Interesting Thailand stuff - October 2016

A selection of hand-picked Thailand blogs and articles

Here's some of the more interesting Thailand-related stuff that I've found on the internet over the past three months. Hopefully there's something for everyone.

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.

Interesting Thailand stuff - June 2016

Another selection of interesting blog and article links

The rainy season is almost upon us. Why not kick back and enjoy some of the best Thailand-related articles that I've found on the internet over the past several months.

More than just money

Consider the 'perks' of a teaching job as well

I have come to realize that there are many other important factors that you should consider when applying for teaching jobs, some of which are just as important as the salary.

A rewarding visa run

How to get a double-entry tourist visa in Savannakhet, Laos

I won't claim to be any kind of expert on the matter, but from everything I've heard from the many people and agencies I've talked to, Laos is the only country you can easily (relatively and without flying) get to from Bangkok that will grant you a double entry tourist visa.

Cultivating novelty

Making sure the novelty of living in Asia doesn't wear off

Sometimes I think about why I'm here. Why I left Thailand. Why I left America in the first place. The answers to those questions probably aren't all that different from lots of other foreign teachers here in this part of the world.

Let's wait and see what happens


It is very interesting to read all the gossip and drama surrounding the new visa rules. I think 'apparently' is the correct word to use during this debate because I think people need to look at this situation realistically.

How will the visa rule changes affect teachers?


I'm sure that many of you will have been reading over the past few weeks that there are some major changes on the way regarding visa rules and immigration laws in Thailand.

Byeland to Thailand


I've been working at a government college for the last 5 months. While my school has kept good on the salary and pay me on time every month, the paperwork wasn't delivered on time as promised and I have had to do costly visa runs.
