Best job titles in Asia – “coconut palm climber”

Best job titles in Asia – “coconut palm climber”

There are many self claimed jobs in the world and we have seen a few of those during our travels in Asia. One of the most brave ones must have been when we met a man in Lombok, Indonesia who climbed palm trees for a living. Without safety and without stop.

He could climb 100 palm trees (high ones) in one day and he fed his family by maintaining coconut palm trees for hotels and other customers as well as buying the coconuts of the trees he climbed selling them on the markets. With good profit.

The man really looked like he was built for the job and we could tell he was fear less. Check out the video and you’ll see what we are talking about.
