Experience Thailand’s charming natural beauty, fascinating history, unique culture and welcoming people during your exchange program to the heart of Southeast Asia.
Thailand is the only Southeast Asian country, which has never been colonised by a European nation. Instead, Thailand has been a unified kingdom since the mid-14th Century and still is a Constitutional Monarchy with the King of Thailand as its head of state. It is here that the nation’s Father’s Day and Mother’s Day are celebrated on Their Majesty’s birthdays.
Thailand’s only official language, Thai, is spoken by almost 100 per cent of the population. It is a fascinating monosyllabic and tonal language and the pride of the Thai people. In fact, on 29 July each year, the population celebrates National Thai Language Day with several activities, such as discussions, special lectures, exhibitions, and contests, being organised each year. Thailand enjoys a high level of literacy and education is compulsory up to year nine.
Last but not least, discover Thailand’s internationally renowned cuisine and regional specialities often described as a rich, harmonious fusion of centuries-old Eastern and Western influences.
