Posted at: 25 Dec 2020

Studying abroad is not just about studying but also about living and experiencing different cultures and practices. Besides choosing to study in a certain well-known university, the living environment is a large part of a student's experience abroad since it is going to be your second home there. 

In Thailand, here are the four popular cities and destinations for Cambodian students to study and visit when study abroad in Thailand. 


Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand and the most populous city in the country serving as the commercial hub. It is also the home to Thailand’s top internationally recognized universities such as the Chulalongkorn University and the Thammasat University which are among the top 100 universities of QS Asia University Rankings. Bangkok is certainly the top choice for international students including Cambodian students not only because of the internationally recognized education but also the dynamic and diverse lifestyle in this city. Besides the Western and modernization influence, Thai’s rich cultural trace can also be found in Bangkok including the Bangkok National Museum, Jim Thompson House Museum, Wat Pho (Buddhist Temple), Wat Arun (Buddhist Temple), and more.

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is the second-largest city in the country and also the most culturally significant city in northern Thailand. From the gorgeous countryside of rice fields, mountains to ancient templates, studying in Chiang Mai allows Cambodian students to maximize their experience of the local tradition and culture in Thailand. Additionally, the Chiang Mai University, which ranked 112th in QS Asia University Rankings and is the highest-ranked university in Thailand outside the capital city is also located in Chiang Mai. This city is also famous for its numerous temples and museum such as the Doi Suthep, Old City Temples, Wiang Kum Kam, Karen Long Neck Tribe & Chiang Dao Cave, Chiang Mai National Museum, Insect and Natural Wonder Museum, and more. If the crowded Bangkok is not the top preference, Chiang Mai is usually the international student’s option when studying in Thailand.  

Chiang Rai

Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai’s sister city, is a city in the northernmost of Thailand with a sleepy provincial town with a pleasant atmosphere, a relaxed and down-to-earth feel but rich historical and cultural attractions of its own. This is one of the popular destinations for students to experience the impressive architecture, arts, cuisine, history, and music in Thailand. The popular historical site includes Wat Rong Khun, Mingmuang temple, Phu Chi Dao, Baan Dam Museum and Doi Pha Tang.


Phuket is the largest island in Thailand and the most popular holiday destination in Asia. From culture to nature to other sports, this is the popular destination for people who want to have a rich experience. Being the top tourist destination, it is a good option for students who plan to study tourism and hospitality to get the general idea of tourism in Thailand. There are also international programs available there.
