Celebrate Airbnb’s 10th birthday with these five unique local Home listings
Since Airbnb’s early beginnings in 2008, the host community has been providing unparalleled ways to explore new destinations. Airbnb hosts do not only help their guests feel a sense of belonging but many around the world have created unique spaces that are as exciting to discover as the destinations.
In celebration of Airbnb’s 10 years of inspiring the global travel community with magical end-to-end trips, Airbnb unveils five unique local Airbnb Homes listings in Malaysia that have been “wish listed” by several travellers:
Mendung Escape Private Bedroom (Bau, Sarawak)
Best for couples or even a little “alone-time”, enjoy a retreat to nature where you can also go on a hike. This beautiful listing in Borneo is perfect for you to relax and escape the city’s hustle and bustle. But nothing great comes easily, you will have to hike 700 meters up to earn your perfect escape.
