Bangkok is the Orientís most cosmopolitan city and has attractions to stimulate even the most jaded travelers. Created as the Thai capital in 1782, Bangkok is a national treasure house and Thailandís spiritual, cultural, political, commercial, educational and diplomatic center. Incredibly amidst this sybaritic world, Bangkok manages to preserve its cultural heritage to an amazing degree. In the rich splendor of the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Temple of the Dawn and other historic shrines, we see images of medieval Oriental wonder, the very stuff of Eastern fairytales can be seen. Bangkok, Thailandís ďCity of AngelsĒ, is, indeed, a magic place where possibilities are limited only by the imagination.

Asian Institute of Technology

The Asian Institute of Technology(AIT) is originated in 1959 to help meet the growing need for advanced engineering education in Asia. In November1967, under its present name of the Asian Institute of Technology, the Institute became an autonomous international institution empowered to award degrees and diplomas. Presently AIT offers advanced education in engineering, science, planning and management through a range of activities at levels and intensities from doctoral research to short-term training.

Located just 42 km. north of Bangkok (16 km. north of the Bangkok International Airport) on Phaholyothin Road, AIT is situated within the beautiful ground and gardens.
