If you have signed up for the Basic TEFL Course Program and would like to join the Premium students on a Culture Immersion Trip, contact the office for details and time slots available. You are welcome to join us at an additional fee.

    As the name suggests, these trips are designed to acquaint you to Thai culture. It is our believe that familiarizing you to the ways of local life here will enable you to better adjust to your work and living environment as prospective teachers in Thailand. Musch like excursions, these are trips which provide a healthy mix of fun and learning. Most of these trips involve a significant amount of walking over rough and uneven terrain. Hence, we suggest you wear appropriate footwear during these trips.

    Our Culture Immersion trips will provide you with an opportunity to connect with your fellow students and instructors on a more personal level as you learn about various unique features of Thai culture.

We will then make a visit to the Hill Tribe (Long Neck) museum. This stop will provide you with an insight into history of the Hill Tribes in and around Thailand.
    • Doi Suthep Temple. We take our students to the Doi Suthep summit where we visit the Doi Suthep National Park. Here we also pay a visit to the renowned Wat Phra That, a Theravada Buddhist temple which was built as a monastery in 1383. It still functions as a working monastery and will provide valuable insight about religion in Thailand to our students.
    • Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden. When at Chiang Mai, a visit to the Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden and Royal Residence is considered a necessary part of a tourist’s itinerary. We take our students here to acquaint them with the traditions and culture of the Royal Thai family as the Bhubing Palace here is used as the winter residence by the reigning family of Thailand.
