Moving to Bangkok

One of the best things about NIST is its location in Thailand’s capital, one of the most vibrant, eclectic and culturally diverse cities in Southeast Asia. If you’ve just moving to Bangkok, however, we understand that the city can feel a bit overwhelming. NIST employs a full-time international family liaison who helps all families adjust to the school, and particularly those who have relocated from abroad.

Additionally, below are several resources that will help you adjust to the transition. The Bangkok Guide, written by the Australian-New Zealand Women’s Group, is one of the best resources available for expats settling into Bangkok.
