If you have the time, we highly suggest learning some Thai while you are traveling in the Land of Smiles. Duke Language School is one of the best schools in Bangkok, located conveniently off the BTS Skytrain stop Nana. The classes are engaging, the staff is incredibly friendly, and the material covered is useful and interesting. Duke Language School also offers trial classes, so feel free to try out one of their many courses before having to pay a single baht. Private tutors start at ฿500 (about $15) for one hour. Group lessons start out at ฿7,000 (about $200) for three-hour long sessions, taught over the course of a month. Both evening and morning classes are available.
The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre has everything a person needs to get inspired. From galleries to photo exhibitions and even art-inspired cafés, this venue will certainly get your creative juices flowing. If you are feeling ambitious and want to do more than just meander the hallways of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, be sure to stop at Hibiki Music Studio. You will find this studio on the second floor. It is here you can take piano, guitar, and even violin lessons.
So you can cook like a Thai, speak in Thai, and hold your own in a Muay Thai fight: but can you dance like a Thai? Find out at Rum Puree Dance Studio. Learn about traditional Thai dance all the while improving your body posture, balance, and even reducing stress. This graceful art form will have you bending in ways you did not know were possible. Be warned, however, that your fingers will not be able to bend like a Thai dancer, at least not anytime soon. Rum Puree Dance Studio offers other dance classes as well, such as pole dancing, belly dancing, and even Bollywood. Students can sign-up for an open class without committing to future classes. Classes start at ฿500 (about $15) for a single, one-hour class.
