Background

The Siam Society has an on-going programme of Study Trips. These trips range from one day local excursions, to trips to other countries in the region lasting several days. Wherever the trip is heading, the emphasis will be on nature, history, culture and religion. Where possible good facilities are used but this isn't always possible, for example when staying at a forestry station. Study Trips are often lead by scholars with an in-depth knowledge of the place being visited. The Siam Society has many contacts and sometimes this allows members to visit places not open to the general public.
