Sataban.com was created for the Thai and Foreign teachers looking for a program that they would like to be involved with, for the Thai parents and expats desiring to find the right school -that is the school that will meet their expectations and needs, and for the schools themselves desiring to promote, to be more visible on the web, and to get positive feedback.
Sataban.com Thai schools directory regroups all schools present in Thailand: addresses, emails, phone numbers, photos and more.
