Orientation in the Big Mango
Following airport pickups, our group will be introduced to Thailand’s bustling capital, Bangkok. In a citywide scavenger hunt we’ll get to know the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of this modern, yet distinctively Thai city. Your program leaders will take you on a food crawl through Bangkok’s China Town, the epicenter of street food culture in the city. We will also be meeting with a local chef who’ll give us the rundown on the essential elements of Thai cuisine. Temple hopping and a crash course on Thai language basics will, of course, also be part of the agenda!
