Beware of several websites that are copying job ads ('stealing' is actually the correct word) from Ajarn dot com. We only post job ads that are sent DIRECTLY to us. An employer will sometimes ask us to make changes to a job description but those changes will NOT be made by the website copying the ad. Trust the info, trust Ajarn! View all the current teaching positions on the Ajarn jobs page.

— What's Chantaburi (Eastern Thailand) like for teachers?

What's Chantaburi (Eastern Thailand) like for teachers?

Chantaburi is of my favourite provinces in the whole of Thailand. It's always clean and tidy and the town is a place where you feel the locals have a great sense of pride. It would certainly make a wonderful place to live. But is it a wonderful place to teach?
