So it was just a thought really...but i thinkin that im gonna go back to SE asia at some point and wouldnt mind perhaps stickin around for a while and ive spoken to a few travellers who say that they have heard of people who just stay in an area and get a job in a bar or something, obviously not gettin payed much but get accom and food and enough to survive...i was wondering how true this was and how easy it is to get this kind of work?

thanks!!

I have heard of this term once and they call it perma vacationers... you know those people who visits countries and just opens their own business in a tourist destination and everyday is like a vacation for them... if you would be opening a business then you should choose the place carefully, opening a business in some countries in SE Asia is not difficult as it is cheap and getting people to work for you is not hard. if you will be working for someone then experience can give you an edge in your application..

good luck
