Locals enjoy learning English, and have come to know this small city for its hub of schools. There are job opportunities, and since so many locals are eager to learn, you can procure private lessons for extra income. Monthly living expenses are about $600, much less compared to Bangkok.
There are plenty of fun things to do on the weekends like visit beautiful temples, a large lake, do loads of shopping, and explore exotic markets. The locals love their city so much they started a blog to give you tips for living and teaching in Khon Kaen.
