Travelling In Asia

Are you planning on discovering the wonders of Asia this summer? You may already know that Asia speaks of another way of life, allowing you to expose yourself to a whole new experience. It is a bucket list must, if you are a travelling enthusiast. Asia is a wonderful destination for you to visit, even if you don’t belong to the above category, but would like to experience something new this summer. It is also inexpensive in comparison to most tourist destinations, adding to the attraction. So if we have convinced by now to visit Asia, we also have another suggestion. Go to Bangkok this time around.

Why go there?
Bangkok is one of the best tourist destinations in Asia. It is also the capital of Thailand and its most populous city. It boasts of millions of tourists every year and has topped the list of many surveys. It is also a hub for international business and economics, turning it into one of the busier cities of Asia. However, it makes for great tourist destination for many different reasons.

Why is it so popular?
Bangkok boasts of a variety of sights many tourists visit every day. They range from royal palaces to temples and museums, allowing you to capture the essence of Bangkok’s cultural experience. The Bangkok markets are a fascinating affair. They are crowded at all times and they basically have everything you would ever want to buy and they offer you a great bargain. Your purchases would be cheap but if you shop prudently, you can find some of the best deals you will ever get and they might even be of generally good quality. You should also experience the night life in Bangkok. It is as vibrant as Bangkok is during daytime. If you can make it, do visit a sky bar in Bangkok. They live up to their name and offer a breath taking view, boasting of a wonderful atmosphere and great company.

More Places to go and Things to Remember
If you ever visit Bangkok, make sure you visit the grand palace. The Buddhist temples and the Hindu shrines are also must see places if you want to experience the culture of Bangkok. Cruise rides and boat rides along the canals of Bangkok would offer you wonderful views of old Thai architecture. However, despite these wonderful places to visit, and places to shop, you should also be careful of scams when you visit Bangkok. Many tourists complain of being tricked into bad bargains, overcharging etc. For instance, gem scams are rife in Bangkok, with many complaining that they have been sold jewellery which are overpriced and fake.

Make Money From Home

The downfall in the global economy along with the steeply increasing inflation rates, everyone had to tighten their belts. The basic income of one individual in the family was not enough to cover the loans and insurance payments for most middle income families from around the world. Both parents had to do jobs, sometimes double shifts in order to cover the basic costs of the family. With the increase on the dependence of the internet, more job opportunities, especially part time ones which can be done from home have opened up. These are ideal for parents with young children who cannot simply leave the children unattended for hours of the day, especially with day care facilities being so expensive. Few are a few ways in which you can earn a few extra dollars from home, without having to abandon your children or compromise on the basic necessities. 

Holiday Homes

If you have an extra room, a couch or an air mattress there is your opening to earn a few extra dollars. You can easily register on to a global trend of an Airbnb property management and open up your home to travelers to bunk on your couch for a lot less than what they would spend on a hotel. This is increasing trend in the global market as it allows young people to travel without having to spend large amounts of money on accommodation. If you have time, add a few extra facilities such as cooking or include meals in your program to earn a little extra.

Online Jobs

With companies depending heavily on the internet for marketing, there are ample jobs on the market for simple things such as article writing which include key words or catch phrases which increase the number of hits on the said company, thereby increasing its probability of appearing on a search engine, thereby indirectly increasing its customer base through internet marketing. There are also sites through which one may bid and gain small jobs such as report writing, 3D image rendering, web designing, ,which can be done on your free time after work. These form of jobs are sometimes conducted through overseas companies which have a better exchange rate, thus paying a pretty decent amount in the end.

While these are very broad options in which to earn extra cash, a small search based on your skillset and time which you can dedicate to a given task; finding part time work should not be a hard task. Starting your own crafts workshop to teach kids art and crafts or music is also a very lucrative business which could lead to something a lot bigger than a simple pocket money finder on the long run.
