Fancy learning the skills of the Muaythai boxing, creating your own Lanna Lantern or tasting the flavours of real southern Thai food? The Dutch start-up Withlocals offers a marketplace where travelers can book local experiences directly with locals, in three categories - Eat, Tours, and Activities.
By booking an experience with locals, you will get to see a city in a completely new light. Be ready to explore the side-streets and visit attractions off the beaten track! The locals can earn a fair price for something they do daily, and the tourists get to experience the real culture of a country. By removing the intermediary travel agencies, more jobs for a honest price will be created for the local population.
The most special is the Eat category, offering the opportunity to have a real cooked home dinner with locals. Would you like to taste the flavors of Gai’s secret recipe? At this moment, more than 10.000 local hosts in Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia and Sri Lanka have registered at Withlocals. The home dinners vary from picking your own veggies in a farmer’s garden to having dinner at a celebrity chef’s home or in the midst of a working class family. Whatever you are in for, you will be able to find it at Withlocals!
Does this new out-of-the-box experience sound like fun to you? Then check out the website since the hosts are waiting to welcome you!
