International Destinations: Korean Cultural Center in Bangkok

With 32 Korean Cultural Centers around the globe, here's a look at the Bangkok location which gives a glimpse into the daily life of Korean culture.

Located in the heart of Bangkok in the small Koreatown section on Sukhumvit Road, the Korean Cultural Center in Bangkok introduces Thai’s and foreigners alike to the charms of the country.

Opened in July of 2013, the three-story building situated between Soi 15 and 17 features displays of Korea, a cultural performance hall which showcases Korean music, an exhibition hall, a library, multimedia lounge and rooms dedicated to teaching Korean cooking and of course, language.

Its central task is to become a neighborly community organization which helps exchange cultural ideas to create a stronger friendship between the Republic of Korea and the Kingdom of Thailand.

Programs and activities include dance, taekwondo, traditional instruments, special seminars and workshops.

Roughly 2,000 people visit the center each month according to a staff member, participating in Korean language and cooking classes as well as checking out the rotating exhibitions.

The center is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.

There are currently 32 Korean Cultural Centers worldwide, with two in South America, five in North America, 11 in Europe, 11 in Asia, two in Africa and one in Australia.
