Ten Reasons Why the Hottest Place For International Teachers is Thailand

Recommended Posts

If you are thinking about teaching abroad, the first thing you have to consider is where you want to be an educator. Just like in real estate, it all comes down to “location, location, location.”

For some people, it's all about where they can make the most money. For others, though, it's about where they can have the most fun and enjoy themselves. If you are in the latter group, then by far the hottest place to teach in is Thailand, where you will be living in paradise and having the time of your life.

Here's some of the main reasons that so many teachers choose Thailand when they are ready to become international educators.

1.    While the salaries are not as high as in South Korea or Saudi Arabia, the cost of living is very low, and you'll be able to live a very good life on what you'll be making.

2.    There are many, many schools in Thailand looking for international educators, so you'll have your pick of the type of school where you want to teach.

3.    You'll be living in one of the most beautiful countries on earth. Nearly every day is gorgeous. And the beaches will blow your mind.

4.    It's easy to travel to interesting parts of the country and neighboring countries so you can build up a wealth of cultural experiences.

5.    There is a rich social scene. You'll easily be able to meet potential friends – and more.

6.    Speaking of which, if you are part of the queer community, the LGBTQ scene is a deep part of the culture. Thais even believe in a third gender, so if you don't present in a gender-conforming way, you'll be accepted.

7.    It's easy to travel to neighboring countries during your time off.

8.    If you are into partying and having fun, there is a healthy expat scene in all of the major cities.

9.    You'll come back home with amazing stories!

10. By being part of a culture that is very different from the West, you'll gain a wealth of cultural understanding that will serve you well when teaching in other countries.
