Private bedroom in a shared apartment
In Bangkok, each intern has their own private bedroom in a shared apartment with other interns, young professionals, or international students. Each private bedroom has its own lock and air conditioning. Kitchen facilities will be provided, however, it is culturally common for people to eat out in Bangkok. You’ll find that it is generally more economical to eat at a restaurant or to grab some street food than to cook!
