Top 5 reasons to visit and volunteer in Thailand

  • Temples and monks - a visit to Thailand would not be complete without visiting some of the temples in Bangkok. Take a walk around and observe the incredible architecture and intricate decoration. Must see temples include Wat Saket, Wat Arun and Wat Po (where you can also get a massage!).

  • Beaches and islands - need we say any more?! Pristine white sandy beaches, shady palm trees and clear blue sea with colourful corals and fish (you may even spot a whale shark if you are lucky!). Take your time exploring the tropical islands of Koh Phi Phi, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Phuket.

  • Thai cuisine - Thailand is famous worldwide for its cuisine which includes Thai green curry and pad thai to name just a couple! Thai food is based on balancing sweet, salty, spicy and sour flavours. If you have the time, cooking classes are easy to find so you can make some of these culinary delights back home.

  • Festivals - Thailand celebrates several festivals throughout the year including Loi Krathong in November where people launch floats decorated with flowers and candles onto the waterways and light sky lantens. Songkran is traditional Thai New Year, celebrated in mid-April with a country wide water fight!

  • The North - visit the ancient city of Chiang Mai and head up into the ‘Golden Triangle’, where you can go trekking or mountain biking through the unspoilt jungles and visit the hill tribes.
