What to Bring

  • Sunglasses
  • Insect repellant
  • Camera, film, and extra batteries
  • Sandals, flip-flops, and trekking shoes
  • English – Thai dictionary
  • Photos of your family, hobbies, and friends, as villagers are always interested in learning about other cultures and lifestyles

  • Swimming costume (shorts and a T-shirt)
  • Rain coat for the green season (June – Oct)
  • Several t-shirts that cover the shoulders
  • Sun hat
  • UV Sunscreen
  • Personal medication
  • A sarong (suitable for wearing to and from the bathroom)
  • A souvenir from your country as a present for hosts (not expensive or luxurious, just something fun like a postcard or calendar)
  • Torch (flashlight) and extra batteries
  • Binoculars (if you have them)
  • Plain white t-shirt or dress (if you’re doing a batik activity)
