Review

I did the program in november last year and loved it!

We had a great guide both in the intro week and elephant sanctuary I did and felt I got good insights into thai culture. The intro week in Singburi has you seeing and doing a range of things like making bracelets and visiting the famous monkey temple, whilst all meals are provided (traditional Thai food and you can buy cocktails for $3!) and transportation is organised (pick up trucks). It's not a typical tourist place so its not as westernised as the rest of Thailand, thus I felt it a more accurate place and representation of thai culture.

The second week in Umphang was amazing! If you do the elephant sanctuary you'll be staying here. It's a 10 hour plus drive up but it's worth it for the views and to see the elephants. You'll get to prepare the food for them, wash them in the river nearby and can opt for a short ride if you like.

I felt safe the entirity of the trip and met a great bunch of people whom i've stayed in touch with after we've split! I would reccomend!

Would you recommend this program?
