6 Incredible Places to Visit when Teaching in Thailand

So you are heading off to the land of smiles and you would like to make the most of the experience? When working in Thailand you will get a lot of free time and we have put together a run down of amazing places you should visit in the country. Popular destinations include Chiang Mai, Ching Rai and Bangkok but there are also so many other areas of the country you should consider too. 


1. Bangkok 

A sprawling metroposis with buildings, noise, people, temples, huge modern shopping centres and also hundreds of cafe, bars and food outlets. Stay around the Koh San Road area - this is a backpacker haven. 


2. Koh Phangan

The full moon party in Koh Phangan happens once a month and its important you arrive a few days earlier as accommodation get booked up quick. 


3. Chiang Mai 

A relatively quiet city compared to Bangkok and its also a great place to visit. In Chiang Mai check out the Elephant Nature Park where rescued elephants roam free in a wild environment.


4. Phi Phi 

The island of Koh Phi Phi is still one of the most popular gap year destinations in Thailand but expect to pay a lot for accommodation as since the film the Beach it's become really touristy. 


5. Koh Chang 

Located a few hours from Bangkok, this large island has beautiful beaches, a laid back atmosphere and is less crazy than some of the other islands in terms of nightlife


6. Phuket 

Quite touristy with huge resorts but there are ways to escape the crowds and see stunning places like Railey beach
