    HI all,
    I am a teacher with over fifteen years experience, what sort of package would be acceptable outside of Bangkok and Phuket ?
    Any input appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    It depends on so many different factors.

    Some of the major ones are: if you have children or not, will you have a partner with you? What kind of lifestyle do you want to live? Will you have any income from back home? Do you have any debts to pay at home, etc.

    Be more specific and then we can hopefully help.

    I would see a minimum expectation being 80,000 per month after tax with housing, health insurance and fees paid for children on top.

    You won't get a lot up north unless you get into the IB school just outside of Chiang Mai. Around 70k including housing allowance for any of the others.

    70000 to 80000. 90000 if you get lucky. The premature education establishment in CM is probably the one exception.

    The burning season is very off putting for someone with allergies. 2-4 months of days where Chiang Mai is the worst polluted city in the world on some days and you are advised to stay indoors is something I will avoid.
    Thanks to everyone who replied.

    That is absolutely true. Last Feb-March was unbelievably bad. Fingers crossed it’s better next time.
