Guest feedback

Group Dynamics Being away with some of the people last year gave us an opportunity for further strengthen our bond! In relation to new members they were much fun and saw a much relaxed side that we don’t see at work due to volumes of stress we all face. Flight: Thai Airways, “Hard to beat that Smile” Arrival: “Nice to have a friendly face to meet us at the airport with transport”

Charity: Slum kids Bangkok

MDF Mercy Centre • Confronting, sad yet rewarding to see the children so happy and the “care” factor. Makes me feel luck for what we have. The host guide was exceptional, the world needs people them. Foundation for Slum Child Care • So lovely to see the harmony and soft spirits of the workers and volunteers and the cute children. We saw the opportunity to raise some funds. Bangkok APAC (Personal Assist) • Great assistance, having the locals along with us means we get to know so much more quicker and of course share their smiles &/or confusion. Teambuilding Challenge: Madame Tussauds Bangkok • Fun, got right into it, had a blast, we all had a laugh and share funny moments. City culture • Such a big city, boasting a truly dynamic infusion of technology and old world history and charming people Food and dining • Arguably the most incredibly consistent aspect! Nightlife • So many choices, low – medium – high. Probably should have used my time better to prepare better, it was great but I think I could have done more! What positive experience can you use for your L.I.F.E. • Jump out of your comfort zone, sometimes “same same but different isn’t a bad thing”. • It’s about living; expectations, living and learning about the “rules for being human”

Did you / your group experience L.I.F.E. ? Leadership, Integrity, Flexibility, Efficiency):?

Inbound Assist with Bangkok A.P.A.C. “Get the most use a host” NB: Central has retained PA’s from 9am to 9pm If you require a P.A. outside of this timeline please book. Resources: The ratio of PA’s is different for each group according to group size / pre bookings Senior PA: Khun Arwee Most of you already know her from last year’s event. Arwee has hosted many visitors over the past few years, she has also visited Perth W.A. several times, on study visa as well as tourist. Skill sets: HIGH; language tourism and hospitality M: 08 599 00714 PA Advanced: Khun Ami she served to champion your tour last year and she’s back Skill sets: Medium; Language high: Hospitality; high Tourism: medium Best skills “stamina” (never stops) with 8 yrs local knowledge she is an excellent match for most entry point tourism options.

Ken offers a broad base knowledge in regard to language and culture. Mob: 08 3227-2723 <> 08 5374-8783

Lead time Shopping / Hospitality: with a range of some 800 products / services it is not possible to have up to date knowledge, we therefore reply on our web knowledge base. Please DO give advance notice of your wish list so we can fine tune before you arrive!

Communicate skills are not purely language it’s also cultural! Politeness is overwhelming in Thailand, locals genuinely will avoid the slightest conflict, sounds wonderful but it can be a little frustrating when you are in a hurry and want answers – try not to be assertive. APAC members are inducted to be aware that visitors have a cultural difference! • This is a special opportunity for you to broaden your knowledge, • If you feel APAC staff are too submissive for your style please let us know. Local culture: Thai time is late start and late finish. Shops open from 10am to 10pm, but there is no “strict discipline” to time, the focus is “Jai yen yen” (have a cool heart), be polite and it will find its way. Skill sets: PA’s have different level of knowledge – advance booking is recommended.

About Bangkok Over the last few decades, Thailand 's capital city, Bangkok , has changed into a modern, exciting and sophisticated city. It offers to visitors not only the cosmopolitan amenities they would expect from other big cities, but also a unique treasure trove of cultural attractions. Thailand , in the heart of Southeast Asia , was never colonised and thus kept its unique culture and heritage intact. Bangkok offers visitors the opportunity to experience fascinating glimpse of Thailand's gentle culture amidst the bustle of a great and dynamic metropolis. This great city has had astounding success in combining the ancient and modern world. For tourists, Bangkok has a feast of attractions to offer. The city is dotted with 400 glittering Buddhist temples of great beauty and fascination, magnificent palaces, classical dance extravaganzas, numerous shopping centres and traditional ways of life, especially along the "Venice of the East" timeless canals and the Chao Phraya River of the "River of Kings" winding through the city. It is worth taking a trip along its waters before exploring further into different canals to take a glimpse of old Bangkok. The secret to getting around Bangkok comes down to two things: water and sky. Between the efficient (and incredibly cheap) ferry system that navigates the Chao Phraya, with colored flags designating express and local stops, and the equally efficient (and almost as cheap) Skytrain, you can get almost anywhere you want without once getting stuck in a cab. In fact, a good rule of thumb for visiting Bangkok might be this: If you can't there by boat or by train, don't go.
