skytrain-457296_640

Perhaps you’ve been travelling for a while on your savings, but sooner or later you will have to start making money again to sustain your travelling expenses.

What’s great is that you can comfortably live on a relatively low monthly income in Thailand (around 13, 000 Baht). So, what are the ways you can do to start making money while in Thailand to continue your stay or simply not to go broke?

Let us count the ways.

Teach in Thailand. This is the most obvious option. There is virtually no shortage of teaching opportunity in Thailand for you to take advantage on. You won’t get instant riches, but it’ll support your needs. Start by teaching privately, and by getting weekend spots at language schools where you can potentially get full-time work. Leave your CV for future reference as staff turnover is regular there.

Become a Freelancer (writer). If you have your way with words, you can actually make a lot of money as a freelance writer on websites like upwork.com, and if you’re serious about it, you can boost your reputation, plus it could let you earn more than being, say a teacher in Thailand.

Work average around $10 per hour, which will net you a salary of around $1,600 per month. If you travel around and need money, then this is a great frontier while getting paid. Anyway, you must be adept at writing value-ridden articles, and you must submit work on schedule to get your name above others in the business.

If you’re really good, you could even land writing jobs with travel and entertainment websites, in-flight magazines and even Thai newspaper supplements. You can end up making a solid career for yourself.

Work as a Diving Instructor. If you’re qualified, you can consider becoming a diving instructor at one of the most popular diving spots like Krabi, Koh Tao, or Phi-Phi Island. Instructors can earn around 30- 40k per month. Of course, you can take lessons and train to become an instructor.

Become an International Development Worker. If you have an aid/social development qualification, then there may be openings with government offices and other local projects. These positions are typically term-funded, which means they can run for a term of around 1-2 years until the position is changed depending on the case. If you want to be in this sector, sign up for job announcements with Devex.

Become an Entrepreneur in Thailand. Thailand is a thriving country with a lot of opportunities, which means there’s plenty of room to become a Thailand-based entrepreneur. From marketing consultancy or exporting goods. If you have credentials and a passion in a specific niche, why not try starting your own business instead of just working for other people.

The good thing about opening a business in Thailand is that you can keep living costs low while setting up business. This can relieve financial constraint and give you time to prosper yourself.

Parting Note

That’s pretty much it. Of course, there are other opportunities in Thailand that are not mentioned in this article, so keep looking for the right opportunity that best suits your skills and situation.

If it is your first time (or couple of times) travelling to Thailand, make it a habit to read up on Thailand travel tips  compiled by experts – Thai culture, language, health, safety, laws, watchouts, scams, emergency contacts and more – you need all of this if you’re going to make the most out of your Thai travel.

Above all else, remember to cherish the destination and the experiences you’ll get while in the beautiful country of Thailand. Best of luck!
