How much money should I bring with me?
This differs from person to person but I’m always inclined to say bring as much as you can. Even though you’ll probably find a teaching job within a matter of weeks (even days), you could find yourself working a month until your first pay packet. Then there is the cost of your hotel or apartment (don’t forget apartments will want a one or two month deposit up front)
In my view, you certainly need enough money to tide you over for a period of five weeks or so. And with the apartment deposit, I wouldn’t like to do all that on less than about 150,000 baht.
