This is a sponsored post for Airbnb, a community marketplace to list and book accommodations
You need a break from the sweltering heat of the Shanghai summer and, in the meantime, hundreds of tourists are clamoring into the city to coo at its bright lights & revamped history. Turn it into a win-win: take a vacation to lands of un-VPNed internet while letting someone stay in your roomy French Concession loft!
It’s possible with Airbnb, the community marketplace where people can list, discover and book unique accommodations. People post their extra spaces, hosting worldly guests in spare rooms, apartments, even islands!
Whichever flavor you choose, you always control who stays in your place by screening guests with Airbnb’s built-in profiles, messaging, reviews and 24-hour customer support. It works! Over 100,000 people in 14,000 cities in 183 countries are now making money, meeting travelers and funding their own escapes to other carefully vetted Airbnbers.
For designer Candace Campos, renting out her Hong Kong loft means being able to work and jet set internationally: “Airbnb funds my travel. I’ll rent out my place and go work from London for a week or two, and people LOVE staying like a local at my place.”
