    Hello there!

    First of all, PLEASE carefully READ our profile and through the whole thing.

    We are Non and First, a young couple running a beachfront reggae bar and bungalows located on the beautiful island of Koh Phayam in Ranong province in Thailand. We are the first reggae bar on the island and have been opening for over a decade. We have a long-standing history of being the number one live music, and reggae hotspot on Koh Phayam, with famous bands playing yearly. Due to COVID, we closed our place for 2 years and we want to bring it back to life again!!

    Our place consists of a bar and bungalows. There are 4 local staff working here (a carpenter, an electrician, a housekeeper and a bartender). So we are looking for flexible and multitasking volunteers who can help us restore our place and with our daily tasks. You must be a minimum of 23 years old of age or older. Respect and organization are key points for everything and it is important to leave space for everybody.

    We are trying to go plastic-free and absolutely don't like a mess!

    If you are energetic with common sense who knows how a numerous work runs without us explaining too much and you know what needs to be done and able to stay for two weeks, you are welcome at our place and we will have a good time together. And oh we assure you will have plenty of time to enjoy your vacay!

    Koh Phayam is more different than the rest of Thailand and stuff is limited here. We had experience with volunteers who didn't understand how things work and couldn't stand the ways we build or fix stuff (i.e. water system, electricity, tools). They expected it to be as good as what they have in their western/European countries which is barely impossible here. We're saying because we don't want this to happen again. Living on the beachfront isn't easy but we've been working hard and doing our best to restore our place as well as fix it by using what we have. You are welcome to bring ideas on board and see how we could adjust them to our place. We're simple and open-minded people but respect is one of the key points we mentioned earlier.

    The island isn't that big but not walkable so you will have to rent a scooter while you’re here which means you have to be able to ride.

    We don’t have Wifi. So you need to buy a sim card with the internet package. Please only choose TrueMove or AIS. Don't choose Dtac because there's no signal for most parts of the island.

    We are at your disposal for any information you need. Please apply only if you are serious. If you are only looking for free food and accommodation, you best skip our place. Thank you.

    All the best,
    First & Non

    You will be given first-hand information about the lifestyle and environment of Koh Phayam. We will show you around the island and help you understand the circumstances. The cultures here will be varied and different as our neighbors are Thai, Burmese and Moken (sea gypsy), which will give you a more real local experience. You will also make friends and learn from visitors who visit our place. You will learn how to upcycle ocean trash into new items, cooking Thai dishes and a lot more.

    Koh Phayam is considered Thailand's last remaining paradise which consists of beautiful beaches, a relaxing atmosphere, and lots of nature, one that hasn’t been discovered by many tourists (yet). We are located on the most popular beach, Aow Yai Beach (Long Beach) where you can enjoy surfing if you come at the right time and even paddleboarding. The island offers a chilled-out and relaxing atmosphere. It's surrounded by the jungles which are home to monkeys and rare bird species such as the hornbills and the sea eagles. The island also has a lot to offer from island hopping, snorkeling, and fishing, to hiking. There are also other beaches/bays you can explore as well as restaurants and bars you can socialize.

    You will expect to see geckos, spiders, ants, lizards, snakes and other animals on the island.

    Please note that there is no car on the island, just scooters and bikes. And no 24/7 shops or big shops.
