When I arrived in Koh Samui, I was greeted by two amazing people-- Tee and Lucy! Tee's smile and laugh will brighten anyone's day.

    My project was absolutely amazing. The coordinators went above and beyond, and the Bamboo Project itself is such an incredibly honorable organization. The money I spent to volunteer went directly to the school where I taught, and all of the employees cared about the community where they worked. I feel very blessed to have been able to work with them

    Aom was my teaching coordinator from Bamboo and she was wonderful! Aom is my favorite person in all of Thailand!! She's very caring and supportive, and helps people become better teachers. Her smile is the quintessential Thai smile, and brightens up whatever room she is in. I had a wonderful time working with her at Ban laem hoy school.

    Extremely friendly, fun-loving, skilled and sincere, Kooga loves working with volunteers to the maximum. She cares deeply about helping new volunteers feel welcomed, settled in and contributing to their best. Off the job, she is a friend you will be grateful to have.

    It will be one of the great experience in your life! Koh Samui is such a beautiful island, also people are so nice. You can try so many things. Koh Samui has beautiful nature and city, you can try two different things at the same time(party on the beach with beautiful nature and people) Don't hesitate:)

    During my time with the bamboo project I was lucky to have such an amazing and supportive staff to assist me. Teacher Ohm was no exception, Jida was much more than a fantastic teacher but a terrific friend. I will alway remember my wonderful time in Thailand and I will never forget Jida Ohm. She is truly an asset to the bamboo family and I was blessed to know her.

    Two years ago I went to Thailand to volunteer with Bamboo! I was fresh out of college and of course, very nervous, as I was traveling across the world alone. When I arrived in Koh Samui, I was greeted by two amazing people-- Tee and Lucy! Tee's smile and laugh will brighten anyone's day. During my visit I felt so comfortable and safe knowing I had an amazing friend, who knew the language and culture so well, that I could lean back on if I needed help! One year later I decided to go back to Koh Samui for a personal trip... I unfortunately got into a motor bike accident and hurt my foot pretty bad. I was very scared considering I do not speak Thai and was not sure where to seek help. I called Tee and he was there instantly to help! He went to the store and got me medicine and cleaning supplies. He even wrapped my foot for me! Bamboo is full of such incredible, genuine people. I am thankful to have met Tee and his amazing girlfriend Lucy! ❤️

    I just finished the volunteering experience with Bamboo project and I had an amazing time. From start to finish the team took such good care of us, never feeling lost or confused. Guided all the way through. Also experiencing the island and all the places was a true blast. I am very thankful, happy, fulfilled, with lots of new friendships and giving lots of stars to the team and the project.

    My trip to Thailand was 100000 times better than I expected! We were given the perfect mix of work and free time. Arm and Tee were so helpful with our travel plans and not to mention great friends too. I am so grateful to have met them and worked on the bamboo project, good luck to you all.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • July 18, 2016

      Can you confirm that the airport pickup is included in the price?

      The airport pick up is included. One of our team will be there to meet you when you arrive.

    • July 18, 2016

      Is the optional Bangkok guided tour included in the price, or is it an additional expense on top?

      The tour of Bangkok is included in the cost of the trip but you don't have to join it if you don't want too.

    • March 29, 2016

      Can you provide more details on the accommodation? Is the Airport transfer covered in the package? And is the transfer applicable from Suvarnabhumi Airport as well as Don Mueang International Airport?

      Each house sleeps around 7 and features fitted kitchen, western bathrooms, hot water, electricity, FREE WiFi and best of all, they're just a 5 minute walk to the beach!

      On arrival in Bangkok we will collect you from Suvarnabhumi airport, but we're unable to offer that service from Don Mueang. If you do fly in to Don Mueang it's very easy to get to our guesthouse and would cost around 400B in a taxi ($13). You'll also get to have a night out with our team in Bangkok, a guided tour of Bangkok city and a traditional Thai welcome lunch. It's a great weekend and it's the best way to get to know your fellow volunteers who you'll travel to Samui with.
