Thanks in part to its reputation for warm, sincere and authentic service, Bangkok is the world’s top ranking city for tourist arrivals. A bustling hub for visitors, the city’s growing and exciting hospitality scene provides a stage for the latest hotel and restaurant concepts and the opportunity to experience them firsthand. Famous worldwide for its cuisine, Thailand is the ideal destination to study food, beverage and hospitality. The setting and the culture, not to mention the climate and quality of life, blend to create an amazing destination for you to not only further your hospitality education journey but to experience and immerse yourself in a truly unique experience.
Dusit Thani College is situated in a quiet suburb in southeast Bangkok: far enough away from the busy downtown area to provide an environment conducive to study, but with the action still within easy reach, via local public transport. The college is only 25 minutes from Suvarnabhumi Airport and within an easy drive to Thailand’s Eastern coast highway, which leads to plentiful resorts and tourist attractions, such as Pattaya and Rayong. Near the college is one of Bangkok’s largest shopping malls, providing a wealth of local and international restaurants and entertainment, as well as supermarkets stocking many of the home comforts that you may require. It is also very close to Rama IX Park, which is the city’s largest park, featuring beautiful pavilions, a large lake and expansive gardens, as well as plenty of spots for exercise.
Accommodation and Lifestyle
Conveniently located near to the college are many accommodation options to suit all budgets. From the very start, you will be assigned a counselor who will assist you with all aspects of your stay and studies.

Bangkok is synonymous with nightlife and entertainment and the local neighbourhood has many popular spots. The college has more than 2,000 students living nearby so it’s easy to make friends to explore and enjoy the city with.
