Food For 7 – 10 Weeks or So
Remember that 7 weeks will pass before you get paid your first salary. Fortunately Thailand is a very cheap place to live. We have estimated that you will need around 3000 THB a week for the first weeks before you get paid. You may actually need more or less than this, depending on how well you can budget your cash.
Many teachers see Thailand’s first few months as a holiday and this can be a temptation to travel and spend more money on partying, drinking, etc. We ask you to take into account that you will need a lot more cash if you want to drink a lot or go on trips to islands for parties.
Travel or Medical Insurance
We advise you to apply for travel insurance from the UK before you leave. If you are from the UK or Europe we recommend Long Stay Travel Insurance.
