Sawasdee Ka! (Hello!) My name is Amanda Aaronian/Ah-mah-lah (my Thai nickname meaning "angel") and I am a second year graduate student at The University of Kansas. When I first visited KU, I was told about this opportunity to study abroad in Thailand for 5 weeks. Once I heard those words, I was sold!
Muang Boran or The Ancient City is the largest outdoor museum in Thailand. This site is comprised of 116 smaller-scale replications of different well-known sites and monuments from all over Thailand such as the Grand Palace, the most famous site in Thailand (located in Bangkok). The park also provides a little insight into the history and culture of Thailand such as a traditional Thai dance performed by two women who were wearing traditional Thai clothing!
