Where we are based in Thailand

Koh Tao

Your volunteer work in Thailand will take place on Koh Tao. This is where you’ll join international volunteers on your project and meet staff in our local office.

Renowned for its stunning beaches and crystal clear water, Koh Tao is a brilliant base from which to explore Thailand. This tropical island is famed for having some of the best dive sites in the world and is a fantastic place to see a variety of marine life. Sea turtles, sharks, whale sharks and dolphins are regular sights across the Chumphon Archipelago. 

When you aren’t by the sea, Koh Tao offers a relaxed pace of life. Friendly divers are the main inhabitants of the island. However, there are plenty of chances to experience traditional Thai life through cooking classes, dance, and shows.

Whether you volunteer in Thailand for a week or two months, our staff will help you to get the most out of your experience. They’re locally based experts on Thailand as a travel destination. They’ll be more than happy to help you explore.

Airport pickup, flights and visas

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Thailand Arrival Procedures page.
