*Intro written by a fellow teacher!*
Come check out Dong Ha to save some money, get a rich cultural experience and explore the hidden treasures of central Vietnam.
Unique English teaching opportunity available 1hr north of Hue in quiet and friendly Dong Ha City. 25 hours per week teaching time. Pay is $1400 to $1800 per month take home - depending on experience.
** Accommodation in very nice house provided ** - shared with two other teachers. There is a large park with a lake just across the road for exercise, fishing, or just lazily reading a book on a sunny afternoon.
- You'll be provided you with a strong motorbike - and you can get great use of it here exploring the surrounding beaches and mountains of Quang Tri province and beyond.
- There are some ridiculously beautiful drives that take just 90 minutes from the door. All kinds of opportunities for exploration and camping. This place has it all - from quiet windswept beaches, to remote mountain river valleys with native hill tribe villages all around - super cool stuff!
- Dong Ha is a small town, but not without amenities. There are some swimming pools, gyms, etc and lots of nice local Vietnamese restaurants. There is even a bit of nightlife and a pizza place which is actually decent :)
- Overall you'll find Dong Ha to be very clean, quiet and friendly. It definitely has a more charming feel and slower pace of life than larger cities in Vietnam. There is no such thing as a traffic jam here!
- There's also a train station about 5 minutes from the house for easy weekend getaways to Hue, Da Nang, and beyond...
- The pay isn't as much as you may be offered in a place like Saigon, but considering your housing and transportation are covered, and it is CHEAP to live here otherwise, you can easily save a decent amount in a few short months.
- Teaching hours are predictable and you'll find the students here very eager to learn and extremely well behaved.
*** Overall this job would be a perfect fit for a teacher looking for to see a different side of Vietnam and experience some culture in a relaxed smaller town***
