Not everyone has the opportunity to uproot their family and start travelling without any sort of job or income. We love this post by Sujata which gives you some options to still Live The Dream.

If you want to travel around the world, but don't think you have the finances to do so, than earning money while you travel could be the right choice for you. In fact, traveling to South East Asia gives you a wide variety of opportunities to earn money while you enjoy your holiday in this exotic destination. Become a self-employed nomad while you make your way around the world, enjoying the many different sights and sounds that each new destination offers you. The following are just some of the most popular ways that you can really earn money while traveling in South East Asia.


Teaching English

Teaching English as a second language is one of the most popular ways in which you can earn money while traveling in South East Asia. If you are fluent in English, this could be the best and easiest opportunity for you while providing you with financial gain. In most cases, you may need to obtain a TEFL qualification before being able to teach English in South East Asia or the company that you decide to work through may provide you with classes to obtain this certification. Teaching English as a second language in this country typically requires a year-long commitment. In addition to earning money for teaching your native language, you may also be given housing and food during your stay. Hop on flights to Bangkok and start your journey today as you earn money for teaching English.

World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms

Working with World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms is a type of volunteering opportunity that gives you the chance to travel in South East Asia for cheap. Through these programs, you will volunteer to work on organic farms in the region and in return will be provided with free room and board during your stay. In addition, you may find other volunteering opportunities depending on where you are traveling to that also offer these excellent benefits. Some opportunities may also provide you with a small pay for volunteering your time in addition to room and board. This is a great way to save money and potentially earn money while seeing all that South East Asia has to offer.


Hostel Workers

Hostels and hotels are always in need of employees that are fluent in various languages to meet their visitor’s needs. Many hostels will hire part-time and full-time employees and provide them with free room stays within the facility while working there. While this may not be your ideal long-term opportunity, it is a good way to get your feet on the ground within the country and earn some extra money.


Travel Blogging

People across the internet love to read about the lives and adventures of others. Before your holiday in South East Asia, create your own travel blog that you will update regularly. It is important to get your blogs name out there through effective marketing practices in order to gain a following. Visitors and ad clicks on your travel blog will allow you to earn a profit while you write about your travels and things that you have enjoyed while in South East Asia.
