Are you an Asia Expert? Take the Quiz

If you are reading this, you probably already know that what sets Goway apart from many of our competitors is our expert staff. Each member of our team has either lived and/or travelled extensively throughout the countries that they sell. If they haven’t, we give them expert training and support until they get the chance.

But finding these expert staff can sometimes be a challenge. Let’s face it; there aren’t a great many North Americans who’ve had the luxury of taking a year off work and backpacking the world. Often, when I sit down for an interview, I’m looking for someone who has that wanderlust spark. They have to be resourceful, organized, and keen, but above all else, they have to be passionate about Asia and of course, it never hurts if they can ace my Asia Expert Quiz.

I thought you might think it fun to try your hand at the quiz that every Goway Asia Expert has to take and pass before getting the job. Now in fairness, some of the below questions are made to be tough – and some are meant to be easy-peasy. That’s because what the interviewee still has to learn is as important for me to know as their strengths and expertise.

So, just for fun, let’s see how you do. Good luck, and remember, our real life candidates don’t get a multiple-choice format, nor do they have the benefit of Google!

On a not so ‘just for fun’ note, if you do well, and you think you might want to join our team, please send me an email – straight to me. [email protected].

[email protected] is for those other guys. Goway supports an “At Home” program that allows agents to work in their underwear in the privacy of their home office – if they want. We don’t judge.


#1 Name me two countries that the Mekong River flows through.

#2 In which country would I find the Temples of Angkor?

#4 If I had clients who were wildlife enthusiasts and wanted to see orangutans in their natural habitat, to which country would I send them?

#7 In what country would I find the state of Rajasthan?

Congratulations, you passed!

Sorry, you didn’t pass.

Last Question:

Aside from Beijing and the Great Wall of China, give me one other city in China and tell me two reasons why a client would want to travel there.

For this one, you’ll have to submit your answer to [email protected]. (There are simply way too many answers to fit into a multiple-choice format!)

All correct answers will receive a bonus $50 commission on their next new Asia booking with Goway until the end of this year.

Can’t wait to hear from you.
