    I'm Egyptian, i'm wondering is it possible to find work in a Travel Company, in Bangkok,as a tour guide. I have no problem with learning Thai Language. I have perfect Arabic, English and Russian Language.

    That is one of the restricted occupations for foreigners. You have to be Thai to be a tour guide.

    Technically you would still be a tour guide and you wouldn't be able to get a work permit. However, if you came over from say Taiwan with your tour group, you are allowed to be the translator for the Thai tour guide. But, there must be a Thai tour guide. Having said that, there are Thai tour guides for most languages! Some pay more than others. I think English is the lowest pay as there are many English speakers. A Thai tour guide that speaks Japanese would get a lot more.

    I see you speak Russian. Maybe you should try Pattaya as many Russians have a beach holiday there. You will also find Russian travel agencies there. Maybe you can pick up a job there. however, it is unlikely you will be able to work legally.
