Things to do during a Gap Year

Hey there! I was hoping to get some suggestions on what to do for my gap year. I would appreciate it if anyone could offer some fun and exciting ideas that involve travel and gaining experience.
Thanks in advance!

i would say do volunteering in another country (if you like kids do it in local schools and such)
So many ideas, but I guess it depends on your budget/interests.

I did a backpacking trip in Asia, Australia and New Zealand which was amazing.

Some ideas I would recommend:
Tours
Learn a language
Working holiday
Internships (boring but will help your career)
Volunteer
Backpack south east Asia (Thailand is amazing!)

If you are struggling to arrange something maybe use a travel company like Gap Year World or go chat to a travel advisor at Flight Centre.
