Going out on the town and hanging out with your friends in person is enjoyable. Participating in activities that you and them love, such as hiking and visiting theme parks, is also beneficial. But it is actually impossible to always go out and hang out alone or with your friends especially when you are a busy person.
In any situation, the good news is that there are a variety of fun activities to do with friends online that you and your friends can enjoy together regardless of where you are in the globe. You only need an internet connection. Here are some of the online activities that you can do alone or do it together with your friends:
- Watch movies online
During this pandemic, all cinemas are closed in order to slow down the infection rate and curb the viruses from spreading, so watching movies online is the best choice. If you want to watch alone, you can simply make an account and subscribe to Netflix monthly which is beneficial as you can watch it anytime and anywhere. If you are planning to binge watch with your friends, there are a lot of online applications and extensions such as Teleparty, Rave or Discord. You can explore and choose which one that you like the most.
- Window shopping online
Shopping can be tiring and maybe you will need plenty of time to do so. Weekends are usually the days where you can go to the mall and shop for everything that you want. But, if you do it online, you will not have to wait until weekends to window shop. You can simply browse through online shopping platforms such as Shopee, Taobao, Amazon, Zalora, and so on. Share the links with your friends or family if you want them to choose anything for you.

Nowadays, there are a lot of online games that you can find on the internet or you can download on your laptop, computer or smartphone. There are games where you can play alone or play it with your friends online. You can play Among Us, PUBG Mobile, Valorant, Call Of Duty or even play online slot games in Malaysia. Decide whatever you want to play online and you don’t have to go out and play. There are even online arcade games.

Staying at home and doing nothing might be exhausting and energy draining for some people. You can choose to do things that make your mind wander to every inch of the world which is by planning future trips.
