At present, the global situation has affected everyone in one way or another. The damage done to the tourism industry can be discussed for days. Nowadays, everyone is thinking about the answer to one question: How to win from the crisis?! I would advise based on my travels and experiences.
Everyone is aware of the Airbnb.com project. You can book home to stay in your destination country via this platform. However, the platform observed it was losing a segment that did not want to stay at home during the trip. So they came up with a shattering piece of the idea to the tourism market. They created a section called Airbnb Experiences and connected travelers and locals in one platform. This section has touched the hearts of travelers like me who want to discover the local culture and people in the countries. The platform allows everyone to post any tour, training, event, service, and travelers choose the activity according to their wishes and budgets. Just imagine, there is an experience of having a “dinner with a local family” on the platform. Isn’t it great? We lost the chance to learn the cuisine, food, and culture of that country at dinner with the locals, but please do not miss it. We also found the photographer in the Airbnb Experience section in Singapore. We have reserved the services offering the photosession, which was convenient for our budget and time. We talked to the photographer through that platform, set the place and time. After the photoshoot, the photographer told us from which platform we could download the photos. Usually, the pictures are uploaded to your account on the Airbnb platform, but in some cases, other companies offer the service, so they give you another platform. The service we have selected included 81 photos, 15 of which we were able to download for free. They provide you with the option to pay 25USD for an additional 25 pictures and 50USD for all photos.
During this quarantine period, choose the country you want to visit and the “experience” you wish to have. Don’t lose the “experience” when everyone can travel as soon as the borders are opened.
Unfortunately, the Experience section of the platform is not yet open to every country. However, right now, everyone, even the photographers, can take advantage of the current free time, register on the platform and send their willingness to offer tours, events showing the culture, and the values of their country to tourists. Even they can add photoshooting service from every beautiful corner of their country. After receiving a large number of requests, the platform may add the country to participating countries.
I hope to meet in a more beautiful, safe, fantastic world.
