WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
You'll fly into Bangkok International Airport on the weekend preceding your project where you'll either be collected by a friendly project representative or if you prefer you can meet the project coordinator at the Royal Hotel in Bangkok on the Sunday at 1pm.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
Your new home will be a shared eco-house in a volunteer camp in central Thailand. The camp is situated about 10 km from the town of Singburi where you will find all the amenities you could need such as internet, shops, swimming pool, hospital, pharmacy, banks and restaurants. There are plenty of organised trips into Singburi or you can easily take a short and affordable 15 minute taxi ride.
The houses sleep from 20 to 50 people. All houses have single gender twin shared rooms and Western style toilets. Each bathroom has a shower and the water is always cool – nice and refreshing in the heat! All houses have wifi, laundry facilities and a communal area where you can eat, relax and meet. The doors and windows are screened to protect you from mosquitoes and there are fans in each room. There is also an internet cafe situated locally.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
All food is included during your stay. The meals will be typical Thai fare, including plenty of rice and noodle dishes. Thai is one of the world's most exciting cuisines, and if you're willing to experiment, you'll be richly rewarded. Contrary to popular belief, not all Thai food is fiery hot and there are plenty of tasty dishes suited to the Western palate. This hybrid cuisine has been influenced by soups and noodle dishes from China, curries from India and satays from Indonesia. Most dishes incorporate four elements: sweet, sour, salty and hot flavours.
