    Hello there!

    Thanks for dropping by my Workaway Host profile. You can call me, Kash. I'm 38yo, currently living and working in Langkawi for about almost 10 years now.

    What do I do? Well, I'm a freelance Graphic Designer, and I'm also running a small guesthouse and travel & tour business here, and we do more for online customers around the globe.

    Based in beautiful Langkawi, we also provide holiday and adventure packages to other islands like Koh Lipe in Thailand and Bali & Lombok, Indonesia. More offerings from other island destinations are in the works.

    We are looking for a young energetic Couple, or 1- Solo volunteer, non-smoker/drinker, housemate/guests friendly, all rounder team worker with minimum 2-4 weeks volunteering stay at a time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a volunteer/helper, you might gonna do your own stuff, with just helping me 4-5 days a week, 5 hrs a day, you are free to go and do what ever you want in the island. You can walk and swim at beach, sight-seeing at Cenang beach area (it's a tourist street area by the beach close to my place), go to mall or just hangout at Starbucks reading books.

    Well, there's a lot more to do here and discover about Langkawi. Definitely we shall plan while you here but most of our trip / tour with our guests are fun and worth to join e.g. Sunset Dinner Cruise, Jetski Island Hopping, Flying Fox / Zip-line & Kayak Adventure! - It's like a working and having fun together at one time! :)
