Our volunteer house is secure, clean and has a comfortable and welcoming living environment. The house is located near the work placement for your volunteer program in Thailand, and there are several facilities nearby like internet cafes, grocery stores, restaurants and public transportation.

There are multiple comfortable bedrooms, each with two to three single beds and shared between volunteers of the same gender. The beds and bedding are comfortable and clean and, and each bedroom is equipped with tidy bathrooms with running water and western style flushing toilets.

Volunteer in Thailand Project: Meals

While volunteering in Thailand, volunteers working in Ayutthaya will receive two meals a day, consisting of breakfast and dinner, while volunteers working in Surin and Chiang Mai will NOT have meals provided. However, there is a kitchen that you can use in the volunteer house, as well as many nearby restaurants, street food vendors and convenience stores/supermarkets.

Something that strikes a lot of travelers in Thailand is how cheap it is to eat even the best and most amazing dishes, as well as the sheer amount of variety on hand. The best way to experience the real Thailand is to taste the many different local specialties offered by street food vendors at an incredibly cheap price!

Thai cuisine is signified by lightly cooked ingredients and strong aromas and spices. Thai food is all about the details, whether its intricacy, texture, taste, color or the use of medicinally beneficial ingredients.

The most popular Thai food includes Spicy Shrimp Soup, Spicy Green Papaya Salad, Chicken in Coconut Soup, Red Curry, Thai style Fried Noodles, Fried Rice, Fried Basil and Pork, Green Chicken Curry, and many more. .
