The class meeting point is the Giant Swing, one of the most famous landmarks in Bangkok. All taxi drivers and hotel staff know the Giant Swing, making your transportation to the meeting point easy. In Thai the Giant Swing is called Sao Ching Cha. You can also show the photo on the right to any local and he or she will know exactly where you want to go.
Students are given a brief introduction and have a few minutes to meet each other. Optionally students may wear traditional Thai clothing (available to the first four students who request it).

In contrast to visiting the popular temples alone, during this visit you will see how local residents of this Bangkok neighborhood begin their day at the temple and a practicing Buddhist will provide an explanation of the various activities inside.
