Discover how traditional and modern Thailand converge in the political, economic and spiritual center of Bangkok. Nestled within the tropics of Southeast Asia, this metropolitan capital attracts nature lovers and urban dwellers alike. Not only will you find beautiful temples, floating markets and incredible food, but also opportunities to make a difference during the fall or spring terms in a diverse range of internship options in education, public health, finance, sustainability and social services. Summer options introduce you to Thai studies or public health services in mobile rural communities.
