Because our staff at SWU TEFL recognizes that different people have different preferences for accommodation, and different standards of luxury, we are offering several different packages at different rates, which will determine your living situation during the training course in both Bangkok and Prachuap.
For the portion of the course that takes place in Bangkok, we strongly recommend staying either in the luxury hotel on the SWU campus, or in one of the accommodation options we have arranged in the famous Banglamphu district, which is conveniently located near some of Bangkok’s most popular sites (the Grand Palace, the National Museum, etc.) and the Khaosan Road area, a location legendary for offering both Thai and Western services to travelers from all walks of life. In this area, you will be able to easily experience Thai culture, find English-speaking friends and acquaintances from all over the world, buy souvenirs and used books in your language of choice, experience Bangkok’s nightlife, and get by comfortably with little or no knowledge of Thai. If you stay elsewhere, we will do our best to help you meet your needs and overcome any language barrier you may encounter, but we cannot guarantee that there will always be English speakers available to assist you. Until you are somewhat more familiar with Thailand, either the Khaosan area or the luxury accommodations provided at SWUTEL, the on-campus four star luxury resort near your training facility, would be ideal locations for your stay.
In addition to the options listed below, we also have a number of other recommended options if you would prefer to arrange your own hotel or one of our first choices is overbooked. The base cost for the program during our initial promotional season is $1,400, and those who choose to find their own accommodation would be responsible for arranging their own payment. If we are required to find a new hotel for you after booking one of the other packages, we will arrange a place as close to the price and quality of the option you have chosen, with your approval.
