Thailand earned its reputation as one of the premier tourist destinations in the world through its gorgeous landscape, beautiful culture, relaxed lifestyle, and the truly warm-hearted nature of its people. Students and graduates who choose to do an internship in this Southeast Asian destination have the opportunity to build their resume through a meaningful work experience in a growing market. The city of Bangkok, the site for the World Endeavors Intern in Thailand program, offers a wide range of internship options, from environmental conservation to international business to architecture. On weekends and holidays, interns can take advantage of affordable travel to explore the many attractions Thailand has to offer.
For those interested in Southeast Asian culture, this is the perfect opportunity to gain valuable work experience while being immersed in this distinctive country.



Bangkok is a city unlike any other. As one of the largest metropolitan areas in Asia, Bangkok is a bustling, thriving city that pulses with the everyday energy of millions of people who call it home and the equally large population of international visitors. To live in Bangkok is to truly be at the heart of the action and to get a sense of the world coming together to work, play, and exchange ideas.

World Endeavors offers internships in a wide range of professional fields in Thailand, and our advisors are proud of their ability to find great opportunities in unique and highly specialized fields.

Though some internships may be located outside the city (and therefore carry an extra fee), World Endeavors offers internships in Bangkok in the following fields:



World Endeavors interns in Thailand live with local host families in shared or single rooms with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. In some cases, interns may have the option to live in a single or shared apartment. Housing is located in close proximity to public transportation, which, in Bangkok, includes buses, subways, boats, and even an elevated Skytrain.

Dates And Costs

Internships are available year-round, and each placement is customized for the participant. This means World Endeavors interns can choose when they would like to start their program, the duration of their internship and their desired field. Due to holidays, traditional vacation schedules, and seasonal work availability, there might be better times than others to intern in a specific location or in a specific field.

When you are ready to start planning your internship, contact us. Our experienced advisors will help you sort through any timing consideration unique to this internship destination or your internship field.

Please wait until after you are accepted into the program and you have received the confirmed arrival and departure dates before you book your flight.

Please note: generally, the minimum program duration for interning in Thailand is 2 months. Contact World Endeavors if you would like to go for a shorter duration.
