure that the driver turns on the meter or he might charge extra.

  • Currency

    The currency in Thailand is Thai baht (THB). One baht is divided into 100 satang. One euro is approximately 40 baht, depending on the exchange rate.

    Credit cards are accepted at major establishments, but you might have to pay an additional fee when paying with them. Cash will be needed for transportation, street vendors and smaller stores.

  • Safety

    Bangkok is a relatively safe city despite its size. Beware of pick-pockets in crowded areas. Do not leave valuables in your hotel room (there are safe deposits at the reception). Please read through are safety tips for Asia here.

  • Vaccinations

    Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) and Tetanus-diphtheria are should be kept up-to-date. Hepatitis A and B are recommended.

    Japanese encephalitis is recommended for those who are planning on spending a month or more in rural areas or who are going to spend a lot of time outdoors in rural areas after dusk. You can find more information on vaccinations here.

  • History

    Bangkok was only a small town until a new canal was dug from the then capital Ayutthaya via Bangkok to the ocean, to shorten the distance between the old capital and the Gulf of Thailand. European ships began to sail to Bangkok and the town became a duty port where missionaries, traders and explorers would gather together before continuing on to the capital.

    Bangkok saw rapid economic growth, and in 1767, when Ayutthaya was destroyed, a new capital was established on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, in the town of Thornburi, which is now a part of Bangkok. In 1782, Bangkok became the official capital of Thailand when King Rama I of the Chakri Dynasty built his palace on the east bank of the Chao Phraya River. The city was also renamed ‘Krung Thep’, which means ‘the City of Angels’. Thai people still usually refer to the city as ‘Krung Thep’; ‘Bangkok’ is the international version of the name. The city has also been referred to as the ‘Venice of the East’ due to its numerous canals.

What students have said about Bangkok

Here’s what some former Asia Exchange students have said about studying abroad in Bangkok:

“A student gets to know the local culture better than a tourist”

Being a student at Kasetsart University, which is a world-class university, allowed me to get to know and enjoy every single aspect of Thai life & culture. Even though I studied hard, I had also time to visit other South-East Asian countries. A student gets to know locals and the culture much better than a tourist. I heard each and every student saying ‘I will come back here as soon as possible’.

– Angela Carella, Italy, studied at Kasetsart University

“I would go there again”

I can’t think of a single reason why not to study abroad in Thailand. My choice of destination was excellent and I would go there again. Studying abroad is a great opportunity to experience living in Asia – don’t miss your chance!

– Henna, Finland, studied at Siam University

“I expected to be surprised, and it happened”

I expected to be surprised and amazed. It happened and I really liked it! Asian people don’t live like Europeans, at all. I discovered lots of trends, values and habits that I had never figured out before. All these things spoke to me and made it a real experience.

– Thomas, France, studied at Siam University

Reasons to choose Bangkok

Best universities in Asia and a large expatriate population that provides excellent opportunities for networking.

Bangkok is also one of the best places to call home if you are planning on travelling around South East Asia.
