Trip overview

Our Teach in Thailand trip combines both passions of teaching and travel into one. You’ll gain an internationally-recognised accreditation and be presented with the unique opportunity to have your own classroom of students as you embark on an unforgettable adventure to teach English abroad. Home to over 1400 islands, soak up the sunshine by island hopping, relaxing on the beautiful tropical beaches fringed with palms galore, or experiencing the famed full moon parties. 

We offer the complete package for those wanting to teach English overseas and, best of all, we have partnered with exclusive local teaching organisations who can offer you an optional paid teaching placement upon completion of your TESOL course. You’ll be able to earn a local income in Thailand, or you can take your new accreditation with you to almost anywhere else in the world. Our team will help you with all the essentials you need to kickstart your journey to becoming an English teacher overseas, from visa assistance to bank account set up, cultural activities and excursions, local support and so much more.

Immerse yourself in a whole new culture, create lifelong connections and tick off incredible bucket list spots in between.

Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.


Trip details

Our Teach in Thailand trip is designed to get you travelling, living and teaching English overseas as smoothly as possible. We’re here to help you from the very beginning, offering step-by-step guidance as you embark on a path to work and travel as an English teacher abroad. We provide an internationally-recognised TESOL course, arrange local cultural experiences and provide you with the optional opportunity to work as a paid English teacher upon completion of your course. 

Arrive in Thailand with the reassurance that you will be one step ahead of every other traveller or teacher in search of international experience in Asia. Once you’ve completed your TESOL in Chiang Mai, you’re free to take it with you to many other countries in the world and embark on exciting teaching projects abroad. Or you can choose to stay for longer in Thailand and earn a local income with an optional teaching placement in various schools around the country. We’ll plan and organise all the surrounding logistics, our 24/7 emergency support team is always on standby, and our in-country partner will guide you throughout the entire journey and answer any questions that may arise.

Spend your time teaching in Thailand, immersing yourself in the culture, exploring the breathtaking landscapes and charm of this tropical destination and leave the logistical stuff to us. We’re here to save you time, money, stress and even the risk of returning home early! Embrace a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel, live and teach in Thailand and start making magic happen in the classroom of your dreams.

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that you have the freedom to create your own adventure. But, for a rough idea, this is how most travellers spend their first few days: 

Week 1-4

Once you’ve touched down at Chiang Mai Airport, your private transfer will take you into Chiang Mai for your initial in-country orientation, introducing you to Thailand and other teachers.

If you’re completing the TESOL training course in-country, you’ll be introduced to your TESOL classmates and trainers and taken to Chiang Mai, where you’ll prepare to begin your 4 weeks of training before your optional teaching contract starts! You’ll get to experience the cultural activities planned, such as joining a Muay Thai class, visiting a 700-year-old Buddhist tunnel temple and exploring a mountain temple and rice field.

Most people are presented with a local teaching contract before they’ve even finished the TESOL course, in the unlikely chance you haven't received yours, our local partner won’t stop until you’ve got one.

Trip location

Arrive in Chiang Mai so that you can start your orientation and in-country TESOL course. After that, you could find yourself teaching in one of the placements our in-country teaching partners have dotted around Thailand.
