Please note this programme does not include meals, we are often asked why and the answer is simple. You can eat out in Thailand for as little as £2-5. If we included all of your food, you would have to eat in the same place all the time. We feel that there is so much amazing food to discover in Thailand, that you should be able to choose where to eat and when to eat. Going out for dinner is also a social event, you will discover that during the day everyone is training, and you meet in the evening for a nice Thai Curry somewhere. Our rep can tell you all about the nice places to eat.
