Voices from Marco Polo students on their cultural experience in Bangkok, Thailand



Maeva, France:

It is now almost the end of my year in Bangkok, it’s been almost 8 months. I went to Bangkok to do my second year of hotel management school. during these 8 months I visited Bangkok and also travel in Thailand and discover this country. It was my first time outside Europe and in Asia. I found a  very different from my country. I discovered the Buddhism religion and the Asia style of food. It was a good experience to live in a country during few months, like this I could learn about the people, the culture, the way of life and travel around.


Lucie, France: 

Bangkok have two faces, the first of a wise capital where modernity and tradition interweave; and the second of a crazy city who

never sleeps.


Marie, Belgium:

I can say that after all this time leaving in Bangkok, I still have a lot to learn

about the diversity of the Thai culture. I’m really happy to know all these new things about

the country and about Buddhism, which is very interesting to know. Thailand is amazing and

incredible, I’m thankful for all the people I’ve met and the experiences we have shared. Thai

people of my class were incredibly welcoming and helpful during the school year.


Frieda, Brazil:

Almost 7 months has passed and I can say that many things happened and many experiences has been lived, I first came to Thailand without knowing much of the country and the culture but I am glad to say that now that I am about the leave I feel that I discover and that I have learnt so many things.

I would like to thank you all the people that have been involved in our journey here in Thailand, the teachers, the staff of Silpakorn and Vatel University, everyone helped to make this experience unforgettable.  I can say for me and for the other Marco Polo students that we are all very happy.
