My husband and I have been esl teachers in the public school system in Japan for 6 years and we need a break from Japan.
I was wondering where people are, why they are there and if they work through public, private or business.....
I am moreso interested in hearing from people NOT in Bangkok as I have no interest in living there Sorry... as well as couples if there are any.
We have lived briefly in Thailand on a 'vacation' for 3 months. We stayed in Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Pattaya. (yes yes Pattaya, which we actually really liked but not for the reasons your thinking)
Looking at making a move to Thailand next school year so am sourcing where may be best to go.
Thanks for any and all
We're in Ratchaburi; going on 10 years. Why? It's a great place (we're in a small Amphur [Ban Pong]) and it's where I first came for work. It's slightly west of the center of Thailand and that makes it easy to go the 4 main points of the compass and all points between.

and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these
will continue till they are resisted with either
words or blows, or with both.

i live in Bangkok so i'll be quiet and not say so, as per the OP's request.
Imodium can't stop me.
kingdomcome - no BEd or Masters... Makes it damned near impossible to get anything there.
And I have friends who are there that say it is not a walk in the park. Dont really want to leave a stressful country to go to another. It IS an option but,..... Would prefer TH. That, and I like my beer
op, i'm in korea but i'm sure you don't wanna hear about it.

I live in Rangsit which is a sunburb of Bangkok. I live here as I have a lot of friends in the area, enjoy the pace of life and am close enough to Bangkok when I want it. I also enjoy cycling and the countryside in my area makes for a pleasant ride. oh, I also rent a nice big house for 7k. no shoebox apartment for me!
I live in Samut Prakarn, another suburb of Bangkok. The advantages of living in the Samut Prakarn, Pak Naam, Samrong part of the city are.....er.....erm.......no it's gone.
It's an area with the dirtiest pedestrian bridges, the saddest, most neglected flower displays, the lowest council budgets, the greyest, tattiest buildings, the most desperate soi dogs, the biggest litter problem, the seediest hotels, the darkest, skankiest karoake bars and massage parlours, the worst drivers and the most depressing shops.
I'll discuss its bad points in another post.
The worst job in Thailand must be the man who has to sit down with a blue marker pen and mark a number two on the two-baht coins to stop people thinking they are one-baht coins.
