With its breathtaking scenery, tranquil society and fascinating culture, it’s no surprise that Thailand has long been one of the most popular places to teach English- ranging from the lively bustle of Bangkok to the quieter cities such as Chang Mai. From floating markets, incredible wildlife, stunning Buddhist temples and breathtaking beaches of Phuket and Koh Samui; this country has something to offer everyone.

Despite the political problems of 2010, Thailand’s ESL market continues to grow as the country is developing faster than ever and is keen to equip young people with English language skills. Generally speaking, Thailand is perhaps one of the easier places to live and teach given the laidback nature of the Thai people, the superb food and the relatively cheap price of accommodation and everyday goods. If you make the move to teach in Thailand, you can look forward to having one of the most comfortable lifestyles on earth!
