Thinking about a school a couple of hours outside Bangkok. We currently live in another part of Asia where the salary is pretty good, but we live in an apartment and it is currently pretty chilly outside (suffering from post-holiday blues perhaps). We'd like to move somewhere warmer where we can have a house, a car, a barbecue, paddling pool for the kids, near beach, etc. This school sounds ideal, with the possible exception of the salary. So, we are trying to figure out the costs; Total combined salary (two teachers, all in, no housing allowance) of about 180,000 Baht a month, minus 20% tax leaves us with about 140,000 Baht a month. Three bedroom house rental should be somewhere between 15,000 and 25,000 a month (school is well outside a major city). Car rental, I believe, is about 15,000 Baht. Minus other bills we'd be left with 100,000 Baht a month to live on. We're not extravagant spenders, would eat mostly local food, go to a higher end western restaurant once or twice a month. Could we feasibly save half of that 100,000 Baht and live off the other 50,000 Baht? And when I say save, I mean save for the long term, not for the next holiday. We would need to take holidays out of the living money. I've compared our current location with this location and it would appear that this is doable. Thoughts?
