Freelance writing in Thailand

Virtual Travel Guides is a dynamic content supplier for international e-commerce companies. We specialise in mass content for worldwide destinations, focusing on online media.

Our company is entirely virtual, and everyone works from home. Since starting out in 2003, we have grown to include more than 20 Asia-based freelance writers, turning out 1,000 pages of travel information each month.

We have written guides on more than 2,500 destinations worldwide. To meet the brief and budget needs of our clients, these guides are all written from internet research. A typical example of the kind of online travel guides we produce can be seen here: Hotel Travel guide to Amsterdam.

Virtualtravelguides is frequently expanding our team and recruiting new writers. Rates are set per guide, paid monthly and calculated roughly at US$12 equivalent per hour. Our senior writers have been benefiting from guaranteed full time work since we started.

Applications are welcome from experienced and suitable writers and editors only. We are also looking for experienced editors and proof readers. A brief background of your relevant skills and experience should be emailed to the editor. We will contact you shortly thereafter and possibly ask you to complete a simple writing test to assess your suitability.
