Today is all about work (well, mainly). We start the day by taking the skytrain to Central Group - property developers.
The Central Group were very accommodating, we were all presented with morning tea and a goody bag when we arrived, this was followed by a very professional presentation in a beautiful board room....money is not hard to come by in this organisation.
The Central Group own 10 shopping centres throughout Thailand. They own 25% of leaseable retail space in Bangkok.
The group plans to move into China, India and Vietnam to continue the growth of their business.

From Central Group we take buses to Boon Rawd....aka....Singha Brewery!!
This is a very enjoyable visit. Singha is one of 3 breweries in Thailand, they procedure 500 million litres of beer per annum.
Singha produce the products shown below:
We were also given a quick run down on the brewing process:
After a short presentation we were given a tour of the brewery, unfortunately no photo's were allowed for this part of the visit. The tour was followed by beer!!!
By this time we were all thoroughly enjoying our study tour!
In the evening we all put on some nice clothes and went to Siam Niramit cultural show. This show was all about Thai arts and cultural heritage. http://www.siamniramit.com/show.php
Photo's were not allowed during the show but there is always an elephant around to take happy snaps of.
