Singburi is a beautiful Thai town located 142 kilometers north of Bangkok. It was founded during the reign of King Rama V through consolidation of three small towns located on the bank of The Chao Phraya River, north of Ang Thong. The town boasts an impressive collection of temples and colorful architecture that create the perfect backdrop for the numerous festivals held during the year.
Internet: WiFi is available in public areas.
Laundry: There are laundry facilities offered by local community members for a small fee.
Accommodations: Volunteers will share rooms in local “eco-houses” near Sing Buri. Bedrooms are single-gender and shared between two-four people. Each room has a fan and mosquito nets are available for use. All standard rooms have an en suite bathroom with western toilet and cold-water showers. You may be able to upgrade to a private room for an additional fee, depending on availability. The campus accommodates 30-72 people. The houses are walking distance or a very short bike ride to the local villages of Tha Kham or Tha Chang. There, you can find ATMs, pharmacies, doctors, convenience stores and local food markets. These houses are situated about 8-15 km from the town of Sing Buri. In Sing Buri you will find all the amenities you could need i.e. internet, shops, swimming pool, hospital, pharmacy, banks and restaurants.
Food: During the week, participants will be provided with breakfast, lunch and dinner. On Saturday, volunteers will receive brunch, and then dinner if staying for a volunteer program in Sing Buri. Typical dishes include vegetables with fried rice or noodles. Some Western-style dishes may also be available. Breakfasts are varied and include pancakes, fresh fruit, toast, etc. Tea, coffee and purified water are available at the house. We do not recommend that you drink the tap water.
