About the Location

Bangkok is an exotic mix of sights and sounds, and the old and new. There is much to explore in the city—ancient temples, the Grand Palace, vibrant markets and sprawling parks. NIST is located on Sukhumvit Soi 15 in the Asok business district, close to shops, restaurants, and many options for student housing. The school is easily accessible by public transportation (BTS Skytrain or the MRT subway) followed by a short walk, or by taxi.
