A schedule is listed below. Contact the conference hosts for more information.
We will take a brief guided tour to Chulalongkorn University in the late afternoon. This will get you to know the venue and areas around the campus. A package including maps, places to eat, places to visit around the area will be provided and briefly introduced to you.
A half day conference and a trip to the Grand Palace.
For just about 150 years, Bangkok's Grand Palace was not only the home of the King and his court, but also the entire administrative seat of government. Within the crenelated walls were the country's war ministry, state departments, and even the mint. Thai Kings stopped living in the palace full time around the turn of the twentieth century, but the complex remains the seat of power and spiritual heart of the Thai kingdom.
An optional trip to Ayutthaya (we are working out on the budget and hope that the registration will cover this trip).
For those who are interested, we plan an optional trip to Ayutthaya (aka Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya), the ancient, former capital city of Thailand. Many ancient ruins and art works can be seen in a city that was founded in 1350 by King U-Thong when the Thais were forced southwards by northern neighbors. During the period of Ayutthaya being the Thai capital, 33 Kings of different dynasties ruled the kingdom.
