“Airbnb travelers are checking in to neighbourhoods in all corners of the globe and in doing so they are visiting local coffee shops and small businesses that haven’t benefitted from tourism in the past,” said Chip Conley, Head of Hospitality, Airbnb.
He added, “When an Airbnb traveler heads to Hammerbrook in Hamburg or Brickfields in Kuala Lumpur, with the help of hosts, they are able to see these places through the eyes of a local, and embrace the culture in a completely new way.
