The location of the camp is in Phuket. Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand, it is a beach lover’s paradise. Gorgeous white sand, tropical jungle, and a warm welcoming atmosphere await. If you have not been to Thailand before, you will be amazed by how welcoming the Thais are. For the duration of the education, you will be staying on sight at the training facility, which is located in the centre of Phuket towards the south. You are only about 10 minutes away from the beaches, although you are not right by the beach. The environment around the camp is very much focused on training. It is a little secluded which is perfect because the temptation is not there to break from your routine, however, there is plenty to do and beaches and activities are very accessible. There is plenty of good nightlife in and around Phuket Town which is only a couple of minutes away by taxi.
