Thailand is very dangerous for beginners, but its also very good if you join the right agency there. It is needed to be very careful here as you might get in the wrong company quickly. However if you are smart enough to concentrate in modeling, Thailand could be a very good place to get experience. There are only a few agencies you should trust there, so be very careful choosing yours. Some agencies might propose you a driver, but don’t feel it is a great bonus here. Everything is quite cheap here, including the taxi. People are very nice and tourism is highly important. Once you are in Thailand most people will treat you with respect and great attitude. It could be a good mix of work and vacation in Thailand, because most agencies will let or even help to see the beauty of this country. However do not forget the priority of work and leisure. There are quite a lot of nice magazines in Bangkok and some catalogs will be so nice you could even use for the book. The pleasant part is that it’ s always warm, but it’s also unpleasant as you might have uninvited guests living with you like lizards or cockroaches. They might be your new “friends” for the whole term you will be staying and it will surely not be easy to get rid off them. Usually models are coming to Thailand for 2-3 months period.
