China seems like the best place to teach English at a University with just a BA degree and some kind of TEFL.

Are there other countries that compare?

The ones I have researched require more advanced degrees.

Are there other countries anyone can recommend?

When I say easy, I mean acquiring a position. I also like the freedom a Chinese Uni English Teacher has in creating your own curriculum

I’m not sure if it’s the easiest, that depends on the uni, but it might be the only place possibly to teach with just degree and TEFL. I guess that’s what you mean. The salary, however, is just about commensurate to those qualifications! - In the public sector, at least, which is where one would be going with a BA. Private and joint venture uni’s require at least an MA here too.

Thailand has jobs with similar low standards.

All you need to do is be entertaining and don't fail any of the little darlings.

meanwhile back in China...
I think the best way to think of uni and other jobs here is 'lowest barriers to entry'.
That coupled with it being the largest market.
Also, many regions are 'hard to staff' becuse of pollution and remoteness.
This means many opportunities are available where qualifications and experience are 'nice to haves' rather than absolutes.
If anyone has had experience of being recruited by provincial government recruiters who operate on behalf of multiple schools that would make a good thread.
I've met such people at the Beijing Job Fair and they seem straight up and honest about the reasons their provinces have for finding FT recruitment difficult.
