Did you know Asia is the largest continent on Earth? It covers 9% of our planet’s surface and it’s formed by 48 countries. In a work exchange in Asia you’ll enter an almost endless world of discovery. From pristine beaches and communities visited by backpackers every year in Thailand, Vietnam or Cambodia to skyscrapers in South Korea, Japan or Hong Kong, Asia is very diverse. It’s also ideal to travel on a low budget, with affordable food and tour options for all kinds of travelers.
If you want to save money on accommodation, there is a range of ways to work for a hostel in exchange for room and board in Asia. In a work exchange experience in Asia, you can use your creativity to play music in a hostel to liven up the mood, create new drinks as a bartender, promote parties, help with social activities and much more. If you’re not the outgoing type, other possible tasks for work exchange in Asia include video-making, photography, cooking, painting or even content writing.
