My name is Walaiphon Thongchan. I am 40 years old. I have happy family with eight years old son. My husband is teacher in primary school. We live in beautiful countryside of southern region in Thailand. (Songkhla province). We owned rubber farm and have organic vegetable garden around the house. We try to live in sustainable. I do work in vegetable garden and sell ours products to local market.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
You will see the real Thailand with local people in countryside. You can learn Thai language, Thai culture. I like cooking and I am good cook so you also can have cooking lesson with me too.
Ideally I would like my helper(s) to devide their time between helping me in the house and garden and helping 5 -12 year old students learn English at the local school where my husband works. The volunteers will be assisting the teachers.
However, depending on your skills/interests and the time of year you are here, I am happy for you to only help at home or the school. Helpers who enjoy gardening and/or teaching would be suitable candidates for this exchange.
You will have your own room with a big bed, but sharing a western style bathroom. We provide healthy meals prepared with fresh ingredients from the garden three times a day. You are welcome to use kitchen to cook your own food if you like.
While you have no work You can use my motorbike to explore area. My house is not far from the beach. It's very nice beach without tourist. Perhaps you will find your own beach. You can walk or use my bicycle to visit villager. The place nearby is local temple and masjid. You can go to Hat Yai city by local train. Train station is very near to my house.
