About Thailand

Thailand has a rich culture, mostly influenced by the Buddhist religion and some remnants of animism in the north and these still strongly impact day-to-day life. Thailand is one of the must-see countries of the world, and some of the sights and attractions feature on many peoples’ ‘bucket list.’ The chance to immerse yourself in this fascinating, stunning and culturally rich country is not one to pass up, and volunteering with the Thai communities while you are there will make the whole experience even more memorable and worthwhile. After all, travelling while making a lasting positive impact through ethical tourism and volunteering is the best way to travel and to contribute towards keeping the ‘must see’ sites available for others in the future.

Northern Thailand is home to Doi Inthanon, the highest mountain in Thailand, which is decorated with two colourful pagodas and set in a lush mountainous surrounding that northern Thailand is so well known for. Thailand is often known for its stretches of luscious beaches, bustling cities and vibrant nightlife, but it also offers visitors with abundant culture through endless amounts of temples and the ultimate traditional experience of Hill Tribe life.
