Also, there are various spot to relax like little park, campus restaurants and coffee shops! Moreover, you can appreciate the warm atmosphere of being a student just by looking at teenagers wearing university uniforms. If you are lucky enough, you will get a chance to see some activities around the campus around the year such as cheering stuff or sports day.

There are also interesting traditions like:
1) Chula – Thammasat traditional football game which is the annual football match in January at the Stadium near MBK shopping center,
2) Loy Kratong which is a festival around November,
3) Chulalongkorn Academic Fair which is triennial.

As I am an Arts student, many pictures I took are around my faculty! :)
There are many Thai-style constructions around the Faculty of Arts that combined Thai beliefs and mythology as well.
I think it is a very interesting site to shoot!
