THE GREEN LION
Our Tourist Development internship is practical and project based. You’ll assist us in our goal to develop local regions, making it more attractive for both local and international tourists. You’ll be working with a provider with 20+ years of organizational experience worldwide. This unique experience will let you practice any theoretical knowledge and training you’ve gained in a classroom. Our internship provides: Study-affiliated work experience International exposure Practical skills training Knowledge accumulation Teamwork skills All while making a worthwhile contribution to the community. Your work will be coordinated by an English-speaking local with an established background in tourism. The coordinator will guide, supervise and assess you. They will also help out with the language barriers that may exist among local partners. This internship is open to those from a wide variety of studies. Naturally, it is more worthwhile for those with studies affiliated to tourism. But it is also suitable for those with an economics background, since feasibility assessments of plans are always needed. Students with sociological or anthropological studies are also welcome to assess the impact that our work could have on the local community and social environment. Our projects tend to be suitable as a subject for research papers, thesis and dissertation, so feel free to suggest
About the Accommodation Your new home will be one of our 3 ‘Eco Houses’ near Singburi, central Thailand: Lemon House, Twin House and Brown House. They are all located riverside (River Noi – Little River) in the village of Tha Kham and depending on which house you are staying at, is about 8-15km from Singburi (10-15 minutes by car). The 3 houses sleep from 30 to 72 people. All houses have a communal area where you can eat, relax, meet fellow participants or use the free Wifi. Although not directly on site, there are laundry facilities offered by locals which many of our participants take advantage of (this will probably cost you 5? per item, otherwise you can easily wash your clothes by hand.) For participants who desire more comfort and privacy, families, couples and more elderly participants, we recommend upgrading to a comfort room. These rooms are more luxurious, uniquely designed and located apart from the two standard participant residences and so are noticeably quieter. Food Arrangements All the meals served inside the accommodation are vegetarian friendly and will be typically Thai, including plenty of rice dishes and fruits. Water, coffee and tea are available all day long.
You will be located in the outskirts of Singburi, an interesting town 142 km north of Bangkok. Singburi was founded under the reign of King Rama V through the consolidation of 3 small towns located on the bank of The Chao Phraya River. The three small towns, Sing Buri, In Buri and Phrom Buri, were then established as a single town on the west of the Chao Phraya River in 1895. Your new home is set close to the village of Tha Kham, an extremely rural area that will give you the chance to experience the Thailand that very few get to see.
