Skift Take

We’re working on a finding a traveler that’s already snagged one of these gigs to find out if a diet of foreign food, Facebook, and Twitter is all it’s cracked up to be.

A city in China is seeking a “Modern Day Marco Polo” to discover the city’s most tourism-worthy places and tweet about them.

It’s the latest of various envy-inducing job alerts over the last two years… The “job,” offered by Hangzhou Tourism Commission, apparently demands nothing more than broadening one’s cultural experiences over the course of a year and spreading them via social media.

A paycheck of €40,000 (US$51,870) will be provided.
