Airbnb launches all-inclusive 80-day round the world trip
Airbnb has revolutionized the hotel industry, empowering guests and homeowners alike.
Now the company has launched an all-inclusive 80-day around the world trip. Perfect for anyone looking to fulfill their traveling bucket list, and best of all, it costs just $4,805 (£3,817) per person.
Airbnb even has a property on the Great Wall of China:
To put how good a deal this is into context, that equates to just $63 (£50) a day.
Countries on this once-in-a-lifetime trip include Egypt, Ethiopia, and Kenya; Bhutan, Thailand, and China; New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Chile, and Ecuador.
"Circumnavigate the globe during this 12-week trip," the Airbnb Adventures ad reads. "You'll explore the culture and traditions of medieval Europe, the former Soviet Union, eastern Africa, the Middle East, northern and southern Asia, the South Pacific, the Americas, and a Nordic island. Yes, you read that right."
"Just like the famous French novel by Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days, this travel tale starts and ends in London. But unlike the book's protagonist, the only thing you have to wager is missing out on the trip of a lifetime," the ad continues.
"All you have to do is make sure you have enough empty pages in your passport, buy a round trip ticket to and from London, and get on that first flight. When you land, the first chapter of your around the world adventure begins.
"This trip departs on September 1 and returns on November 19."
The trip will span six continents, and, as you'd expect from Airbnb, you will be staying in a variety of weird and wonderful abodes including hotels, eco-lodges, campsites, boats, trains.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to empty my savings and request an extended leave of absence from my job.
