— What do you think?

What do you think?

Is the writing on the wall for 'tourist teachers'? Is it possible to teach here for more than three years without a degree? Will the new visa rules force many schools to take a long, hard look at their recruitment process? These are just a few points up for debate in the ajarn Postbox. Why not have your say?


— Lee Craker - the man behind the lens

Lee Craker - the man behind the lens

American photographer, Lee Craker, has a portfolio of some of the best Thailand images I've ever seen. When I discovered he ran his own photography workshops in Nakhon Nayok and recently covered the exodus of Cambodian migrant workers, I knew this was a guy we needed to get into the ajarn hot seat. Thankfully he accepted my invitation.  


— I don't go to tailor shops anymore

I don't go to tailor shops anymore

I don't go to see a movies at the theater, I never go on expat discussion forums and I certainly never buy fruit from a supermarket. Mickey Sheehan contemplates the ways his Bangkok lifestyle has changed.


— Another great Bangkok escape

Another great Bangkok escape

I've long been a fan of Khao Takiab, a quiet beach resort just a few kilometres from the popular town of Hua Hin. You won't find noisy bars and neon lights. It'll be just you, a handful of weekend daytrippers, the rolling waves and a few cheeky monkeys. I'm glad that Ajarn blogger Sam Thompson has joined the fan club. 



— Varee Chiang Mai catches World Cup fever

Varee Chiang Mai catches World Cup fever

Varee School in Chiang Mai never does things by halves and for the World Cup in Brazil, they really pushed the boat out.  Students represented countries and took part in a mock opening ceremony. There were matches played between teachers and students. It looks like a great time was had by all. Enjoy the photos.


— "Too easy to just drift from day to day"

"Too easy to just drift from day to day"

Damien is our latest great escapee. He left Thailand recently after three years teaching in Thai schools. He simply felt that the time was right to give China a go.


— Biking the Bolaven Plateau

Biking the Bolaven Plateau

Stuck for travel ideas near Thailand? But still have a sense of adventure? William Putnam bought a cheap motorcycle and travelled around Southern Laos for two weeks. He describes it as 'one of the most rewarding experiences ever'
