Model work in Thailand

If you want to make money as a model then Thailand is really the wrong country for you. The only chance you have to make money is that you are either a half Thai or some sort or that you are some kind of Asian model that the Thais like. It does not really matter if you can speak Thai but for now you need to have some Thai in you to become really famous.

Most foreign models are just used and never seen again and you will not get a work permit making it illegal to actually work here at all. That puts you in a pretty bad spot when it comes to ask for money or take someone to court for a dispute. When there is a casting you will have loads of models show up and most of the time you asked to dress almost naked and line up for the Thai to take a look at your bodies. If this is something you are uncomfortable with dont even bother to become a model in Thailand. Your salary will be very low and some month you will be happy if you can have your own flat. The low pay is a good way to keep you skinny even if good food is cheap in Thailand.

Most models in Thailand stay around Rama 4 in Bangkok and they share apartments with girls that do more than modeling in Thailand. It is not difficult to become a model in Thailand you just have to have an ok look and be pretty tall, the taller the better off course. When they have parties for models in Bangkok (about once a day) you can go in and get free drinks just by being tall and say you are a model they will take your word for it. You do not need an actull agent and you can just show up on the different castings and parties. In a matter of days you will have people contacting you to work for them, or not.

But once more if you planning to come to Thailand to become rich doing model work then dont do it, see it as a spring board before you go work in some other country and work up a profile.
