Airbnb Has Introduced Online Experiences—Here Are the Best Ones

A few years back, Airbnb introduced Experiences on their site.


Along with booking a place to stay, you could also plan various activities around your location. It really made planning a trip even easier.


Now that no one is traveling, due to the coronavirus, Airbnb has pivoted into the online game. Recently, they launched Online Experiences, which are a ton of cool things you can do and see from the privacy of your own home.


We perused through them all to find the ones you should absolutely check out during your time in quarantine. See them all below!

1. Meet the Dogs of Chernobyl


We've thought about visiting Chornobyl, Ukraine simply to see the abandoned pups that still live there, so this virtual tour is right up our alley. Let's be honest, it's really for anyone who wants to interact with adorable dogs, and that constitutes just about everyone right now.


This hour-long experience will introduce you to the sweet puppers that roam the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, while also letting you feed them while you watch. Isn't that something?
