Teach in the wonderful 'Land of Smiles' otherwise known as Thailand.
Adorned with temples and jaw-dropping scenery, it's no wonder Thailand is one of the most popular destinations among budding TEFL teachers. Plant yourself in what is known as the 'Rose of the North' (Chiang Mai), and explore what Thailand has to offer.
Thailand plays host to many festivals including Songkran (a big water fight symbolizing the ritual bathing of Buddha, and Thai New Year), Yi Peng (Thai Lantern Festival) and so much more.
When you’re not teaching, you’re going to have the Thai-m of your life in Chiang Mai!
Stay in a beautiful hotel in Thailand while completing your 2-week in-person TEFL training. This hotel is framed by beautiful greenery and towering plants, a serene blue swimming pool, social areas, and more! The best part is this lush stay is included in the cost of your Thai internship. Before you even start teaching, you’re treated like royalty.
Attend many Thai festivals
Experience Thai culture for yourself. Thailand is adorned with many religious and cultural festivals, so make sure to attend one to really embrace Thai culture.
Here are our top five Thai festivals to attend during your time teaching in Chiang Mia:
- Chiang Mai Flower Festival (February) -If you choose to extend your stay in Thailand, specifically in Chiang Mai, you can experience this festival in full bloom. In February, Chiang Mai explodes with beautiful blossoms along with a big floral parade. Now wonder Chiang Mai is known as the “Rose of the North.
- Songkran - Water Festival - Thai New Year (April) - Who doesn’t love a big water fight to cool down? Stay in Thailand longer and experience this country wide water fight to mark one of the most significant Buddhist holidays in Thailand!
- Bang Fai Phaya - Naga Fireballs Festival (October) - By October you’ll have completed your TEFL training, are now teaching and have made some friends to attend this mysterious festival with. Every year, on a full moon, mysterious balls of fire rise into sky from the Mekong River around Nong Khai, and science can’t explain it! Thai folklore suggests nagas (serpents that live in the river), send the fireballs to call Buddha back down to Earth and signify the end of lent.
- Yi Peng Festival (November) -This is a festival of lights and has become synonymous with Chiang Mai (where you’re doing your internship). It takes place over three days and includes cultural activities, religious events, street parades and of course the release of fire lanterns. The release of the lanterns to to release bad memories, pay respect to Buddha and make a wish for the future.
