A Different And More Authentic Experience Through Airbnb’s Trips In Bangkok
Following the global debut of a new platform in Los Angeles last November 2016, Airbnb has introduced Trips in Bangkok that will move the company beyond a home sharing concept to an end-to-end hospitality solution. Trips in Bangkok will offer Homes, Experiences and Places to allow visitors in Thailand a unique experience from the events that will be designed and led by locals.
Thailand is a significant and fast growing market for Airbnb. To date, there has been a 149% increase in the number of locals who use the service to travel in the past year alone. There is also a 93% year-on-year increase on the number of Thais that are willing to share their home and passions to visitors.
Until recently, Airbnb has been associated with home sharing and transforming the way that people travel by allowing them the experience of living like locals. With Trips in Bangkok, Airbnb will take it services further; it will add bookable local experiences so that visitors will enjoy an authentic way of exploring Bangkok.
Visitors will experience an insider’s view of the city, unprecedented access to areas and places that are not traditionally part of tour packages. Trips in Bangkok is not limited to guests that are using the Airbnb platform; experiences can also be booked by Bangkok locals and residents from other parts of Thailand that want to discover something unique in the capital city.
Tourism is most confined to the busy urban center and Airbnb wants cities to diversify tourism so that the locals can earn extra income by sharing their passions. According to Joe Gebbia, co-founder and chief product officer of Airbnb, Trips in Bangkok will provide visitors an opportunity to see and experience the real character of Bangkok and the people who live there. Travelers certainly want to experience the real soul of Bangkok, its distinctive culture and rich heritage.
