Experience Asia News / ‘Voluntourism’ in Thailand

‘Experience Asia’, supports and promotes ‘Voluntourism’ in several worthwhile categories around Thailand

This is a great opportunity for tourists for ‘giving back’ something positive to local communities and charities during their Thailand stay. This can be a one day or multiple day experience

Some options for voluntourism in Thailand include:

-Elephant Sanctuary to help rehabilitate elephants freed from logging and other restrictive work

-Teaching English in a hilltribe village or orphanage

-Marine conservation, helping to clean beaches on the islands

-Thai wildlife rehabilitation, including Turtle conservation

We would be delighted to recommend specific projects and arrange for a voluntourism experience for your guests
