What to expect in Thailand

Charming, accessible, and full of tropical graces, Thailand draws millions of travelers each year to its corner of Southeast Asia. Ecological treasures like beautiful beaches, forests with waterfalls, and cheery orchids are ready to be discovered here. Even in raucous Bangkok, a glinting Buddha or an ornate temple can be found amidst the maze of human construction and bustling markets. The Thai people are proud of their cultural heritage and their country (which has never been colonized) while embracing the “mai pen rai” approach to life, meaning “no worries.” After spending some time in Thailand, travelers can’t help but take away a bit of this attitude as well.

Recent Thailand Testimonials

Samhita BInternship in Thailand

Want an ultra responsive and helpful team in your internship program? Then this program stands on the top! Being my very first internship, World Endeavours helped me in every way, providing me informative advice before my trip and even during my stay at my internship destination.

John GIntern in Thailand

Skeptical at first how beneficial this program would be especially considering the costs but I can confidently say it was all well worth it. Pre-program support was amazing - I was applying for an internship and hoping/needing it to start within 3-4 weeks for it be beneficial for me. Natalie from World Endeavors was able to stay on top of all processing, reviewing, and clarifying that eventually eased my worries about the program and short time frame. The internship itself was something I could not have obviously experienced in my own country and culture but it was much more than that. My supervisor was more like a mentor who was genuinely interested in teaching and exposing me to situations one cannot find in a book or on the internet. I owe much of my positive experience to my supervisor, the university I was able to work in, and my coordinators who were able to bring me to this opportunity. Opportunities like these may need some luck but no matter what support from World Endeavors was always there. From the very beginning, all the way through, and even once the program was over - World Endeavors was genuine invested and greatly contributed in my program success.

Rachael CIntern in Thailand

I had the most incredible experience interning in Bangkok, Thailand through World Endeavors. They placed me in a host family that was so kind and the Thai advisor was always there for me when I needed anything during my stay. I learned so much about Thai culture and Buddhism and had a great internship that taught me a lot about the medical field. I would highly recommend to anyway who is ready for an adventure.

Maria PVolunteer in Thailand

I have always wanted to combine volunteering, travelling and discovering new cultures. This summer thanks to World Endeavors I made it! I went volunteering for 3 weeks in Thailand, and it was one of the best experiences of my life! I had the possibility to work in a school, helping the kids improving their English, and living with local people there, which was amazing and so involving because I could get to know Thai people’s lifestyle and habits in depth, which is impossible as a normal tourist.
I think that World Endeavors is a great organisation, that helped me step by step. First through informative emails, second with Skype calls, third with the help of the in-coordinator in Bangkok, a person I could always count on during all my stay.
All the staff is very kind and helpful and they were very fast at answering any questions I had.
I strongly recommend it for everyone who is interested in a life changing experience!

Madison OIntern in Thailand

My experience with World Endeavors was truly life-changing! The staff and my host family went above and beyond to make me comfortable and give me a truly immersive experience. Additionally, I got hands-on clinical experience that I could not have gotten in the United States.
