Nicknamed The Land of Smiles—there are 13 types of smiles used to express everything from extreme happiness to seething anger—Thailand is a country known worldwide for its friendly people, tasty cuisine, ancient temples, and beautiful beaches. Modern day Thailand is a melting pot of Southeast Asian cultures. Known for its distinct rich cultural heritage, learning Thai customs and beliefs will be an adventure all its own. You better start practicing the wai, the traditional Thai greeting. And remember, since Thais consider the head to be the highest part of the body and the feet to be the lowest (spiritually), they would be uncomfortable if you were to touch an adult on the head and it’s considered extremely rude to do almost anything but walk with your feet. It might seem like a vastly different world. Multiple modes of transport—elevated Skytrain, canal boat, three wheeled tuk-tuk, longtail boat, and bamboo rafts. And sights you don’t see every day—shrines, temples, palaces and Buddhas. But the Thai people will make you feel at home with their friendliness and warmth.
Thailand was the trip of a lifetime. From the amazing people and the places we went, it met and exceeded all of my expectations. I loved every single part of the trip especially everything in Krabi and Chiang Mai. By far the best trip leaders and Director ever, loved each and every one of them.
This trip was truly the summer of a lifetime. I am so grateful to have experienced Thailand with amazing friends and staff. The service projects were incredible. They impacted me and gave me a more global outlook on life. I enjoyed every part, the Elephant Sanctuary, kayaking, SCUBA diving, the Chiang Mai School, snorkeling, and many more activities.
