Spend your summer in Thailand! There are paradise-like beaches, smiling & hospitable people, overwhelming spirituality, delicious & exotic cuisine, ancient ruins & pristine white beaches. Thailand is one of the most popular destinations in Southeast Asia for volunteers and travelers. From rural lush green rice paddies to the pulsing nightlife of Bangkok, IFRE's Summer in Thailand program offers something amazing for everyone.
Arrival in Bangkok (1 night)
Your Thailand adventure will begin as you arrive in Bangkok. Our in-country staff will pick you up and bring you to a hostel hotel near the famous and exciting backpacker destination, Khoa San Road in the heart of Bangkok.
Transfer to project location for volunteer project (7 days)
The next step in your summer journey is a trip to your choice of volunteer project: working in the elephant project or in a building project. Volunteers working in the elephant project will help to provide basic care, treatment and love to elephants, learning from mahouts (elephant handlers). Volunteers who choose to work in the building project will get their hands dirty and help to construct an orphanage as part of the D*R*E*A*M House Development Project in Surin.
Relax and Explore the Regional Beaches (6 days)
Spend time on the glorious beaches of Thailand! It's time to head to Kho Pa Ngan, one of the most popular islands and tourist destinations in Thailand. The island is known for its beach parties, pristine sand beaches and vibrant culture. Spend five nights at a beach resort and explore all the island has to offer before returning to Bangkok for the conclusion of the program.
Travel back to Bangkok for Farewell (1 night)
You will then travel back to Bangkok and spend one last night with your new friends and project staff.
