Where and How: I lived in Suphanburi, Thailand, for one year, teaching English as a second language through CIEE's Teach in Thailand program.

Best Advice: Use Tiger Balm to relieve itchy mosquito bites, turn around when you approach a squat toilet to prevent splashing (face the opposite direction you would think -- usually the back of the bathroom), and learn as much Thai as you can -- it will get you local prices instead of foreigner prices, plus lots of new friends.
