Working on your gap year is a brilliant way to both reinvigorate the travelling funds and to really experience the culture of any given place; there are few more authentic ways to experience a destination than to work in it, among its local people.
Some countries are better than others for working holidays, and further still some countries are better for certain types of jobs. Australia, for example, is a great place for unskilled labour, like fruit-picking, due to the abundance of work and high wages. Many countries in Asia, like Thailand, China and Japan, are great for those who want to teach English as a foreign language, while countries in North America, like the USA and Canada, are perfect if you want to work in a summer camp or at a ski resort.
