Teach ESL in Thailand!
Thailand – A Gem of Asia Southeast Asia is a gem of the world that millions travel to per year. It’s there that they can experience the enchantment of countries steeped in ancient religions and colorful traditions. For centuries, Thailand’s geographic position has helped attribute to its modern identity, which, many will find, comes from its rich history and culture.
The 50th largest country (right up there with France) in the world, Thailand offers travelers and transplants alike with a wide variety of opportunities and experiences based upon region. From Southern Thailand – with its beautiful beaches and warm climate – to Northern Thailand – with its free, lush forests and regal mountains – there is something to see and do for every individual, no matter their interests.
All of these are reasons why many are choosing Thailand as their destination country for teaching English as a second language.
A Plethora of Attractions From Bangkok to Phuket, there are hundreds of attractions for you to visit by yourself or with friends you make through your teach abroad program. Laden with beautiful, intricate temples, you will navigate through the magic of Thailand all while learning about their traditions and religion. The Chiang Rhai White Temple is a striking Buddhist temple with an entirely white exterior, complete with a unique sculpture garden. Khao Yai National Park is a sanctuary for plants and animals and any nature lover where you can see Asian elephants and many different species of monkeys in their natural habitats. The Grand Palace in Bangkok is ornate and holds an emerald Buddha in its grand hall. The palace is over two hundred years old and glows, golden and ethereal in the evenings.
These are just a few among many other amazing attractions you could visit and make memories at while traveling, living, and teaching in Thailand.
A Rich, Colorful Culture
In addition to its many attractions and beautiful landscapes, Thailand is well-known for its annual festivals, such as Songkran. Every April 13th, Songkran occurs, sending thousands into the streets to celebrate the gift of water with city-wide water-gun and water-balloon fights, parades, and traditional dancing in the streets. Loi Krathong is another celebration, but it occurs almost exclusively at night, due to its need for lights and flame. Locals will create their own colorful boats, with a wax candle at its center, and set it afloat in the Mekong Rive, creating an unearthly beautiful scene of water, light, and reflection.
Economical Living For many teachers, your time abroad is one in which you hope to explore as much as you can. This goal may be obtained by making and saving as much money as possible, so that during your free time, you may adventure into the world around you. Living and teaching ESL in Thailand helps you save as much money as possible by being an incredibly inexpensive place to live. And while this cost will vary depending on where you apply or are placed (urban areas may be more expensive than rural areas), the overall average cost of groceries, going out, rent, and utilities is strikingly lower than in the United States or the U.K. Rent itself is over 60% lower in Thailand than it is in the United States.
For example, a modern, updated two-bedroom, two-bath apartment in downtown Bangkok costs around 40,000 Thai Bacht, or $1,100 US Dollars. The cost of food is cheap, as well, with an average grocery list costing you no more than $30 to $40 (even a grande Starbucks cappuccino costs under $3). For many teachers, they spend little on transportation, as well. Often they are able to take public transportation to and from their school, which costs very little, some are even able to walk, which more than costing absolutely nothing, allows them to become all the more familiar with their new home country and its people.
