Visiting a new place is not just about getting far away from home. It’s about learning about a new culture, seeing things you never have seen before, gaining a new perspective on life. A trip to a new place should be an unforgettable experience, not just another Instagram photo op. But how do you experience the authentic traveling experience? What is best to soak up the culture, the food, the customs of a foreign place? Staying with the locals of course!
Ultimately, the power of the Airbnb platform is that it motivates guests to blend into communities, belong anywhere, and live like locals. Joe Gabbia

Sites like Airbnb allows you to make your stay more personable. You get to be hosted by local people who love to share their culture and space with guests. It is not rare for travelers to go back to the same host many times because of the relationship they built. Some hosts, called Superhosts, go well above and beyond of just providing accommodations. It’s a big departure from the transaction-like stays at hotels. The places that you stay are also much more varied than regular hotels which are more interested in touristic and heavy populated places. You can find Airbnb almost anywhere in the world, some in extremely secluded places. You won’t find hotels there!
As the world becomes more globalized, learning about different cultures has become a must. Many travelers are moving away from strict travel packages and looking to make their experience much more personal. This means getting away from the busy touristic spots and getting to know the real place and everything that comes with it. How do you like to travel? Are you the adventurous type? Have you ever tried Airbnb? Try it out on your next trip!
