Kasetsart University Plants Fair Thailand

Kasetsart University Plants Fair

As a quick introduction, the Kasetsart University (in Thai language: มหาวิทยาลัยเกษตรศาสตร์) is a university known internationally for academic excellence and work of world standard. It is a prime mover in mustering intellectual resources to help the nation achieve sustainable development and negotiating power in the world community. Kasetsart University was established on 2 February 1943 with the prime aims in promoting subjects related to agricultural sciences.

Lately the university has made an attempt to include medicine and health science. Kasetsart University has 7 campuses throughout Kingdom of Thailand, where its main and flagship campus is at Bang Khen, Bangkok. The total enrollment at Kasetsart University is over 58,000 people, placing it among the top largest universities in Thailand.

In the Bangkok campus there are various fairs held from time to time and we recently attended to a plants fair but not only. If you know the Thai fairs you will know that the food is present always, at all times, in all fairs and places - the food is a great experience in this country.

The flowers and plants festival was a bit smaller than the food fair which covered a large area and provided a lot of delicious options for the hungry crowds! :) There is always a huge crowd attending this kinds of fairs. Some good deals are available but generally it is just a nice place for a Saturday afternoon.

Case you are interested in these fairs or wanna study in Thailand you can drop us a line at the contact form and we will see if there is any way we can help you.
