Gap year in Thailand?

I'm a high school senior who is on the normal track to going to college next year. However, I've always had it in the back of my head to take a gap year, to go somewhere new and gain experiences that I wouldn't gain from college. I want to go to Thailand; its always been a very attractive place to me... show more I'm a high school senior who is on the normal track to going to college next year. However, I've always had it in the back of my head to take a gap year, to go somewhere new and gain experiences that I wouldn't gain from college. I want to go to Thailand; its always been a very attractive place to me because of its vibrant culture, amazing rock climbing, and beautiful geography. What should I do? Work for a nonprofit, get a job over there, or just travel? I'm getting a job this summer to accrue some money, and my parents would help me out, but I'd like to do something of purpose over there.
