Our company was founded more than twenty years ago and over that time we have witnessed the massive changes to the Kingdom of Thailand as a result of the tourism boom. While we acknowledge the significant benefits tourism provides locals in terms of improved standard of living and opportunities, we are also all too aware of the often detrimental effect on culture and the environment.
It is you, the traveler, who plays a vital role in the positive development of tourism in Thailand and therefore we encourage you to be mindful when choosing your travel experiences.
We ensure all of our activities do not negatively impact the communities in which we operate and help support the local economy. Throughout the years, we have helped develop a number of homestays to provide long-term sustainable income for local families and we continue to collaborate to this day. Also, our guides are always willing to provide advice and answer your questions about culturally sensitive and responsible ways to travel in this wonderful country.
Community Service Projects
Over the years, we have organized a number of community service projects for countless groups wanting to add a more meaningful element to their travels. Projects have ranged from construction to learning development to decorating buildings to donation trips at remote villages. If you have a group interested in making a positive impact during your time in Northern Thailand, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss project budget and opportunities. Individuals are also welcome to donate clean, pre-loved clothes for us to disperse at local villages in need.
Active Thailand also organizes and provides assistance for school trips to meet CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) requirements for IB (International Baccalaureate Diploma Program) schools. We organize community service projects and active adventure tours while our leaders can help with reflections and video filming.
