Have you ever experienced how traveling makes the world feel smaller, connecting you to people and places more than ever before? Airbnb, the world’s leading community driven hospitality company, has recreated this feeling by taking the viewer on a train ride full of surprises in its newest film that is being launched today.
Today I want to share with you the below promotional video from Airbnb, who are promoting their Airbnb Asia properties. Regular readers will know that we are all about not all budget travel, but also slow travel and really experiencing each destination.
When I was in my early 20’s I would only stay in hostels. The cheaper the better. I was also a huge fan (and still am) or couch surfing, which allows you to stay with local people on their couches for free.
But as I grew a little older I began to get tired of the hostel lifestyle. Stinky rooms, loud disrespectful people, and bed bugs all tested my patience with budget hostels. And although there are still some great hostels at there I would totally stay at again, I began to feel like maybe I was too old for hostels.
Enter Airbnb. This program combines everything I love about budget accommodation, with everyone I love about couch surfing, but in a setting more suitable for my needs now that I am in my late 20’s and crave a little bit more comfort. Also, now that I have a little boy, my accommodation requirements have changed again.
Airbnb lets you search anywhere in the world. You can chose your price range, and also if you want to rent the entire place, just a private room, or if you are looking for a share room. So if you are like early 20’s me, you can opt for cheaper shared rooms, or if you need a private room you can do that too. Airbnb is still similar to couchsurfing as well as you get to be hosted by a genuine local person, who you can chat with before your trip.
Our next overseas trip is to Kuching Malaysia, and you wouldn’t believe the amount of choice we found in this small Asian city. There are so many options! We have never used Airbnb before, but I think we are converted now.
