Andaman Discoveries

Local/Foreign Owned Social Enterprise

Andaman Discoveries started as North Andaman Tsunami Relief - after completing many projects to help coastal communities recover from the 2004 tsunami, they decided to continue their work as a social enterprise helping communities develop sustainable tourism projects. Only a few hours away from the touristy areas of Phuket, Koh Samui, and Khao Lak, they now connect travelers to the friendly communities of the north Andaman region. They invite you to experience their traditional way of life and diverse eco-systems in an authentic and non-intrusive way. Volunteer, join a homestay tour, experience authentic ecotourism and enjoy the real Thailand!
