Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that your days will be filled with structured volunteer duties. You’ll have the evenings and weekends to explore however you please. As a rough idea, this is the daily schedule you can expect:

Day 1

Once you have touched down at Bangkok International Airport, your pre-arranged transfer will take you straight to your volunteer accommodation in Khao Tao, only a two-minute stroll from Sai Noi beach. Relax, settle in and meet some of the other volunteers.

Trip location

You'll spend most of your time volunteering in Khao Tao.
