Thailand - Where to stay

Asian College of Teachers has chosen the four most popular places of Thailand and undoubtedly the few of the best holiday destinations of the world for holding the on-site TESOL course - Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket &Pattaya. In case you are not willing to take our accommodation or want to arrive prior to the course dates for touring the cities, here is a guide for all you TEFL trainees about where to stay in Thailand as per your convenience.


Bangkok is home to a wide range of hotels from the really shabby to truly world class. The Khao San Road is for backpackers while the rich and famous would surely agree to stay at THE PENINSULA or at THE ORIENTAL on Rattanakosin. On the other hand, Sukhumvit Road has hotels to suit every budget and need. But when you choose a place to stay in Bangkok make sure to choose a hotel near a metro station or a Sky train station. Boutique hotels have mushroomed in Sukhumvit Road which offers more personalized services. Some of the well-known hotels are:

  • Ambassador Hotel, Located on Sukhumvit Road :1450 baht/room/night including breakfast
  • Quality Suite Airport Hotel, Located in ChaengWattana :1900 baht/room/night including ABF
  • The Davis Bangkok, Located on SukhumvitSoi 24 : 2700 baht/room/night including breakfast
  • Grande Villa Hotel, Located on Mahachai Road : 1250 baht/room/night including ABF
Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is the largest city in the North Thailand region. It is roughly 700km north of Bangkok. The TESOL trainees would find the place very quiet and very clean with a wide range of hotels in the offing available at reasonable rates. The TESOL candidates can access the Internet Wi-Fi and a computer from the lobby in most of the hotels. You can find Chiang Mai hotels and resorts, in various price categories.

Phuket is one of the few islands which can boast of such an abundance of sandy beaches and clear waters. There is a wide variety of beach resorts available for the TEFL trainees at different beaches of Phuket. The accommodation costs in Phuket is a little high than what you can expect in any other cities of Thailand as Phuket is the most spectacular beach destination of the world and is a favorite tourist spot and hence the cost of living is expensive here. But whatever the cost be, Phuket offers an ambience and aura which is worth spending for.

It was fun and I learned a lot of things about being a teacher especially an ESL teacher. I also learned a lot of things about myself.

If I said this experience was great, that would be an understatement. I've learned so much about myself and gained so much confidence over this short amount of time. The techniques the trainer learned us will come in very helpful in my teaching career in the future. This was honestly once in a lifetime experience. If you consider taking a TEFL course, Thailand- Bangkok is the place. You're in one of the most beautiful countries while learning.

I had a wonderful and fulfilling experience, and it had everything to do with our trainer, June. Without her, I would have had a very different experience. She goes above and beyond what's expected of her, she cares and is passionate and she trains from the heart.
