Living in Asia

Asia is a hugely varied continent that has something to appeal to just about every expat. Teachers from around the world are attracted to Asia because of its fascinating culture and diverse job opportunities. Major cities such as Hong Kong, Singapore, and Shanghai offer high potential for earning in world-class international schools (although you can expect the cost of living to be rather high in these countries). You might prefer the more relaxed pace of life and proximity to the beaches in Thailand, Indonesia or Vietnam. Alternatively you may want to live and teach further from the beaten track in one of the enigmatic Central Asian countries such as Mongolia or Kazakhstan. The main challenges in Asia are likely to be the language barrier and radically different culture.
