Multiphase mixed methods research applying quantitative research to extend qualitative results was used for research design. The qualitative target group was selected using purposive sampling whereas the quantitative sampling group was used two-stage random sampling. Interview guideline and questionnaires were used for measurement design. Qualitative data were classified and analyzed using content analysis and analytic induction. Quantitative data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and the developed model was validated by using LISREL program. Results showed that the instructional model of ASEAN cross cultural learning relating to consequent factors leading to a happy coexistence included 5 components as the following: 1) ASEAN cross cultural learning management; 2) components of ASEAN cross cultural learning; 3) ASEAN cross cultural learning process; 4) activities for cross cultural learning; and 5) coexistence with happiness following the principle of virtues for fraternal living (Saraniyadham). The developed model had its possibility, validity, appropriateness and benefit for the related students and instructors. The result of quantitative quality assessment for creating a generalizability model by validating the consistency between structural equation model of the instructional model of ASEAN cross cultural learning developed from qualitative research and the model developed from the relation between components and variables of the instructional model of ASEAN cross cultural learning were both well coherent and fit with the empirical data (Chi-square = 140.33, df=116, p=0.062, GFI=0.98, AGFI=0.95, RMR = 0.023).
