Why Traveling Should Be More Popular to Young Asians

Statistics say that young Asians don’t travel as much as their Western counterparts.

And by traveling, we mean going beyond the country to experience the world outside.

Real traveling means being able to stay for an extended period, living like the locals, exploring

each city and its wonders, and truly experiencing the rhythm of a place.

Yes, many young Asians join tour groups to take selfies in front of landmarks, but only a handful

truly travel.

Why Young Asians Don’t Travel As Much

The issue might be cultural, as many Asian mothers are often wary of their children going to

far-off places, always thinking the worse that might happen – sickness, injury, accidents, loss

of item or theft – circumstances that are easily solved with the

offers.

Some Asians grow up with an irrational fear of the road less taken, keeping them at home.

Money is sometimes an issue as well.

Taking off for a month to actually travel can mean abandoning the responsibilities many feel for

their families.

Heck, even those with some disposable income choose to just stay where they are, spending instead

on new gadgets or daily extravagance.

Who doesn’t want to experience camping in Sahara?

How about climbing Mount Kinabalu?

The thrill of Madrid bullfights?

If you’re a young Asian, you should consider doing the same.

Now is the best time to go on adventures, and here’s why!

You have less financial responsibility.

As a young person, your body can take the beating of extended traveling.

You can survive on cheap street food.

You can handle that overnight bus ride and lumpy hostel bed.

And budget airlines line up the sky!

Traveling makes you humbler, yet gives you confidence.

You might be young and arrogant right now, but travel has a way of humbling everyone.

Standing on top of a mountain or lost in the middle of nowhere will make you realize how big

the world is and how trivial you are.

That’s hard to achieve when you’re stuck in your office cubicle.

And while it humbles you, traveling is also incredibly empowering.

You’ll find yourself doing things you never though you can do, whether that’s being in the middle

of nowhere, standing in places you only see in photographs, meeting new and diverse people who

are nothing like you, or being in a situation that you never dealt with before.

Traveling totally changes you.

Lastly, traveling changes you for the better.

Why?

It allows you to see just how wonderful the world is, the magnificence of creation, the innate goodness

in people, that you can survive on your own, that there’s more to life than just being contented.

Yes, there can be some complications, but overall – you will begin to FIND yourself and be who you truly are.

And as much as negative experiences can happen, you can always get the best travel insurance Singapore

has to offer.

This way, you’ll have less worry about unseen circumstances, such as loss of things, medical concerns,

or any other likely issue that you may encounter while traveling.

End Note

So, to you I say, go travel while you’re young and while you can,

There might come a time when added responsibilities, health concerns, or other things will no

longer allow you to enjoy the freedom you have now.

Go on that journey!
