Airbnb is embarking on new experiences. With Trips, the American company proposes to travel differently and to discover the culture of a country thanks to the hosts members of the platform.

When traveling, we often look for the little thing that will make the stay unforgettable by absorbing the local culture. Airbnb, the community leasing platform, understood this and has launched “Trips” in 12 cities around the world (Paris, London, Florence, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, Havana, Cape Town, Nairobi , Seoul and Tokyo).

What exactly is this novelty? “Trips” offers two options “Experiences” and “Places”. In the first category, tourists have the opportunity to book original two-hour experiences, such as a cooking class, a bike tour or a surf course. But if you want to extend the experience you can choose to test the “Immersion” formula that takes place over several days.

Discover local gastronomy differently

We have already spotted experiences for you that you may like. You can, for example, stroll on old bicycles in Barcelona and go from vineyard to vineyard to taste wine. You can also do your shopping in one of the markets of Florence, and return to your hiring to learn how to cook the local products. Finally, you can also make your own cocktails in San Francisco.

These unique moments will allow you to immerse yourself in the local culture, to share and meet new people. And if you also want to discover places less tourist by yourself, go for a ride on the “Places” menu of Airbnb. Community members share their best addresses.
