Thought you can’t experience the world during lockdown? AirBnB online experiences are changing that.
While naturally the accommodation services of AirBnB aren’t functional with travel coming to a halt during the coronavirus pandemic, trust them to come up with a fun way to let people experience the world nonetheless.
Online experiences from around the world, where you can join one-of-a-kind activities from home is their new initiative. This goes beyond virtual travel, and lets you e-live real experiences with real people, replete with interactions, conversations, and hopefully laughs along the way. From baking classes to dance lessons, Yoga classes to astrology sessions, cocktail making, home concerts, workout Q&A with Olympians…the list goes on for these. These sessions are being offered from all over the world, so be it Tango or Salsa, or authentic Swiss rolls or Moroccan cooking, you quite literally have the world on your platter (screen).
You can pick a time of the day, divided into three slots–morning, afternoon, and evening. These are conducted for small groups, the charges starting as low as Rs 249 per hour, and can go up to Rs 7,578 plus per hour. If you have a talent, skill, or knowledge about a subject to share, you can also sign up for hosting an experience. AirBnB online experiences are fun and help you learn at the same time; making it to the list of most enriching activities to take up during lockdown.
Here are our top picks for the AirBnB online experiences. Sign up for these and don’t forget to explore more.
