Different options to suit different budgets.
Apartment, serviced apartment or hotel?
Renting an apartment or a house in Thailand is cheap. It will cost something in the range of 4,000 - 8,000 Baht (US$120 - US$240) per month + utility bills for a studio apartment or a small house with cable TV, a fridge, air conditioning, a hot shower and other amenities.
However, until you have chosen a job and have decided exactly where you will be working, it is best not to commit yourself to a long accommodation contract.
We have established special 1-month deals — exclusively for people taking the full time TEFL course — with two apartments and one hotel; all less than 15 minutes walking distance from the training centre.
Local Apartment (budget accommodation)
The Grand Living Place is a clean modern building within 12 minutes walking distance of the training centre. While not fully serviced, it does include bedding. TVs and fridges can be rented at extra cost (subject to availability)
The prices shown below are based on one person. A free airport pickup is included in the price. Electricity is an additional charge, metered according to your personal usage.*
Serviced Apartment (mid-range accommodation)
