Trip Details

As a gap year volunteer in Thailand you will be be guided through meditation and yoga exercises with an experienced yoga instructor, all on beautiful surrounding beaches.

Although Hua Hin is a popular and busy town, our programme and accommodation is set in a rural area not too far away and in a relaxing setting.

In between yoga exercises and relaxing beach sessions, we’ll visit the town several times. You’ll get to enjoy the many lunch options, discover new markets and revel in other sights and sounds.

Yoga is an ancient teaching used to ease the body and the mind via a series of poses called asanas. These improve the health of each and every organ as well as creating muscular strength and the ability to focus and concentrate better. Breathing property is one of the first and most important lessons you’ll learn.

This programme is open to all levels of Yoga practitioners, whether beginner or advanced. That’s because our yoga instructor will adapt to your level.

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.
