Volunteer Teaching & Beach Experience in Thailand
Volunteer Teaching & Beach Experience in Thailand
Looking for a different volunteer experience in Thailand? Look no further as we’ve got you covered here at TRU! Our Volunteer Teaching & Beach Experience in Thailand is like no other, as you ‘teach and beach’ your way through your exciting week! After a day of working with little ones who are eager to learn from you, we will take you to a different beach every day, where you will be able to sit back, relax and unwind amidst white sand and crystal-clear blue waters. This programme provides the perfect balance of vocational experience and holiday fun, allowing you to do good and feel good at the same time!
Teach Children of all ages to give them a Better Start in Life
Teaching children of any age between 3 and 18, you will gain valuable experience, using different methods for different age groups. As state schools don’t commonly teach English, your input will be greatly appreciated here! In fact, the teachers themselves often enjoy picking up a few words in English themselves. This programme is, of course, not just about teaching English; it’s about helping these children to build their confidence levels, learning the value of an education, and daring to dream of future careers! So why not help to make a real difference to these children, whilst you explore Hua Hin and the many surrounding beaches that offer an idyllic place to relax and recharge your batteries.
Discover Stunning Thailand and its friendly Communities
You will have heard stories about Thailand’s incredible temples, vibrant communities and fascinating culture. Well, they are all true! And on this programme, you will have the opportunity to plan your own outings with fellow volunteers, to the most amazing places in the Hua Hin district and beyond! Hua Hin itself is a popular tourist destination, and you’ll find a wealth of bars, restaurants and beach resorts, as well as water sports, from kayaking to kite-surfing! You’ll also be able to relax and simply enjoy your time here at our comfortable accommodation, with pool, hammocks and communal areas, set against the hilly countryside of Prachuap Khiri Khan. Whatever you are looking for, you will find it in Thailand on your Volunteer Teaching & Beach Experience!

Places to Visit
Hua Hin is a lively fisherman-town and popular tourist destination, and it has a lot to offer besides just sunbathing, snorkelling and swimming at its golden beaches. Not only are there plenty of seafood restaurants and other eateries to choose from, but visitors can also enjoy golf, spas, shops, markets (including a popular night market), and Hua Hin’s Vana Nava water park. We recommend you also visit Khao Tekiab, a mountain at the end of the beach with a temple atop that overlooks the sea.
In addition, Hua Hin is surrounded by beautiful national parks and you might decide to go slightly further afield to explore the likes of the Pa La-U Waterfall, located 60 km west of Hua Hin on the south side of the Kaeng Krachan National Park. Alternatively, 45 km to the south of Hua Hin is the mystical Phraya Nakhon cave for the more adventurous!
Hua Hin is one of Thailand’s most popular beach destinations and is located only 280km Southwest of Bangkok. Hua Hin is where the city meets the sea, and offers scrumptious seafood, lively markets, never-sleeping bars, long beaches and palm tree-decorated landscapes to enjoy during your stay!

From trekking in the beautiful mountains of the north to enjoying the glorious beaches in the south and experiencing the hustle and bustle of the metropolis that is Bangkok, Thailand is certainly not a country that lacks variety.
Whilst it really is at the heart of Southeast Asia, bordered by Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia, its cultural identity remains very unique. As the only country in Southeast Asia to avoid European powers, the Thai are proud to refer to themselves as ‘The Land of the Free’ and many tourists might also know it as ‘The Land of Smiles’ due to its friendly people.
Thailand is not only a famous holiday and gap year travel destination, but one of the most exciting countries in the world. Gap year travel to Thailand enables you to experience the excitement of city life as well as the serenity of some of the most spectacular remote islands and countryside areas. By booking your gap year holiday to Thailand with TRU, you will be able to get a unique view of this amazing country that is difficult to replicate on your own. We have a fabulous selection of gap year adventures in Thailand from Gibbon encounters and Elephant Sanctuary work to Clayhouse building and volunteering programs.
With our range of ongoing programs, you can even compose your schedule the way you like it. With this flexibility it enables you to say when you are on site and when you spend time with the new friends you have made from all over the world. Have a look at our latest volunteering and gap year travel to Thailand below or give us a call to find out more about our exciting gap year programs in Thailand.
