Travel is a passion for many, but it is difficult to find a dream travel job. But here is an opportunity! Find out how to get paid to travel, and that too in this time of crisis.
When most countries around the world have sealed their borders and imposed restrictions to contain the spread of COVID-19, traveling or taking a trip could be last on your priority list. But then, how about a virtual trip, for which you get paid too?
In a first, JRPass (Japan Rail Pass) is looking for the
The world’s first virtual travel teaser that would require reviewing one of Japan’s many virtual destinations. For this, the transport website has put together a list of the top 20 virtual tours in the country. Since this is a job that allows you to work from the comfort of your own home, the pay will not be equivalent to a full-time job. However, the website will pay you around $ 250 for your exam.
Destinations listed on the transportation website include some iconic Japanese tourist hotspots, such as Torii Gates at Fushimi Inari Taisha, Himeji Castle, Mount Fuji, Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, and many more.
Interested persons can apply by performing two tasks. First of all, you need to post a photo of yourself on vacation, as well as a review of one of the destinations on the curated list. Then post it on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Don’t forget to tag JRPass (@JRPass) and use the hashtag #JapanVirtualTravel on your post. Also follow them on social networks. The photo doesn’t have to be in Japan, but it really helps. Applications are open until July 20 and the name of the winner will likely be announced by July 22. The winner will be based on the best review published at the end of the entry period.
Note: You can only post one review. In addition, all said destinations are accessible via Google Street View.
The winner will be contacted by the JRPass on social networks.
