You will live, work and travel with a group of diverse remote professionals. Each week, in a group dinner participants have a chance to try a new local flavor, and get to know other participants in the program. We’ll discuss our experiences from the week and invite guests from the community to join us.  

Cultural Immersion (Trips and Activities)

VWI is your cultural insider. We'll help you dig deeper into the local culture by providing you access to the best local events and by offering trips and activities trips for the whole group. You will also have the opportunity to learn Thai through immersion or through Thai lessons arranged by VWI with a local tutor.
