Bangkok Adventure

You will leave the hotel at 10:00 AM to see some interesting parts of Bangkok that you have never experienced (whether you have visited Bangkok before, or not!), joining a social enterprise that will take you to interesting communities and pockets of culture still lingering despite Bangkok’s modernisation.

You will be formed into small groups in order to meet people from other teams (we know from over 10 years experience with the GSVCSEA that the social enterprises pitched in the competition don’t always continue, but people make valuable connections across countries in ASEAN).

Bring casual, comfortable footwear, and a hat.

At an informal reception share what you did and learned throughout the day, before drawing for the presentation order.
