teachers salary & quality of life

Is it worth moving out of Bangkok (teachers salary & quality of life)

People often cite the lower cost of living, better quality of life and a more Thai-style existence as reasons to be based outside the capital.

In general you find the best wages in Thailand if you’re based in Bangkok. There are obviously jobs outside the capital which pay well but it’s rare to see.

I’m happy in Bangkok but people cite the lower cost of living, better quality of life and a more Thai-style existence as reasons to be based outside the capital.

I love visiting new towns and cities in Thailand. Bangkok can get a bit too full on and lacks the beauty of many other regions in Thailand. However, it’s difficult to argue that Bangkok isn’t the place to be if you’re looking to make decent money. The big question is whether it’s worth living outside Bangkok despite getting a lower salary.

What are the different salaries offered?

I’ve done a little research through the jobs offered here on Ajarn.com and come up with some example salaries in different regions in Thailand. Whilst this isn’t an exact science it should give a good guide of  potential earnings.

Bangkok:

Government school native speaker (degree holder)– 38,000 baht per month

Government school non-native speaker (degree holder)  20,000 baht per month

Bilingual kindergarten job (degree plus CELTA) – 50,000 baht per month

International School (home country qualified native speakers) 100,000 baht per month

Part Time teaching – 400 baht per hour

Krabi:

Language Centre (degree holder + TEFL) – 36,000 baht per month

Pattaya:

International School (degree in Education from UK, USA, Canada, Australia + 1 year experience) 50,000 baht per month

Government School native speaker – 35,000 baht per month

Chiang Mai:

International School ( Education Degree + PGCE) 55,000 baht per month

Government School native speaker – 30,000 baht per month

Phuket:

Government School – Filipino teacher – 15,000 baht per month

Qualified History / Maths teacher – 30,000 baht per month

Part time teaching – 300 baht per hour.

As you can see Bangkok does have jobs which pay on average slightly higher than other regions in Thailand. I’m not saying that there aren’t good paying jobs outside Bangkok but the capital is the place to be if you want to easily find a higher salary, especially at the top end jobs. When you look at government school jobs there isn’t much in it.
