Besides being an amazing tourist destination, Southeast Asia is also sought after by travelers that are interested in doing volunteer service. A few hours of work helping the local people guarantees accommodation, a lot of learning, and an enriching cultural exchange. Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand are some of the countries with NGOs and social projects that accept foreign volunteers.
Some cities in Southeast Asia have a lot of social problems and many communities need the help of those who want to travel as a volunteer. The majority of available positions involve helping or teaching kids in many ways. Being a trip with a social purpose, volunteering abroad can be a unique experience.
