Phuket is a great mix of tropical paradise, sophistication, nightlife and fun. Located approximately 862 kilometres south of Bangkok, Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, is often called the ‘Pearl of the South’. Its limestone cliffs, white powdery beaches, tranquil broad bays and tropical in-land forests contribute to making it Thailand’s most popular island. It’s one of the most renowned diving regions in the world, enjoying a tropical climate with average water temperature of 24ºC (78º F) with an unmatched variety of aquatic life.
The southern beaches of the Island offer superb vistas and some of the most glorious sunsets in the world. Many of the best hotels and restaurants in Phuket and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are located here.The southern coastline is blessed with magnificent mountains covered with lush jungle forest that stretch out to meet the azure blue sea and are framed with white powder sandy beaches and fringed with coral reefs.
The north part of the island is less developed and gets only a tiny fraction of the visitors to Phuket. The rugged beauty of the northern beaches can only be enhanced by the feeling of having them all to yourself.
Phuket is also a night clubber’s dream. There’s an amazing variety of nightlife venues to choose from. Phuket has a thriving night life and it’s one of the main attractions of the island. There are plenty of places to party including lively Thai style nightclubs with live bands, Western discos with dance music, small beach side bars, sedate pubs.
Getting around Phuket
Phuket is a great place to tour on foot, but there is also local transportation.
Transportation on Phuket is by “tuk tuk ” (adapted motorcycle based transport). There are lots of them. All you need to do is flag one down and tell the driver where you want to go. The price is fixed by destination and it is customary to give around a 10% tip.
You can easily get to our TEFL course Phuket Thailand program training centre on foot or by tricycle.

TEFL course Phuket Thailand job opportunities
The training centre in Phuket also runs a language school. Subject to availability, you may get offered an English teaching job by the language school at the end of the course.
It is easy to find teaching jobs in Thailand if you have an accredited certificate. Thailand is a great favourite for EFL teachers. With nearly all educational establishments offering English language courses, there are numerous teaching positions available throughout the Kingdom of Thailand.
Schools, colleges, universities, and language schools all employ English teachers in varying numbers.
Our Thai Training Centre has many contacts with local Educational Institutions and Government agencies and is very well paced to assist you in job placement.
So far, all students that have taken the TEFL course Phuket Thailand program and then wanted to stay on and work in Thailand have done so.
It is, however, almost impossible to organize a job in Thailand before going there. Language schools have become stricter, and most will now demand a TESOL TEFL qualification and/or some teaching experience. This is one good reason to choose EBC. We have direct contacts with many language schools. We ensure that your CV/resume is available to potential employers on the last day of the course which should then result in interviews and job offers.
