It's a town and a province bordered by Lopburi, Suphanburi and Saraburi. It's also not that far from Bangkok. Are many foreign teachers enticed by its charms?

It's a town packed with ancient temples and history and only an hour or so from Bangkok - but what are the pickings like for an English teacher?

Some would say that this small town is in the perfect location - halfway between Bangkok and Pattaya. There are also plenty of teaching jobs on offer if you can go without your Western food fix.

Smack in the middle of North East Thailand - say hello to Chaiyaphum. Any opportunities there for an English teacher?

Ah, at last. Quite possibly my favourite province in the whole of Thailand. It's certainly a wonderful place to live. But is it a wonderful place to teach?

What's going on in one of Thailand's fastest growing cities? The city where I think most teachers would love to work if only the salaries were better.

A delightful, laid-back city in Northern Thailand that's famous for its white temple (Wat Rong Khun) A place known for its good value accommodation and great local food. Any teaching jobs?

One of the largest and busiest cities in Southern Thailand. But is it a hotbed of TEFL jobs?

Undoubtedly one of the nicest beach resort towns in Thailand but many say it's gone very touristy these days. Is Hua Hin a place for a teacher to settle and find work?

Plenty of war cemeteries, museums, bridges and other tourist attractions - but is there any work for a teacher?

I once heard Khon Kaen described as Thailand's most livable city. But would an English teacher survive there?

There's no doubt that the paradise island of Koh Samui is a great place to be a tourist. But is it a great place to be an English teacher?

Temples, monkeys and more monkeys are Lopburi's main draws but as an English teacher looking for a living wage, will you be just monkeying around?

The Lonely Planet guide describes Mukdahan as 'not an exciting place'. Sounds like we could be in trouble here. Is there any hope for a TEFLer?

Home to the biggest chedi in Thailand, this charming and busy little town is within easy reach of Bangkok. Are many English teachers making Nakhon Pathom their home?

Petchburi Province itself includes the popular resorts of Hua Hin and Chaam. It sounds like a great place to be a teacher - but what's the reality?

Get away from the tourists as much or as little as you like. Enjoy great Thai food and beautiful scenery along with an abundance of available work. Sounds like a great place for teachers.

Another town and province a very long way from Bangkok but starting to get a reputation as a must-see part of Southern Thailand. It's quite a fertile hunting ground for teachers as well by the sound of it.

To the locals and the regulars, it's known as P-Lok. It's got plenty of cultural attractions and a reasonable cost of living. But what about TEFL vacancies?

Is Phuket one of those dream locations that promises so much for an English teacher and yet delivers so little? Is it a case of hotel teaching and little else?

Waiting for this guide to be completed.
Just 40 kilometres north of Bangkok, Rangsit can be rich pickings for an English teacher looking for a good choice of schools without being too far from the bright lights of the capital.

A small, sparsely populated town that thrives as a border run centre thanks to its close proximity to Myanmar. OK, visa runs might be convenient but what else does it offer an English teacher?

We've waited a long time to get some feedback on Ratchaburi (the home of the clay-fired earthenware jar) which is surprising because it's got a booming TEFL industry. Hasn't it?

If you drive several hours south from Bangkok - and can avoid the temptations of Pattaya on the way - you'll eventually end up at the beaches and industrial estates of Rayong. But are there any schools for teachers?

Apparently the food is amazing, the scenery is breathtaking and Roi Et has some of the friendliest Thai people you could wish to meet. If it's got plenty of teaching jobs, then this could be one heck of a place to be.

I don't think I've ever met a teacher who has taught in Sakhon Nakhon. It wouldn't be at the top of many people's dream destination list but come on guys! It's in North East Thailand. It's probably great!

Be careful you don't get hit by a motorcycle or fall down a big hole in the footpath. Samut Prakarn really is the pits! But actually there are plenty of schools and teaching jobs in the area.

It's usually a settlement you drive quickly through on your way from Bangkok to Hua Hin, but believe it or not foreigners do actually teach there. But could it be Thailand's most boring province?

It's the 'fish sauce town' that you pass through on the drive down from Bangkok to Pattaya. Does somewhere between the devil and the deep blue sea appeal to teachers though?

One wonders what Surin would do without its annual elephant festival. It sounds like a place that puts the L into laid-back. But it does have foreign teachers and plenty of expat retirees apparently.

It's been described as 'the perfect small town'. What a pity it rains for 8-9 months of the year. So if you're thinking of living and working here, probably best pack your raincoat.
