The hallmarks of Airbnb are cozy rooms and unique lodging experiences around the world. When you are visiting a specific location, you can also book an in-person experience through their platform. Think walking tours and culinary classes. It’s a fabulous way to get to know a region by learning from a local. 

Recently, Airbnb launched virtual sessions, where you can discover new things via people living in other parts of the globe from the comfort of your home. Booking an online class is simple. Peruse the sessions, pick a date and time, and shop for ingredients (or sit and watch, either is acceptable). Next, join via Zoom a few minutes before your session starts.


You can participate in Airbnb’s online experiences solo or coordinate with family and friends in other cities to do a session together. If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, take a peek at a few of the global culinary experiences you can have from your home.

Get ready to tour the world and sample flavors while learning a new recipe or two.
