Setting Description:
Semester in Thailand is based just outsie of Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok, which has a population of about 10 million. Bangkok has gained international renown as an independent, dynamic city synonymous with the exotic. It is a dominating force in Asian finance and business, and its far-reaching influence on politics, culture, fashion, and entertainment has earned it global-city status. The city’s wealth of cultural landmarks, attractions, and notorious entertainment venues has created a shroud of mystery around the entire country. Nearly 11 million foreign visitors flock to Bangkok each year to explore the Grand Palace, the Vimanmek Palaca Complex, and the thousands of temples strewn about the city, and to experience the amazing international cuisine, pulsing nightlife, and extraordinary energy. For transportation, Bangkok offers buses, trains, a skytrain, vans, taxis, tuk-tuks (a form of 3-wheeled cart with a motorcycle front end), motorcycle taxis, river ferries, and a subway
