Who we are: A traditional Thai Homestay that helps Kids in our community. Be part of it – be a Volunteer!
Our homestay is located in the wide open and beautifully natural countryside of Singburi in Central Thailand, about 135Km north of Bangkok and about 1.5 hours away from the main city. Central Thailand is quite untouched by travelers as it mainly consists of local farms and small industries, so you will have the benefit of visiting the ‘real’ traditional Thailand.
Our homestay is specifically organized by us – a local Thai family who also are involved with local Thai schools in teaching the children English language. You will live in our traditional Thai property with your own room, or in one of the dorm rooms. Since our homestay offers one-of-a-kind experience, you will be able to enjoy your excursions and volunteer teaching programs (personally arranged by us) at the same time visitors and volunteers.
Our homestay have a range of single, double and dorm rooms, and there are bathrooms near every room as well. In short, our homestay offers a very comfortable place to live in, wherein one can get whole new experiences but still gets home-like treatment.
Our homestay is living with its goal in providing “Home away from home” experience to visitors and volunteers.
