I came to Korea a year ago and am finishing up my 1-year teaching contract next month. Over the last year I have watched the Korean won plummet. My salary has decreased by 40%. When I first arrived, I could live like a king and easily save $1000 a month!
I am considering relocating next year to live and teach in either Thailand or Vietnam. The average salary is about 900$ a month in Thailand. Which is very low but its enough to live and have fun in Thailand (but impossible to save anything). I have heard that Vietnam is paying more these days.
Does any know what the average pay is for teaching in Vietnam? I have heard $1500 to $1700 but I would like someone to confirm this.
