l I've just got back from the most amazing trip to Thailand. I had to leave early :( unfortunately. So I think I'm going to go back next year. I feel like I didn't do it properly. I also want to go to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. I want to do some volunteering along the way , looking to work with either children , people with special needs or addicts . I don't really know where to start looking. I don't want to pay to volunteer as I don't think I'm going to have that much money . But would rather give my time. If anyone could suggest anywhere that they know of that you can just turn up and volunteer . Or just any general tips about finding volunteer work in these countries that would be great , thank you. Also does anyone have a suggestion of what route they would do because I've looked at flights, and even with adding in busses and everything it's so much cheaper to fly to Bangkok , as far as I can see anyway. Thanks anyway :)

Julie,
I have friends in Phnom Penh that help orphans and poor familes with: housing, food, schooling, medical, etc. No fees involved. If this is something you might want to get involved in, send me a PM. Mike

Thailand has very beautiful places to visit. You can visit all beautiful places but alone it is little difficult. Hope you will find someone to company you at your next visit to Thailand. All the best for your visit.

I would suggest you to Do 1 Place at a time...

What i feel the most people do over here is to cover maximum places in the minimum time and in that case some or other things are missed during the trip.

Like I remember that I couldn't go to the Tiger Temple because me and my friends didn't researched properly and our plan was just for 4n5d and it was like a hush hush kind of scenario...

Though we covered most of the Major temples at BKK and Pattaya especially the Temple of Truth.

So would advice you to make it more planned, make your booking in advance so that you can get cheaper rates of flights, negotiate well regarding stay and plan accordingly what activities you would like to do.

hv fun...
