GIVE: Laos Experience
The Laos Experience is a perfect combination of white-knuckle adventure, cultural immersion, meaningful volunteer work and, last but not least, moon bears! Some of your project work will focus on improving the lives of these amazing creatures and protecting them from the dangers of poaching, while also supporting rural communities with Education and Eco-Friendly Infrastructure projects. You will also be fully integrated into a Buddhist monastery as local monks teach you about the ancient practice of meditation. Try out a more physical form of meditation with sunset and sunrise yoga sessions on the riverbank, surrounded by the stunning mountainous landscape of Northern Laos. Round out your expedition by kayaking to remote villages and trekking through rice paddies and jungle paths to a hidden waterfall! Come see for yourself why Laos is the best-kept secret in SE Asia!
“As soon as we walked into the village, I knew that I had found it. Tiny bamboo huts dotted along a mountain-top clearing with rolling green hills and limestone cliffs in the distance - all I could do was sit down and breathe it in. This was the quintessential SE Asian experience I had been searching for over the last 3 years.”

If Laos is “Simply Beautiful,” then Thailand is undoubtedly “The Land of Smiles.” Neither motto disappoints and both countries complement one another perfectly. Before diving headfirst into the various social, environmental and developmental issues facing Laos, familiarize yourself with the cultural roller coaster of our Thailand Immersion program. A trip that will take you from the urban eccentricities of Chiang Mai, through several remote hill-tribe villages, and down the mighty Mae Tang River on a bamboo raft, stopping along the way to play with elephants! This combo is designed to leave you with a complete understanding, genuine appreciation and inspiration to explore even more of this fascinating region of the world.
