Thailand is not just one of the most visited holiday destinations in the world but is also a highly preferred and popular destination amongst gap year travelers for volunteering abroad. Considering the heavy footfall of volunteers from around the world, looking for a great travel experience in Thailand, Volunteering Solutions has launched a brand new and exciting program in Thailand; the Thailand Experience Voluntour.
To make things clearer and bringing into perspective, here are a few things you must know about this specially designed, brand new program.
A 4 weeks’ extravaganza which will take you to some of the most amazing places in Thailand and will leave you with some thrilling experiences for the lifetime.
This exciting travel expedition will take you to explore the capital city Bangkok, the ‘elephant capital’ of Thailand – Surin, beautiful valley town of Sangkhlaburi, and… wait for it… the party island of Koh Phangan!
Your journey will unfold on your arrival in the capital city of Bangkok. A local coordinator appointed through VolSol will receive you at the airport from where you will be transferred to your accommodation. The first two days of your program will include exploring the bustling city of Bangkok.
On the third day, you will leave for, what is popularly known as, the ‘elephant capital’ of Thailand; Surin. This is where you begin with your first lap of volunteering in Surin. You will be volunteering at an elephant village located near Surin, where you will stay for around 3 to 4 days.
This is followed by a return trip to downtown Surin, where you will stay put for another day to explore the native lifestyle in a typical Thailand small town. Next will be a trip to the western part of Thailand, covered with hilly terrain and pristine lakes, in the beautiful town of Sangkhlaburi; via Bangkok.
This will be your home stay for the coming 5 to 6 days where you will execute your next round of volunteer work. Your main work will revolve around building and renovation work that will include, re-decorating a rural school, installing drainage in a local village, or even building a new village toilet!
After 10 days of handwork and serious volunteering, it’s time to relax and rejuvenate. In order to make that happen, we take you for an exhilarating Thailand experience. Your next halt will be to the scintillating island of Koh Phangan, which will be your homebase for the next 10 days. Make the most of your stay and enjoy every moment of your time.
You will have a plethora of options to experience adventure and fun; such as snorkeling, trekking, kite surfing, or just getting tanned at the beach. One major attraction is the Full Moon Party, which is considered to be one of the most happening party event in the country.
At the end of it all, you will have a spare day to check out any place you may have missed out, or have just found out about, in Bangkok. This brings you to the end of a brilliant and a memorable journey in Thailand.
Why, you ask! For one, this is arguably the most affordable way to explore Thailand. Other factors include;
– No hassle of preparing an itinerary.
– No extra expenses to bare for hiring a local tour guide.
– Opportunity to travel like a local.
– Being on a volunteering trip, whilst enjoying all the benefits of a holiday travel.
– Chance to meet people from different parts of the world and make friends with them.
– Getting to see a different side of Thailand, that a regular traveler may not possibly get to.
The program runs all round the year, which gives you the opportunity to apply as per your schedule. However, it is always advised to apply as early as possible to avoid loosing the spot according to your choice of date. Also, booking a volunteer program in advance has its own additional advantages.
Oh! Now, that’s the easiest part of all. To join this program, all you need to do is, log on to our website and apply for the program. Or, simply get in touch with our advisers at [email protected] where you can, also, get the answers to all your other queries.
