Abstract : This study investigates the attitudes of Thai hosts towards Foreign volunteer tourists. Volunteer tourism programs offered by two host organizations in Thailand: The Elephant World in Kanchanaburi province, and the Little Friendly Farm Project in Rajchaburi province were selected as case studies. An interpretive paradigm utilizing qualitative data collection methods (semi-structure interviews and participant observations) was employed. The informants included 9 hosts at the Elephant World, and 4 hosts at the Little Friendly Farm Project, all of which were selected by purposive sampling and snowball sampling. The analysis of the data showed that all of the respondents portray favorable attitudes towards volunteer tourists. Their attitudes were mainly based on two key factors: the volunteer tourists' conduct and performance, and the benefits gained from the volunteer tourists. Index Terms- volunteer tourism, attitudes, Thai hosts, foreign volunteer tourists
