Airbnb has launched its new Trips platform in New Delhi, adding 15 local experiences in the Indian capital.
Launched in November 2016, Airbnb Trips offers visitors the chance to book activities and attractions recommended by Airbnb hosts in each city. This, according to Airbnb, allows visitors to “experience a different side of the city, immersing themselves in communities through the eyes of locals”.
“Trips is the most significant development in the history of Airbnb. We’re moving beyond just the home, bringing together where you stay, what you do and the people you meet all in one place,” said Brian Chesky, Airbnb’s co-founder, CEO & head of community.
“I’m excited to launch India Trips today as we’ve handpicked unique experiences, designed and led by locals, to reflect the diversity and variety of the city.”
Some of the initial experiences offered on the Trips platform in Delhi include the chance to visit celebrity fashion design workshop, to spend time with local musicians, and to learn from a professional photographer. These join the 800+ experiences now available with Airbnb Trips worldwide.
The launch of Airbnb Trips in Delhi follows the recent roll-out of the concept in Bangkok.
