Advice for Someone Considering Doing Internship in Bangkok

Respect your senior – Even though the working environment in Bangkok is pretty laid back, there is a pretty strong culture of seniority. Hierarchy and status still play an important part in Bangkok working culture. Show deference to your colleague, especially older ones. This does not mean you cannot speak up your opinion, but do so without disrespecting others.
Be generous – It is not hard to make friends with Thai people, who are mostly very friendly and helpful. It is the Land of Smiles after all. However, you can show them some good gestures, like bringing foods to the office or some souvenirs.
Dress professionally – Personal presentation is pretty important to Thai people. If you want to be taken seriously, you should dress professionally. This is important especially during the first days of your internship, to make sure that you make a great first impression.
