As a school we are well resourced, by all means bring your favorite books but there is no need to think too much about resources and teaching materials.
There are many new and exciting things to see and do. there are also many links to home should you feel a little homesick and need a “western boost” fast food chains, coffee shops, and recognized brands can be found everywhere.

The School Library has many books that you can borrow to help you get around Bangkok and to plan your weekends away and vacations too, use the service to get settled.
