My fiance and I are planning to travel to SE and to explore the region as a backpacker for aslong as we can (hoping 6 mo - 1 year). We'd like to start our adventures by volunteering somewhere in Thailand/Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia. Does anyone have suggestions of a group or orginization that is honest, hardworking and needs some help?
Any information would help!
I have friends in Phnom Penh that help orphans and poor families with: shelter, food, medical care, schooling etc. No fees involved. If interested, send me a PM.
the elephant nature park in chiang mai was one of the best experiences of my life. you do have to pay $370 a week though, covers lodging and food. the thai elephant is endangered and they are amazing creatures. they also have a new park in surin, closer to bangkok. if you can manage the cost, it is a must do!! good luck
In vietnam, I know operation smile of Faculty of Management and tourism in Vietnam.
You can search on google about this group.
There is no fee teaching English starting from November one hour away from Bangkok.
It's a good location since it's close to Hua Hin and other tourist places.
You should get free accommodation and more in exchange for your input!
send a message and I'll send you more info!
