More Than an Accommodation: Combine Traditions & Adventures with Airbnb this CNY

This Chinese New Year, take it out of the four walls of your living room to meaningfully experience a city and pick up the most authentic traditions along the way!

While Lunar New Year (LNY) was once exclusively celebrated by staying at home with family, it’s interesting that Asian travellers are becoming increasingly passionate and conscious about combining family traditions with new and meaningful adventures in vibrant cities.

Japan and Korea have taken all 5 top spots for the most popular LNY destinations globally, with families opting for Osaka, Tokyo, Seoul, Kyoto and Busan more than any other cities. Meanwhile, City of Angels Los Angeles is the only city outside of Asia to nab a place in the Top 10.

Instead of fighting for the remote to pick a TV program that makes everyone happy, these top LNY destinations now allow families to meaningfully experience a new city beyond the four walls of their living room. Airbnb’s Experiences are handcrafted activities designed and led by local experts, suitable for everyone in the family. With over 500 Experiences in 12 cities worldwide, families now have access to the lesser-known authentic sights, flavors and sounds that make each destination unique.
