I put up a homebased travel agency due to boredom when my son became a preschooler. I started by attending seminars and researching online tutorials about putting up a travel agency. I offer my services to family, friends and friends of friends. I am planning on marketing the many wonderful sights of the Philippines to people from all over the world.
There is one problem though that might become a problem to this plan. I can only speak two languages: English and Filipino. People from other countries doesn't speak my language, Filipino, and some can't even speak English. There is only one solution to this problem that I can think of - a translator. I'm planning to put up a website that has pages in English but has a translation, in one click of a button, to the users desired language.
I am sure that a lot of people have heard of beaches (with fine white sand and crystal clear water) and wonderful sceneries here in the Philippines. Most travel websites though are in English and non-English speaking tourists need to have someone translate it for them first. I'm sure my website will help them learn more about my country in their own language.
