Is your rent too high?

Do the maths and work it out yourself

Maybe you're being overcharged for your property rental and you can now prevent it from happening again in the future.......or maybe you have an absolute steal of a deal.


Avoiding real estate scammers in Bangkok

The challenge is knowing what kind of agent to look for

There is no licensing for real estate agents in Thailand. Saying you are an agent in any other country if you're not licensed is a criminal offence. In Thailand? Anyone can "claim" to be an agent. It doesn't mean they are.


Teacher mistakes

Avoid falling into any of these teacher traps

Ajarn has put together a list of the most common mistakes that teachers make in Thailand - both new arrivals and those who have been here a while.


The ajarn.com guide to renting a house

When you've had quite enough of apartment living.

For those getting tired of apartment life and the world and its uncle knowing your business - then perhaps renting a house could be the answer. It's not going to be the easiest thing you've ever done - but nothing is impossible.


Real estate since the coup

Property developers are putting their trust in the new regime.

Surely if there was a sense of fear or worry that the current regime may have a negative impact on the Thai economy, then real estate projects would be halted or at least slowed down


The hidden gardens of Bangkok

You'd be surprised how much green there is out there

Finding peaceful, open spaces outside of Bangkok is easy enough, but tranquility within the central areas of the city is near to impossible, unless of course, you know where to look.


Bangkok's cheap apartments

Are budget studios a good option?

Not only is Bangkok renowned for having the cheapest taxi fares on the planet, but it's perhaps also one of the least expensive capitals in the world for renting centrally located accommodation. So just how much bang do you get for your Baht in 2014?


What's in a name?

'Everything' say property developers

All around us these days, products and services are branded with care and precision. This is not only done to draw attention, but also to stimulate precise feelings within consumers for whatever product or service is being hawked. It's been proven time and time again that clever branding really does produce positive results in businesses.


An overview of teaching in Thailand

I thought this might be of benefit to new ajarn readers in particular

I was asked to fill in a questionnaire by my old university on the topic of teaching English in Thailand. Although it was intended to encourage applicants to take a Thai study program in Germany, the information might be useful for those teachers thinking of coming to work here in Thailand.


Welcome to Bang Sue

Life on the outskirts of Bangkok

“You live where??” I usually receive looks of concern from my students when I tell them that I live in the neighborhood of Bang Sue, about an hour away from our school. From my friends, I receive childish giggles. Yes, I get it. Ha Ha. Many people wonder why I would live so far away from my job and my friends.
