Bangkok is the most beautiful and exotic city of Thailand, well known for its ornate shrines and vibrant street life – a visit to such a place provides an experience of a lifetime. It is known as the city of angels, magnificent city of the 9 gems, seat of kings and royal palaces, home of gods, believed to be erected by Visvakarman at Lord Indra’s behest.  

These 3 nights 4 days tour was an adventurous one for our students visited who visited the Siracha Tiger Zoo, the Safari World, Coral Island, Walking Street etc. They had a quick tour of Pattaya city. They also visited Golden Buddha Temple and Gems Gallery, one of the famous tourist destinations, world famous for its outstanding collection of beautiful gems. The Gems Gallery offered students glimpses into the amazing craftsmanship and skill of people in Thailand. Students got the opportunity to see The Alcazar Carabet Show, a must watch for a perfect blend of acting, stage design and costumes. The students were overwhelmed by the peace and serenity of the beautiful Golden Buddha Temple and its surroundings. 

It was a great privilege for students to get exposed to Thai culture. One of the main attractions was Thai food- a spicy mix of sweet, salty, bitter, and sour. Commenting on the food one of the BCA students observed, “The spices of authentic Thai food will steam up your ears, but you can always balance it out with the awesome flavors of aromatic herbs”. 

Overall, this first international exposure for most students, introduced them to a different culture and made them realize how beautiful the world is and how important it is for us all to treasure its beauty.
