It has been known that Airbnb has been working on Experiences for awhile, but this is the first time I’ve seen this advertisement and I really love it. I currently work for a company that focuses more on the production side of things within tech so while I’ve always had an interest in this sort of thing (you’ve seen content like this before on Yow Yow!) I feel like my senses for this are now a bit more heightened. There are a few things that attracted me to this idea. Some of my favorite trips have been the ones where I have had experiences there that I could only have in that location ie) going to a pineapple farm in Okinawa, Japan. Now, my mother and I sort of stumbled upon that by chance, but if you’re a planner like me, then this is something that you want to know about and book ahead of time. I’m sure so much research went into this project to learn about the history of the cities and the neighborhoods in addition to finding the individuals to be a part of this to guide guests. I’m quite impressed by all of that. Readers, do you think you’d try Experiences out? Everyone has a very different way of traveling so I’m assuming this might not be for everyone, but are there some of you that would take advantage of this and what would you like to do? Up next – Airbnb tackles restaurant reservation and decides to eat up OpenTable. Just kidding! But, we all know it’s sort of coming so anything can happen!
