One website that is particularly helpful in ensuring travelers have the best experience possible is Airbnb, an online marketplace that connects users with local residents to locate and share accommodations.
In their latest video marketing campaign, they demonstrate how their services work by giving users a window seat view on an animated train as it makes its way around the globe. And anyone who has ever traveled by train knows that the coveted widow seat offers an unrivaled, up-close-and-personal view of the journey and all the pretty places along the way. Unsurprisingly, Airbnb offers many of the same benefits.
This is especially true in Korea, where Airbnb's verified accommodations include everything from enchanting hanoks to luxurious high rises, located in the center of Seoul all the way to the hidden corners of the countryside.
The website allows users to interact with local hosts by booking a room (an option that usually also involves good food and lots of laughs), or offers guests the choice of reserving the entire residence for a bit more privacy.
So, on your next trip to Korea (or anywhere, for that matter), don't settle for a characterless space to rest your head at night. Go on. Claim that window seat and let Airbnb make your stay a memorable one. Start by checking out the video below.
