THAILAND’S MOST AFFORDABLE VOLUNTEER TRAVEL PROGRAM
Our Goal is to further the education and quality of life for the people living in the beautiful village of Wiang Pa Pao, Chiangrai Thailand. This will be accomplished through our continued presence with the community, the growth of our sustainable economic and educational initiatives, and through the skills and expertise that our travellers bring to Treetop Country with them. You have more value and more to offer than you have been led to believe!
Treetop Country is an experience I won’t soon forget. The Treetop community is tight-knit, like a family, and everyone makes you feel at home. I loved the relaxed vibe of Wiang Pa Pao and the kindness of the people there. We spent our time visiting children at the local elementary school, exploring Wiang Pa Pao by bike, sightseeing in Chiang Rai, cooking, learning, laughing, playing, and enjoying. We had SO much fun.
I came with my husband Tony and four other couples from Malaysia. We were really impressed how beautiful and natural Treetop Country is. The people we met working at Treetop were great, always helpful and courteous. The drive from the airport was so scenic. After our first day, we really appreciate how wonderful co founder Sasi Meechai and her husband Allan who were around to host us.
When you think of teaching English abroad, Treetop Country has to be the dream above all else home away from home. Where do I begin, from Chiang Mai it's about an hour north to Chiang Rai, you arrive to your tree house and you won't really believe you're sleeping in a tree house made of wood and bamboo, its just amazing. The schools, the teachers, the kids in every class- you'll never forget the way people treat you. You'll never forget how eager children are intrigued to learn English from you.
It has been a wonderful experience at Treetop, meeting new people, travelling Thailand and helping young children learn English. The children were the highlight, they are so eager to meet volunteers it was lovely to be a part of their learning experience.
Being a family-run organization, you truly felt you were at home. The hospitality was incredible- home cooked meals, hot showers, and the most awesome living accommodations built by previous volunteers. It was great to be able to experience the local culture, away from all the tourists you find in the big cities (i.e. Chiang Mai) - everyone is so friendly.
Two of my friends and I travelled Southeast Asia this summer for 6 weeks, and I can honestly say that our week spent at Treetop Country was the most memorable! Treetop Country was an amazing way for us to get off the beaten track, and to immerse ourselves in the culture of Wiang Pa Pao.
I have originally planned to volunteer at Treetop Country for a month, but ended up extending my stay to almost two months! The students are eager to learn and take every opportunity to practice English with the volunteers after class. During my stay, there are usually 4~6 volunteers so I never felt lonely but at the same time take advantage of a close knit group.
Tree Top country, in my opinion, is the ideal destination for volunteers looking to make the most of there time in the north of Thailand. I have previous expierence volunteering through an organization that left me feeling as if I wanted to continue my travels solo, this was not so at Treetop. During my time at Treetop I felt apart of a family largely due to all of the friends and neighbors that welcomed us and brightened our stay during our time at Treetop. The staff was an enormous part of what made volunteering so great
Best experience of my life ! All the workers and locals made you feel like part of tree top family straight away , would go back in a heart beat
