Volunteer in Thailand with Friends for Asia

Bangkok Volunteer Accommodation

Bangkok is a world-class metropolis, but it has something of a layout dilemma. This is a sprawling city, and it can take much longer than expected to connect between any two points in the Thai capital. This is only exacerbated by traffic, which is intense throughout the day and particularly during the grueling rush hours.

When volunteers are looking for a place to stay in Bangkok, one of the most important considerations is access to public transport. We chose a location along the BTS skytrain. This means, regardless of where you are headed, you can ride above the gridlock, and connect quickly to any other location along major public transport arteries.

We also have great local full-time Thai coordinators on staff that not only help with all the logistics that you may have with your project, but also assist in booking bus tickets, train tickets, taxis, etc. – for weekend trips visits to other areas of the city and fun activities that most of our volunteers like to go and do while volunteering or interning in Bangkok.

Volunteer Accommodation Location

When we were scouting locations in Bangkok for our volunteer accommodation, access to public transport was nonnegotiable. You’ll appreciate having access to the skytrain, whether you’re bound for your volunteer project in the morning, heading to a rendezvous at a trendy nightspot in the city or striking out on a weekend sightseeing excursion. The closest sky train station to our volunteer and intern accommodation is only an 8 minute walk!

You’ll be staying in a quiet, up-market neighborhood just outside the city center. There are several restaurants and street stalls serving authentic Thai fare, as well a local coffee shop, within about ten minutes’ walk of our accommodation.

Bangkok Accommodation Facilities

The Bangkok volunteer accommodation is a haven away from the chaos of Bangkok. It’s an ideal place to unwind and visit with other volunteers and travelers after spending the day at your volunteer project site. The space is a hostel type set up. Therefore volunteers and interns will become friends with people from all over the world.

Volunteers are welcome to use the on-site kitchen to prepare meals. Breakfast is provided each morning.

Free broadband Wi-Fi broadcasts throughout the hostel. There is also a grassy common areas where you can visit with others or simply kick back on one of the mats. We host volunteers from all over the world, and you’ll probably learn as much about other parts of the world in the volunteer house as you do out on assignment.

Our Volunteer Coordinators

Our coordinators are on-site to assist throughout the day. They’ll help you locate your project, introduce you to the staff you’ll be working with and show you the best way to get home at the end of the work day. We’re picky when it comes to staff selection, and we only hire coordinators who have a strong command of English and an open mind when it comes to foreign cultures. Along those lines, many of our coordinators have spent some time living or studying abroad.

Thanks to FFA’s volunteer coordinators, you’ll never feel like you’re alone while volunteering in Bangkok. They know the city, the people and the project sites forwards and backwards. If you have any questions or concerns, they’re there to provide you with everything you need.
