If you are interested in teaching in Thailand, I can give you numberous recomendations. I am loving it here. The people are great, I am safe, the culture is spectacular and the food is amazing. I am in a city near the south west coast and I have easy access to the beaches. When living in Thaialnad , it is wise to be near water.
It is so so so inexpensive to live here so once you get th e flight cost out of the way, the rest is beans and weiners. Seriously...an apartment is only $100 , a great meal is 75 cents, a bike costs $35 to get around the city. But motorbike taxis are the way to go for 25 cents.
