Australian Falang in Thailand Causing Trouble - News

On Friday Pattaya Police conducted conducted a search at Oasis Agogo in Soi Buakao, Thailand, because of an assault on a foreign man 24 hours earlier. It is believed the Australian man didn't pay for his 160 bht beer! When police raided the bar there were 15 staff members with the boss. 

Because of the video clip of the alleged assault on the Australian tourist the prior night, Police arrested Khun Gisana aged 30, known only as “Johnny”. He admitted to attacking the foreign man, after he was attacked by another foreign man from a bar next door. 
It is thought the initial attack by the foreigner was over excessive noise and then out of anger due to the 160 Baht unpaid bill, Khun GIsana then assaulted him as seen on the youtube clip above.
Police decided to use their discretion and did not arrest the bar worker, despite his admission. Cannot believe they didn't arrest him, if this was the other way around the foreigner would have been locked up! The bar will operate as normal and no closure notices will be imposed on the venue.

Going to a flower festival can be an amazing day out for the family. With many things to do - you won't get bored for one second. Chiang Mai Flower Festival is a Thai festival where the mass of flowers dominates the scene with colors.

Can I Teach In Thailand Without A Degree?

Can I teach in Thailand without a degree?

Teaching in Thailand without a degree is a risky business and you might be thrown head first out of the country, if the Thai government and police catch up with you. 

So, Do I Need A Degree

You need a degree to gain a work permit. As Thailand progresses as nation, so do the people, and therefore students require someone who is of good standing to teach them. More often than not you get dsigruntled expats filling these jobs - and in short are 'taking the piss'. Turning up to work drunk, preying on the vulnerable girls, and not doing their jobs properly.

Do English Teachers Need Experience

All they want is a white skinned performing monkey as I've heard from the many sad expats I meet out hear. From what I've learnt they want a white monkey that can teach English. Admittedly some schools don't care, but the closer we get to the ASEAN Community, the more they want teachers that are established, good at their job, and hold a TEFL Certificate. This shows that the teaching standards in Thailand are getting more professional.

What English Jobs Can I Do?

If you hold a degree, you have so many options available to you. Once I finished my TEFL course, I started emailing for jobs and received many skype interviews. I was then left with a lot of job offers to consider. I went with the highest paid, and it turned out to be a really good experience. Needless to say I will be returning to the same town to work, but at the high school this time.

Can I Still Work Without A Degree?

If you don't hold a degree. You can still pick up work, but it will be harder. My friend on my TEFL course he found work 3 months after finishing the TEFL, and now he's in a good job, and they are sending him to uni to get a degree. So don't give up.

The major problem you will encounter, is that you won't be able to get a work permit without a degree. That's why many schools prefer degree holders. You will be obliged to take many VISA runs without a degree. And they Sir! Are a pain in the arse!

Whats your experience teaching without a degree?

Amazing Thailand Sets Up A Tourist Court

Tourist Courts In Thailand

The Thailand Tourism Court - Amazing Thailand and its Tourism Ministry is working on a plan to set up a tourist court to offer better protection to foreign visitors to the country. Many times they are needed as a lot of petty crimes happen - beware some Thai Girls are out to scam you.


Tourism Minister Somsak Phurisrisak said on Monday that the idea of the tourist court establishment was conceived to provide fair and better protection to visiting travelers after more and more have been reportedly harmed while traveling in Thailand.

Mr. Somsak said the concept is now under deliberation with Mr. Wirat Chinwinijkul, Secretary-General of the Courts of Justice.

He added that the court establishment will initially begin in the form of a tourist department under the Courts of Justice.

The Tourism Minister went on to say that the discussion with Mr. Wirat also shed light on the idea of a night court, in order to help speed up the legal proceeding.

Mr. Somsak is also scheduled to meet with National Police Chief Pol. Gen. Adul Saengsingkaew on May 1, when he will ask the police to be more swiftly and determinedly handle all cases related to tourists in order to allow subsequent court proceedings to go on and without any delay.
