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.

My semester in Thailand with CISabroad was an amazing experience. The university was larger than my home university, and I felt almost overwhelmed by the amount of opportunities available. The apartment we stayed in was run by a local family which was
a great way to meet new people and practice Thai. I loved Thailand for the food, people, culture, and location. For example, I was able to schedule my classes so that I had three day weekends which I could use to travel to nearby countries. CISabroad provided a great support network and were there for us at every step of the way. I suggest this program to anyone ready for new experiences.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
