Alright! You’ve decided to teach English in Thailand. Now what? Job hunting in Thailand requires getting well-informed, so go to the library and get a bunch of books on Thailand. Then go online and start searching for jobs. People have been teaching ESL in Thailand for a while now and you will not have any trouble searching out loads of opportunities and reviews as well as expert advice. It can be a bit overwhelming, but simply put in some time and all the BS will start to fade away. Soon you’ll be able to scan the whole country for job openings on a daily basis from the remote comfort of basically wherever you want to be.
Most people who came to teach English in Thailand came here for the same reason: to find their small piece of paradise; to stumble on a remote sandy beach with that sunny non-contrast of powder white sand and crystal turquoise water, to follow a jungle path up to a tree house at the edge of a jungle lake where there are elephants swimming, or to doze off in a hammock in the shade with a beverage and some friends on your own private island. People find these things in Thailand.
