Airbnb Online Experience: Discover the World from Your Home
Airbnb Experiences introduces a new wanderlust-worthy way to connect with people and travel virtually across the globe
The COVID-19 situation has made leaving the house one of the most difficult things to do at the moment. Not only would you need to avoid crowded areas, but also prepare your sanitary equipment and get home before the curfew begins. Most of us have resolved to work from home as well as taken up online shopping and activities. Travelling, however, can be a bit trickier.
Airbnb, the online lodging and travel experience marketplace we all know and love, had recently launched its new feature on their platform called “Online Experiences” that allows travelers and hosts across the globe to connect virtually. Now, you can embark on an adventure to faraway places from the comfort of your home.
Just like the in-person experiences, Airbnb’s Online Experiences allows its hosts to continue earning and provide unparalleled experiences for their guests including cooking, city tours, forest walks, and culture exchanges like before, but now through an online platform.
For those of you who may not know, Airbnb Experiences are activities that go beyond the typical tour or class. It is designed and led by locals all over the world who are eager to show off their city, craft, culture and cause while giving you a unique travel experience that you couldn't find anywhere else.
With the ongoing travel ban and closing of airports in most countries, Airbnb’s Online Experience is becoming another prominent option where travel enthusiasts can enjoy the magic of exploration and discovery without leaving the comfort of their home.
As of now, there are over 50 Online Experiences on the platform that you can explore including cooking with a Moroccan family, traveling back in time to Germany in the 1930s, meeting the dogs of Chernobyl, exercising with an Olympic athlete, mixology with professional bartenders, and many more.
If you’re starting to get interested in all these Online Experiences, head on over to the Airbab website to find out more. Most of the activities are held through the Zoom conference platform where the host will provide information and requirements beforehand like the maximum number of participants, time of day, and pricing. Experiences usually lasted between 1 to 2 hours.
What if you want to become a host yourself? Airbnb is always looking for people to join their community of hosts, especially if you can arrange a unique trip or activity. Find out more on Airbnb Experience and start creating your very own experience for free today!
