Asia | South East Asia | Thailand | Bangkok – Volunteer Programme
5.00 am, arrival in the capital of thailand once again… I had to pick up my friend at the airport around 2:00 pm, so I stayed at the hostel and talked to some of the thai volunteers. The youth-hostel started a ‘volunteer-programm’ for thai students . Students can come to the youth-hostel and talk to foreigners to improve their english, and the foreigners get in contact with the locals.
We had an discussion about the differences between the way young Thais act in the public as an couple and western teenager. For example: You would never see a young thai couple, walking hand in hand in Bangkok on the mainstreet.
We also talked about tourism in Thailand. Tourists bring in the money, thats a main statement of every Thai I talked with. It’s hard to find someone who wants to talk about sextourism inThailand, or how touists destroy and change everything like on the southern islands.
