Expat guide: Bangkok, ThailandWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Bangkok, Thailand.

Bangkok is home to some 9.7 million people and has a distinctive Buddhist landscape, with gold-layered spires, elegant pagodas, and enormous Buddha statues. It is the perfect example of an ancient modern day city. The extremities of Bangkok continue making it one of the world's most interesting cities: from its glamorous skyscrapers and abundance of shopping malls, to historic temples and ruins steeped in Buddhist history, from traditional river taxis used by locals, to the powerful BTS, to shacks housing multiple generations of families sat next to luxurious, elegant riverside hotels, Bangkok is without doubt a city that has it all. There is, however, something about this mad chaotic fascinating city that causes people to fall in love with it.

The job market in Thailand is by no means easy for expats to penetrate, as the country has very strict visa rules in addition to a high expatriate to local job ratio. Teaching English remains the most common occupation for expats in Thailand, and perhaps is the easiest market for those who do not relocate to Thailand with a job already in hand. Other popular fields include industries such as oil and gas, in addition to working for high profile companies such as Siemens, HP, IBM and Price Waterhouse.
