    4.0 - Good

    April this year I returned to Sangkhlaburi for my 2nd time, to work on the construction of the new DREAM House. I first came last year in October, saw some sights, worked on the DREAM House project, and met the kids that all the hard work was for. Seeing these kids, playing with them, laughing with them, made the work I was doing even more rewarding than it already was to me. Before I left SKB I already knew I wanted to come back. Six months later I did and now being home again, I can't wait to go back again. Embrace the hot and sweaty moments, don't care about getting your hands and clothes dirty; you can look pretty at dinner and pay a buck or 2 to get some washing done by a lovely lady. You might be tired at times but at the end of the week all of this is nothing when you see the progress you and the other volunteers have accomplished, another step forward for the project. It feels great knowing your input will provide adequate living and education for the kids, once completed. All of the Starfish staff are great! And my guide in October, Goong, she was wonderful! This isnt a 5 star luxury trip, which you should already know going into it, but that's not what it's about and no way does it mean it's not fantastic. I absoulutely love my time spent here! Explore in your free time and definitly try the local food, pork and chicken skewers for breakfast, yum! and fresh fruit for the day, plus loads more from the local market!

    I spent my time split between Sangkhlaburi and Surin working on a range of projects, but mostly at the Dream House orphange. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Starfish and am so sad its come to an end! Working at the Dream House was without a doubt the best experience of my life! The staff at both the sites were great and I'm going to miss them all! I would definitely recommend Starfish to anyone who wants to volunteer!

    Loved this time of the tour the most. When you see what, and who you are volunteering for, it makes everything even more rewarding. The whole town was so welcoming and friendly, the people made this journey what it was... truly amazing!

    Thailand was an exciting destination that brings out the best in people. I had the pleasure of volunteering for the Dream House. This was an experience that will trail with me for the rest of my life. Not only was it physically challenging, but also very rewarding in have the opportunity to give back to a community in need. It wouldn't have run so smoothing if it wasn't for our enthusiastic and very vibrant guides who made the experience that much more perfect. The guides in any group tour either make it, or break it; however, I can surely say if it hadn't been for Mark or Bottle, the experience may have not been the same. I truly think they made this experience the best that it could be. I would give this trip a 5 star overall. A truly amazing experience.

    Most Inspiring Children I ever met. After meeting the kids no matter what work Starfish asked of me I was ready to do. Be it gardening, building, fixing, teaching, washing, cleaning, ironing or simply entertaining the children. DREAM House is a huge project with massive scope for getting involved in whatever way you wanted. That's what made it interesting so many different ways to help. Great Staff. Good Transport. Comfortable but basic accommodation. Amazing food. Awesome experience!

You get to go and see the kids that you are helping and spend time with them in afternoons after project work if you want also, it gave me that extra push to work even hard to help complete their new home.
