Watcharawittaya is a mid-size government school in a town of Kamphaengphet, which is the provincial capital of Kamphaengphet province. The town is located halfway between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. So the both cities are easily accessible by buses or vans.
The school is located right in the town next to the Big C Mall. The cost of living in Kamphaengphet is relatively cheap. There are a few foreign teachers who have been living in the town for six years and over. There is some western food available from the local mall, supermarkets, and restaurants.

The successful candidates must be enthusiastic, reliable and honest, have respect for Thai people and Thai culture, have a positive view of Thailand and MUST LIKE TEACHING (Not to be here for another visa extension!)
