My name is Taksin and I own an elephant sanctuary with my wife, Nuh, close to the historical city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. As a tourist guide I show interested guests our work with the elephants, the wilderness of the jungle and teach them about our culture. Both of us are from the indigenous Karen Hilltribe and are more than happy to give you insights into our traditions (of course you can also learn about Thai culture while staying with us ;)). We both speak English and love to meet people from around the world. We are looking for 1 people to help us promoting our sanctuary and help for about 2-3h a day. Volunteers with marketing, social media, IT and web design skills are highly and Edit some information on the website welcomed. In return we offer you free accommodation in one of our new air-conditioned dorms with ensuite bathroom, free wifi and safety box, free coffee and tea as well as discounts on tours for attractions in and around Chiang Mai and the rest of Thailand.

We would love to get some help in marketing, social media, IT, web design. Help us promoting our elephant sanctuary and getting new customers. You are also welcome to follow me on my tours, where we take photos of the visitors and share them later on social media.
Air-conditioned single bed dorm with ensuite bathroom, individual reading lamp and free wifi, safety box available as well.
Our house is centrally located just 2 minutes walk from the old city of Chiang Mai, just off the famous Saturday walking street. In your free time you can explore the city, go hiking, take a refreshing shower in some waterfalls close to the city or just sit back and relax in our communal area or in one of the many cosy cafes and coffee shops close by. You can reach everything on foot but if needed we can help you out with our motorbike. We are very social and often have dinner with our staff and volunteers...you will be able to try Karen jungle food as well ;)
