Volunteer life in South Thailand

South Thailand is one the most popular travel destinations in the world!

Buddhism is the main religion in Thailand but in the South Muslims make up the majority.  People speak Thai with a local accent.  Many speak Jahve (Malay).  Some speak English.

People you meet are ethnic Thai, Malay, Chinese, Chao Le (sea people) or migrants, many are guest workers who make a living from tourism, farming and fishing.

Food is very tasty but quite spicy with lots of seafood and fruit, including the famous durian with its equally famous and special smell!

Island hopping, snorkeling, diving and rock climbing are popular tourist activities.  Volunteer also like to learn more about local culture and traditions

Krabi, Ao Nang, Phi Phi Islands, Koh Lanta and Phuket are the most popular destinations.
