Project Review

If you are interested in volunteering during your time in Thailand, Cultural Embrace can organize week-long projects for you to teach/tutor English, work on environmental/eco projects in the forest and hillside, provide assistance at local orphanages, or volunteer at hilltribe villages. During your Cultural Excursion time you may find that you want to experience Thailand’s rich history and culture by exploring Buddhism, Muy Thai boxing, or eco-tours. Or opt to go on a trek through the hill tribe villages or jungle, which will give you a first-hand look at how Thai minorities live and how pristine and beautiful these areas are.
