The most epic 6-month internship

Chloe Kara - The Travel Intern

“There’s no doubt when I say that this is the best internship experience ever. If travelling around the world, documenting it all through articles and videos, having creative freedom, meeting amazing humans and eating food around the world sounds like your cup of tea, there’s no better time than now to join us in TTI (and did I mention that you get paid to do all that?)”Chloe, Videographer & Host (Intern)

Renald Loh - The Travel Intern“I found my dream job in The Travel Intern — one that has cultivated an innate curiosity about the world, and continually pushes me beyond my current capabilities. Work becomes less of a chore and more of an exciting prospect when, every day, you’re surrounded by talented people who not only work hard, but know how to have a good time too.”Renald, Writer & Host (Intern)

Clarence Beh - The Travel Intern“I’ve grown so much as a content creator and as a traveller in the last 6 months. There is never a dull moment at TTI – you’re constantly sent off on crazy adventures with the craziest people. You won’t find a job like this anywhere else!” — Clarence, TTI Videographer & Host (Intern)

Lucas Ian Tay - The Travel Intern

“My perception of travel has been altered drastically. No longer is it merely an opportunity of escape from the humdrum of daily life, but it serves as a conduit to learn about and experience new cultures. Ultimately, as a Travel Intern, you are challenged daily to step out of your comfort zone, both creativity and experientially.”Lucas, TTI Videographer & Host (Intern)

Ria Chen - The Travel Intern““Leave all your expectations at the door and buckle up. You’re in for the ride of your (intern) life.””Ria, TTI Writer & Host (Intern)
