Thailand is the travel hub of Southeast Asia and a great destination for first-time backpackers. You will meet interesting people from all over the world! Also, in the same country you can find forests, beaches, temples, diving spots, delicious local food, parties for all tastes. This broad range of activities comes at reasonable prices, if you know where to look. Actually, travelling to Thailand is cheap for most visitors, but it can become even cheaper if you exchange work for accommodation.
Thailand is one of the best destinations for work exchange! In such a small country you can learn about Buddhism helping as a volunteer in a temple, go crazy working in a party hostel or still, relax and enjoy some quiet time by the beach. It’s hard to pick one, isn’t it? You can also do work exchange as a video-maker, bartender, kitchen hand or language teacher. What are your best skills? Start a worldpackers profile and use them in your favor!
