2015 Korean Culture Caravan- Korean Day in Chiang Mai

“Korean Culture Caravan” is a cultural activity to visit where to have the less chance to explore Korean culture. After the Korean Cultural Center (KCC) has been established in July 2013, it has performed to introduce Korean cultures in Bangkok. Even though Korean culture has been introduced in Thailand through Korean popular culture, Korean language, and Taekwondo, it is still not easy to explore in direct. Therefore KCC has provided the activities to introduce Korean culture in rural area by holding “Korean Culture Caravan” annually. Through this event, we can also understand Thai culture and build a network by communicating with them.

In 2013, held in schools in the Central, South, North, and Northeast of Thailand.

– Cooperation with Korean Education Center and the schools which have Korean teachers.

– Six schools in six provinces; Nakhonsithammarat, Krabi, Nakhonsawan, Uttaradit, Kalasin, and Nakhonpathom

– Six events / approximately 1,000 audiences in total
