Volunteer in Thailand

Amazing Thailand!

Thailand is a warm and friendly country and no doubt you’ll fall in love with the place and the people as soon as you arrive. They call it ‘The Land of Smiles’ and there’s no other place in the world as open-hearted or welcoming, so volunteering in Thailand is the perfect way to make new friends and fully immerse yourself in a brand new culture. Thailand is also a country which seems to have something special for every type of traveller; from its spectacular beaches and dreamy islands, dramatic temples and colourful history, to the bustling cities and the most exciting nights out, you’ll soon find a place to fit right in.

Our volunteer in Thailand programs for teaching and community volunteering are located in Phang Na along the Andaman coast, a spectacular paradise region in the South. Based in the Kuraburi district by the Nang Yon River, you’ll have access to beaches, unspoilt wildlife and fantastic street food at the local markets. Just a few hours away are the popular areas of Phuket, Koh Samui, and Khao Lak and you’re also close to the beautiful Surin Islands.

The Andaman Coast was destroyed during the Tsunami of 2004 and it hit the community and uprooted many at the time. Ten years on and things are much better however there is still need for help as many lost all their money in rebuilding their lives. There are a lot of Burmese migrants also living along the Andaman Coast and we are working with the children of these migrant families as well.

Phang Na and beyond: There is much to see in the wider Andaman region, and there are some incredible national parks including Koh Surin Marine National Park, Koh Ra National Park, Khao Sok National Park and Laem Son National Park. The South is also known for its quaint, remote and traditional villages places where you can really get a taste of rural life in Thailand and some of our favourite places include the seaside village of Ban Talae Nok, the mountain village of Nakha, and the island villages of Ta Pae Yoi, Tung Dap, Tung Nang Dam and Ban Lion.

Phuket: The Island of Phuket is home to some of Thailand’s best beaches and from here you can also get to the famous Phi Phi Islands. If you’re looking for a lively contrast to our quaint and peaceful location in Kuraburi, the bustling streets and party atmosphere of Phuket will definitely draw you in at the weekends. Not to mention the striking rainforest and mountain backdrops plus the white sandy beaches that most travellers can’t get enough of.

Khao Lak: Away from the crowds, there’s also Khao Lak, a highlight for those in search of peace and something slightly more off the beaten path. Apart from a few tourist villages dotted along the highway, Khao Lak remains untouched. Home to unblemished beaches and part of Thailand’s largest remaining rainforest plus endless waterfall walks and a number of Buddhist temples, this is a traveller’s haven and one of our best kept travel secrets.




In the Tsunami of 2014, the Andaman Coast of Southern Thailand was devastated. Communities were uprooted and many died in the tragedy. We are working with a local grass root organisation that is helping to rebuild communities in North Andaman side of Thailand. Only a few hours away from the touristy areas of Phuket, Koh Samui, and Khao Lak, a very different experience awaits you. Here, in the beautiful Northern Andaman region of Southern Thailand, friendly communities invite you to experience their traditional way of life and diverse eco-systems in an authentic and non-intrusive way.”

Why Volunteer in Thailand?


Friendly People

Thailand is ‘œThe Land of Smiles’ and the Thai people are extremely welcoming of foreigners. It’s in their nature to make you feel at home and they have no qualms about striking up conversations with strangers, so you’ll never feel alone’¦


Beautiful Beaches

Not only is Southern Thailand bursting with picturesque beaches and spectacular coastlines, but it’s also home to some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling spots in the world, so there’s plenty to do at weekends. You can head off to Phuket or Krabi on weekends.


Natural Heritage

You’ll be based by the North Andaman coast, where two of the oldest ecosystems on earth still survive, the coral reefs and the Southeast Asian Rainforest. Our Volunteer Projects are close to the Khao Lak National Park where you can enjoy amazing diving and snorkelling.


The BEST Street Food

Street food in Thailand is the best way to experience real Thai cuisine and it’s often be coined as the best street food in the world. Fresh food and live cooking make it better than a lot of restaurants! So make the most of this culture and embrace cheap eats!
