Having a passion for travel and wanting to see the world is something Rubinsohn Travel (215) 886-5200 loves. But, sometimes we find that travelers get so caught up in their vacation that they don’t always take in the local community and give back to the places they visit. We have a solution to that. We have chosen a few great places to visit where you can experience an exciting trip, while also finding volunteer opportunities. 


India is known for having rich culture. There are multiple stops to make along your travels in India. The first stop is in Agra to see the Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal is one of the most notable tourist destinations in India for its historical beauty. Another stop is Ladakh. This destination attracts many travelers and it is known as “Little Tibet.” The weather is great and it contains many Buddhist monasteries. After you have visited these places and more, extend your trip and volunteer. Programs vary, but a popular program includes teaching young girls empowerment in schools and shelters. 


Peru has many historical places to see. The Incas left many buildings and temples behind in Machu Picchu and they are must-sees. The ruins themselves appear as if they are touching the sky. The city of Cusco is also a perfect place to visit. Cusco was the former center for the Incan Empire. There is a cultural city center still for tourists to stop by and see the mix of Incan and Spanish cultures. While you’re in this city, there are volunteer opportunities to work with disabled children in schools. Not only can you take in the sights, but you can also make a difference in locals’ lives. 


Australia is always a well-known destination. From being able to see the Sydney Opera House to walking across the Harbor Bridge, it is never a dull moment. Grab your mates that like adventure and head down to the Great Barrier Reef. If you are really into the nature aspect of the coral reefs, volunteer to join a scuba clean-up crew. This is the perfect opportunity to help the environment and explore the Australian waters. 

Don’t wait any longer to book your trip! Give yourself the adventure of a lifetime while still making time in your trip to give back to local communities. Rubinsohn Travel (215) 886-5200 has all of the answers for your perfect vacation.
