Online Experiences

Travel is at an all time low at the moment, so Airbnb is getting creative. Taking advantage of its worldwide network, the app has come up with an “Online Experiences” channel. On this platform, locals from different countries share their cities, customs, and traditions. Favorite “experiences” include a Zoom visit with the dogs of haunted Chernobyl, a Tango Concert with a Grammy nominee from Argentina (just $10), and, for those interested in the mechanisms behind pandemics, a trip through Prague with a plague doctor. —E.C.
