In this video, I take you behind the scenes of an expat living and working in Bangkok, Thailand. My job is teaching English to Thai’s. This is a look at the lifestyle of a teacher who is employed full-time. I also talk about the stress involved in teaching in Thailand. Teaching English can be fun, and it is a rewarding career, but expats need to understand that teaching in Thailand is a real job. It requires most of your time, and generally speaking, teaching pays a low salary in the beginning. I love living and working in Bangkok. It is a lively city, with many things to do. However, because it is a full time job, don’t think you will have a lot of free time to travel, or money to travel with. Teaching abroad will make you a better person, but you may have to sacrifice a little of your life to be that person.

  1. You are fortunate to work and live in paradise but I’m sure it’s rough being at work and knowing you are just hours away from places like Krabi, Keep Doing More Life 😎✌🏼

  2. I think it all depends on your previous experience. For me living and working in the US was depressing. It was a struggle I always felt like I was surrounded by privileged people who had so much more than me. Living and working in Thailand 🇹🇭 has been incredible for me. I get a respect I’ve never had before, my pay is really great (bachelor’s degree needed) , my condo is $240/month, I travel almost every weekend, and I’m still able to save more than I ever could in the states.

    If you have a bachelor’s degree you’re a hot commodity here. I got 4 job offers the my first month in Thailand and I had 0 teaching experience. But it is a HUGE adjustment as far as culture goes in the work place. You have to adapt quickly and know that the Thais are just like you the only difference is usually miscommunication because they likely have no idea what you’re saying even if they act like they do lol
