Thai teacher tourism

Is this a good thing or not?

There is obviously a steady supply of foreigners who are happy to pay for the experience and companies who can make good money from this business.

Postbox letter from George Bowman

Volunteering at a Thai children's home

Taking care of 30 lively kids at a Chumphon orphanage

A lovely Thai couple, P'Nui (Mama) and P'Nong (Papa), run the orphanage. They were exceptional Thais not only because they were Christians, but also because they were so warm and friendly. I was made part of the family straight away


At home with Pee Tim

An interesting Thai homestay / work exchange

Peetim's ESL homestay offers volunteers lodging, food, laundry, transportation, and Thai culture in exchange for teaching English in her government and private schools.


Are you a social butterfly travelling alone?
