Looking for How to Teach English in Thailand, Fast & Easy?
People who have taught in Thailand have a love affair with it. Some might call it an obsession. Sometimes teachers leave Thailand, but Thailand never leaves their heart. And when they do leave Thailand, a part of them gets left behind.
But that’s okay, because they ALWAYS come back!
Ever seen a movie in 4-D? 4-DX? 6-D? Probably not, because Thailand is one of the only countries in the world that has these technologies. Yet, you can get food at a restaurant at ANY hour for $1.
Hawaiian style beaches and islands, yet affordable and with great-paying jobs.
Have you ever dreamed of traveling to a place with palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze, laying in a hammock, cocktail in your hand, and sun-drenched white-sand beaches running into pools of aquamarine and emerald?
Why travel to one when you can LIVE in one!
3. People in Thailand
When it comes to life, Thais get IT! Life should be enjoyed and celebrated. Thais have taken this to the extreme. It’s very rare (unless you are in the tourist areas) to find a Thai person who is in a hurry, stressed-out, worried, frowning, etc. They enjoy the MOMENT and prefer not to judge people and their actions.
Respect! Teaching English in Thailand will change the way you think of the word ‘respect’. Thais are about respect and politeness. Even the poorest amongst the Thais embody this ethic. Sometimes you feel like you’re in a contest to see who can out-respect or out-polite the other.
Watch out, there’s a chance you’ll never pay for food or alcohol again. Thais are super friendly and love to share food and drink with you. You’ll have to learn how to avoid the free-whiskey-every-night gambit that plays out nightly in Thailand. You’ve been warned!
Speaks for itself. But, if tropical beaches and warm breezes aren’t your thing, feel free to head to Chiang Mai and other northern provinces where the locals sometimes dress like they’re going to grab their skis and hit the slopes.
If you haven’t tried Thai food, you are in an extreme minority. It’s the 2nd most popular food in the world after Italian. Then again, you’ve probably paid $10+ for a dish you can get for $1 here in Thailand. After a hard day of teaching English, it’s nice to know you can eat out without breaking the bank!
If McDonald’s, KFC, Subway, & Pizza Hut are your thing, you’re in luck. They are EVERYWHERE in Thailand. And they all deliver! McDonald’s delivers 24 hours a day. Convenience!
The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio? You’ve seen it. If you haven’t, you should. It was filmed at Maya Bay in Koh Phi Phi, Thailand; a short boat ride from Phuket.
Hangover 2. All of those shots were taken at beaches in Thailand.
From Phuket to Koh Samui to beaches and islands even more beautiful and less developed, Thailand is the tropical paradise for you.
