Thailand teaching stuff - October 2015

A selection of blog links that will be of interest to teachers in Thailand

Here's another selection of interesting teacher-related blogs and articles that have popped up on the internet over the last few months or so. I hope you find something of interest.


Neighborhood watch

How do Bangkok neighborhoods differ?

I've been thinking about the five different neighborhoods I have lived in during my twenty-odd years in Bangkok. Which ones did I enjoy? Were there any neighborhoods that I particularly hated? What were the advantages and disadvantages of each community that I spent time in? Perhaps it would be interesting to draw some comparisons.


Property possiblities on the BTS Sukhumwit extension

Only a few more months to go until the long-awaited Sukhumwit extension

I'm sure if you live in Bangkok it would not have escaped your notice that the popular BTS system is receiving a long overdue extension in the Eastern part of the city center.


Low cost living in the Sukhumwit area

Where are the good deals in this popular area?

Many expats of all nationalities from Japanese to German, from Indian to Italian, and of course all those in between, flock to Sukhumvit and make it the most popular expat ‘district’ of Bangkok.


The skytrain to nowhere

I've stumbled upon one of Bangkok's darkest secrets

Are you like me, one of those weary sky-train passengers, looking at those gleaming new BTS stations and wondering simply, when?


Apartment-hunting

Looking for digs and the hell of the lower Sukhumwit

I'd been all over the internet in an attempt to compile a list of suitable locations. Some websites I even got redirected to three times. It's amazing how difficult it is to locate independent websites amid the jungle of real estate portals and listings of serviced apartments way over my budget. It's even more difficult to find somewhere that will rent for just a month.
