When you volunteer in Thailand, adventure is around every corner, – use the opportunity to be immersed in the local culture with chances to explore local attractions in your downtime.

Our base in Chiang Mai is surrounded by breathtaking mountainous scenery in northern Thailand and project work itself takes place in the Mae Chaem District, a 5-hour journey into the mountains, where the famous Karen elephant-keeping communities reside and have shared a unique and sacred relationship with elephants for hundreds of years.

In Phang Nga we work towards marine conservation, environmental education and educational enhancement through teaching, amongst some of the world’s most dramatic and beautiful scenery. Phang Nga is made up of white sandy beaches, tropical islands, amazing limestone rock formations and a rich culture.
