It’s time to try something different!
-Been to all the major tourist spots in Thailand and Indochina?
-Seen all the temples, taken a trek, ridden an elephant and lazed on the beach?
…travelling beyond your normal frontiers.
…the old days when it was a great adventure and all about meeting new people in distant lands.
…caring and being passionate about people, places, nature and the environment.
These thoughts are the inspiration of our communities & homestays programmes.
Stay with a family, see their daily routine and help with their work, whether farmers or fisherman. Try your hand at the local handicrafts and do a little voluntary work at the local school. These trips will bring you closer to the local people and enable you to learn more about our culture and our way of life than will the usual tourist trail. Give them a try for a rewarding and enriching holiday.
Some of our suggestions of trips for Communities & Homestays:
