What to Expect Volunteering in Thailand

Thailand has long been known for it’s friendly people and stunning scenery. The kind-hearted nature of the locals and it’s lively cities has always attracted people to the country, and it makes for a perfect location to give something back.

The country offers such different perspectives, depending on where you are. The north is known for it’s luscious green countryside, Central Thailand has a mix of bustling cities and greenery, and the south is most famous for it’s stunning islands.

Yet Thailand is also home to a huge array of wildlife, from monkeys to elephants. The correct and proper care of these animals is massively important, and most are also considered important parts of the local’s culture and religion.

Our work alongside established projects means our volunteers can really make a difference in ensuring these animals live a comfortable life. RGV’s work in Thailand over the years means we have experienced teams and projects across the entire country. By providing support to these teams here, you can really make an impact as part of an already settled team.

Where are the projects in Thailand?

Phetchaburi

Projects located near this area:

In the heart of Thailand's greenery lies the Phetchaburi region. It is about 2 and a half hours away from Bangkok and is reachable via bus or taxi.

It is also home to the massive Kaeng Krachan National Park, so there's loads of spectacular forests and woodland to see. On the east side, there is the gulf of Thailand, so there's something for those who like being near the water.

Bang Phra

Projects in this area:

Bang Phra is an area about an hour away from the centre of Bangkok, which means you'll get the best of both worlds, the greenery that Thailand is known for, but close enough to a major city if you wish to explore in your spare time.

There are some incredibly beautiful surroundings near the project, and ahead of starting at the project, you'll be taken on a tour of the local area to see it for yourself.
