Temples, Tuk-Tuks and Tropical Fish

Exploring a foreign country is a great way to broaden horizons and they don’t get much more exotic than Thailand. From tuk-tuks to tropical fish, nearly fifty Year 11 and Lower Sixth students had a truly amazing experience on the Summer 2017 Biology trip to the Southeast Asian country.

A packed itinerary began in Bangkok with a visit to the magnificent Royal Grand Palace, which houses the Temple of the Emerald Buddha; a long tail boat canal tour; and a visit to the Damnoen Saduak floating market. As the group moved beyond Bangkok the once-in-lifetime experiences continued to pile up with close encounters with elephants; thrilling white-water rafting; and Himalayan hikes through the tropical flora and fauna.

The trip ended with a week on Koh Tao island where students were able to get some sand between their toes, learn to dive and explore the marine biology beneath the surface of the sparkling blue sea.
