"Increasing Popularity of Working Holiday and Impact on Travellers' World Views."

Working holiday has been a popular form of travel for young people in the past few years. However, not many people know about how the working holiday program helps with young people's mind-thinking and their future career. This report provides information about the increasing trend of working holiday for young people. The causes of the trend and the impact on travellers' world views will also be discussed.

What is "Working Holiday"?
It is a scheme usually offered by the government in the country which provides travellers opportunities to undertake employment in the country by issuing a visa for the purpose of supplementing their travel funds. Many young people can experience living in a foreign country by getting a casual or full-time job offered by the local businesses, without undergoing the usual costly expenses of finding work sponsorship in advance or going on expensive university exchange programmes.
