My biggest recommendation for the next group is to be open. As soon as you step off the plane in Thailand you will notice major differences such as smell, cars, people, and even food. Don’t be afraid to try new things and be open minded about cultural options. By participating in these cultural events you will learn more not just about the country but about yourself.
Another recommendation I have is to keep pushing yourself. The first day you get there you will want to stay in your room and sleep but don’t! Go outside walk around and start experiencing Thailand. If you push yourself to get out and be apart of activities you will never be tired, and it will be easier for you to get back on a regular sleep schedule when you get home.
My last recommendation is to bring some snacks from home. There are some weird flavored chips and crackers in Thailand, and after a while you will just be craving something salty that isn’t seaweed flavored. A bonus about bringing your own snacks is if you don’t like the meal or aren’t too hungry you will have snacks to tide you over. Plus the space you use for your snacks will be available for gifts when you head home.
