Oct 22, 2017 | Destinations, Hotels, Paid Internships

Do you want to know what it’s like doing a Hospitality Placement in Bangkok, Thailand?

Hassan Mahmud from University of Surrey started his placement at the Marriott Marquis Queens Park in Bangkok, Thailand in September 2017.

We checked in to see how his overseas placement was going and what he had been up to:

1. What type of work have you done so far?

I’m doing Front Office work but along with other projects too. I’m in charge of creating competition charts, keeping a record of guests employment and helping with English and grammar in hotel materials. 

2. Who is your work supervisor and what kind of support do they give you?

My supervisor is Peyton. She’s amazing! She’s always there if I need help but in general all the managers are great. All are keen for me to do well!

3. What’s the hotel like? Can you describe the location and facilities?

The hotel’s amazing. Facilities are great but I’m not allowed to use them!

4. What are your colleagues like?

Colleagues are all great, new faces everywhere and a joy to work with!

5. Where can you go / what can you do in your time off?

I always set off to see the sights in my free time; temples, buildings, etc. If you look at my instagram: “hassmahmud10” you can find all the things I’ve been up to!

6. What’s the weather like compared to the UK?

Weather’s really warm but I’m used to it now. I just find a place with air con and I’m fine.
