Experience Plymouth with a new lens…
Booking.com revealed that in a recent survey they found out that over half of global travellers (53%) reported they plan to take more weekend trips in 2019.
It’s a year that’s predicted to be all about made-to-measure, bite sized travel with more bespoke and tailor made curated travel itineraries. All squeezed into shorter time frames.
Less is most definitely more as travellers are offered a more bespoke experience.
Bespoke experiences have always played a key part of our holidays. In the past (before technology) we were guided by recommendations from friends that knew us. By travel agents that could inform us and a great deal of hoping for the best!
Now we have the world quite literally at our finger-tips. Many of our guests tell us they use YouTube to watch peoples holiday videos that they have uploaded, TripAdvisor for reviews and recommendations and a host of other websites and social platforms (hash tags were a big part of our guests research tool belt!) to check out local areas and attractions.
Here at Strathmore House Apartments, we have been a host on Airbnb for some time; making connections and using it as a platform to connect not only our guests with our apartments…but also our guests with and our beautiful city.
Airbnb experiences have been a great way for us to signpost and share local attractions with guests. What we love is that it’s not restricted to just guests who are booking through Airbnb. Anyone can use it! Even in your hometown. Search experiences in your city and uncover amazing trips and experiences on your doorstep. Many thank you may not even know about!
Airbnb experiences are one-of-a-kind activities. All designed and hosted by locals. So unlike a typical tour or workshop, these experiences really do go beyond the activities themselves and offer so much more. They take you on a deep-dive into the local host’s world through their passion for what they love but also their city.
Hosts offer their guests special knowledge, unique skills, and inside access to local places and communities that guests couldn’t find on their own.
They enable and empower guests to create lasting connections and treasured memories. What we think is so powerful t about Airbnb experiences is that they go beyond typical tours or classes; they immerse guests in a host’s unique world whilst soaking up the locality and beautiful vista.
From seaweed walks around the rock pools to Yoga, juicing and meditation classes. Or perhaps an introduction to natural dyeing or Gin schooling. There really is something for everyone to experience, to learn and to explore.
If you have booked with us and are looking forward to your Plymouth micro experience have a look at Airbnb experiences. See if there is something that tickles your fancy whilst exploring the beauty of Britain’s Ocean City.
