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.


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.


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

John

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?

Ajarn.com

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

Brenda

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.


Thailand teaching stuff - May 2014

Another picnic basket of tasty blog links

Hi everyone, it's Peter Clarke again, with a selection of my favourite internet blogs and articles that I hope will appeal to teachers in Thailand. Well, actually you don't need to be a teacher, I think anyone who has an interest in all things Thailand will enjoy them.


Back to reality

The new school term starts - and not without problems

Much of this blog may sound negative (and to some extent, it is), but in all honestly, it's par for the course. I love Thailand, and generally speaking, I love teaching in my Thai school. Even so, there are little things that crop up all of the time, and you just have to take them in your stride.
