January 16 - 22, 2020. Lipa City Colleges took part of the annual Educational Tour and Study Visit Program of BanSomdejchaopraya Rajabhat University wherein partner universities are invited to experience Thailand while learning its culture, language and traditions. This Language and Cultural Program is part of the strong academic and artistic alliance of the two institutions.

One of the highlights of the program was seeing Siam Naramit, an outrageous and state of the art theater production, renowned for its world class production and storytelling. The participants enjoyed learning traditional Thai dance, discerning Thai script and exploring different Thai tourist spots like the Grand Palace, Kanchanaburi Province, Taweechai Elephant Camp and many more. There were activities which exposed the partakers into traditional Thai medicine and Thai Boxing.
The program lasted for 7 long days and our delegates always comment, "It's worth it!"
