We hope to create international understanding, friendship, and goodwill through cultural homestays. Welcome to Amazing Thailand. One of the worlds most exotic countries. Thailand's natural beauty is breathtaking and her people are so friendly. Thai Hospitality is legendary. Thailand has a rich and diverse culture that has endured since time immemorial.
We highly recommend staying with a host family in a homestay during your time in village. Staying with a family allows you to take a privileged look into their lives and really connect with the villagers. You will be made to feel like a member of the family, due to the warmth and hospitality of the villagers. This kind of genuine authenticity can not be replicated in a hotel or guesthouse, and is often the highlight of many peoples' trip. A translator will be with you to allow you to really engage with the villagers on a mutual level.
The homestays are simple and comfortable, each offering a private sleeping area complete with mattress, pillow, mosquito net and fan. The homestays are managed by the villagers on a rotation system to ensure that it is fair for all families. The houses are as different as the families who live in them, ranging from traditional wooden Thai style houses to tsunami housing. Andaman Discoveries follows the queuing system at the request of the villagers. Western style toilets are available in some of the houses.
Travel to Teach has volunteer homestay programs in small villages throughout Thailand. Volunteers can choose to live in the village, either with a teacher's family, in a house owned by the school or with a local familly. Many of the villages we teach in are less than an hours bus ride away from bigger Travel to Teach locations, so for those people who are interested in volunteering in a village but wish to stay in one of the dormitories then there is also the possibility to commute.
Spending time in a village is the best way to fully submerge oneself in Thai culture. Village life allows volunteers to enjoy the simple pleasures of rural Thailand, increase their understanding of Buddhist cultures intergrate into Thai life in a way which is often difficult in larger towns and cities. Experience the culture of the local people, they are ready to show you the way of life from a bygone era. Hang out at the teahouse and shoot the breeze or stay overnight in their homestay scheme - the villagers have put together a package where you can choose any participating house, bungalow or homestay that you like the look of.
