Dear HEF president, committees and “SAWASDEE Krab” all participants
Here we are in the charming countries that was once named “Siam” and has been known “The land of smile…”. As the local host, I would like to warmly welcome all of you from around the world to Bangkok…the capital or “Krungthep” in Thai which means “Angel City”. Thailand is located at the heart of South East Asia region and hub of varieties activities, and you come to us when we just got new king so let’s celebrate for his majesty the king (Rama v).
Thailand is divided into 6 parts: North, East, South, West, North East and Central, you can go visiting both rural and urban for touching cultural place (temples, meditation centers, cultural centers, communities wisdom, etc.), shopping malls, natural places (sea beaches, hill-mountains, water fall, forest, etc.), restaurants and plenty eating points (one of our most reputation is “foods, vegetable, fruits and beverage” so don’t miss to try Thai food!!!). The arts, handicrafts, creative stuffs, hand made products are very interesting too that you can achieve in local market or modern trade area. Surely, you could entertain various movies, sports (running in the park, biking lanes are famous now), night life, river traveling are suggested.
For education, Thailand education system consisted of basic education (pre-school, primary and secondary), under graduate, graduate, vocational and life long. There are many universities in Bangkok and you can visit for further cooperation.
