Not only is it a huge ask to define and describe Asia, the largest and expectedly the most visited continent in the world, in some hundred scribed words, but also is unjustified.  With over 50 countries covering around 8.7% of earth’s surface area, and a gigantic population of around 4.4 billion people, Asia is a land of diverse culture and spirituality infused to the core. An opportunity to volunteer in Asia, thus, is a lifetime of an experience.

Volunteering Solutions has various programs set up across 9 countries, in over 15 cities. From teaching small kids in schools, to make young monks help learn English and various healthcare programs; there are ample of opportunities to volunteer. And while doing this act of altruism, you can experience the magical world of that region by exploring the land.

Here is a list of things you can do while volunteering in Asia;

Land of Wonders   

The Great Wall of China, The Taj Mahal of Agra, Wats of Cambodia, Banaue Rice Terraces in Philippines, and the list can just go on. The vast continent of Asia is filled with some of the oldest and finely built monuments and architectures.




Nature lives here

With snowcapped mountains of the Himalayas and serene beauty of coral reefs, the beauty of nature is scattered wherever you look; go as high (trek to Mt. Everest) or dive as deep as you can. The green landscapes stretched for miles and diverse wildlife persisting in dense forests signifies the massive flora and fauna.




Prostrate to the spirituality

‘The Golden East’, that’s what Asia got as a nickname due to the myriad of temples and other religious buildings it has. No matter in which part of the continent you are in, your day doesn’t ends without a visit to any of the religious sites. From Angkor Wat and Golden Temple, to Jokhang Temple and Shwedagon Pagoda, the continent is bludgeoned with spiritual houses of Hinduism, Buddhism and other Asian religions.




Adventure beyond limits

Trekking, bouldering, snorkeling, canoeing, canopying, kayaking, surfing, paragliding….. this entire paragraph can be full of only activities and no other word. There is literally no dearth for adventure activities in any part of Asian continent.

Only smell will make you hungry

The kind of variety in local cuisine of any of the country in Asia is remarkable. Go to India and get the real taste of spicy food with Butter Chicken and Mutton Seekh Kababs. And needless to say the tangy taste of Chinese food with oodles of Schezwan sauce.




Take back a part of the place

Shopping is certainly one of the key elements for any trip. While every city has a number of fair trade markets and souvenir shops, the choices for you to shop are limitless. Be it the Chatuchak Weekend market in Bangkok or the Pānjiāyuán market in Beijing, you can find many places to buy some of the finest, handmade artifacts.
