Angliss International Hotel School Study Tour to Bangkok
Angliss Hotel Management students stepped out on a week-long adventure in Thailand, touring some of the city's best accommodation and attractions.
There were many standouts, but for Cary Warren, Manager of Centre for Tourism & Hospitality, the tour truly encapsulates all that they've achieved through the Diploma studies.
"We continue to revisit Thailand time and time due to its large increase in luxury hotel infrastructure within the competitive market of Asia. And we were so lucky to have the opportunity to meet people from different sectors of the business, from General Managers to hotel staff. Providing our students with a full snapshot of what it takes to run a successful hotel," Carry said.
Here's some of the highlights
Sightseeing and a tour of Shama Lakeview Asoke
Their first stop was a cultural masterclass tour at Wot Pho and Chatuchak Market, both locations dubbed as a must-visit for first-timers in Thailand. Our students saw the impressive 15 meters tall and 46-meter long statue of The Reclining Buddha and toured the majestic Grand Palace. The day continued at Chatuchak Market, the perfect place to do a bit of shopping and taste test authentic Thai food.
The day ended with a tour of Shama Lakeview Asoke with the General Manager, Mr.Sukmal Mondal and the Hotel Manager, Mr.Christoph Glaser. Both were incredibly generous with their time and knowledge. Together they discussed the tourism and hotel industry in Thailand and how Shama Lakeview Asoke operates to make sure they remain top of mind in a competitive market.
Stepping into luxury hotels and a Cocktail Masterclass by 1826 Mixology
The students made their way to a couple of luxurious hotels in Bangkok, The Athenee Hotel and Oriental Residence Bangkok. At Angliss, we believe it's essential for our students to understand the different standards and expectations of the industry.
After the hotel tours, the team from 1826 Mixology & Rooftop Bar had some fun with our students. 1826 Mixology is known for its delicious and creative drinks and their award-winning Mexican, Indian and Italian restaurants. Their panoramic views of Bangkok's skyline also don't hurt!
Recreating Thai dishes
After days of tasting authentic Thai food, our students had a crack at making it themselves. During their Thai Cooking Masterclass, they created classic dishes such as Pla Goong (spicy prawn salad with lemongrass, kaffir lime and chili paste), Pad Thai Goong (wok-fried rice noodles, prawns chives, beansprouts and tamarind sauce) and Nuea Pad Prig Thai (stir-fried beef with black pepper sauce).
