How do you prepare for your next travel? For me, and many other travel lovers, one of the most important things is finding out what I really want to experience in the country I am going to. I search for fascinating places to visit in online travel guides and blogs. But how do we know if we chose the most remarkable ones?
I discovered, we can totally ease up this part of the trip! I found a platform where local people from 7 different Southeast Asian countries are excited to show us the most beautiful places in their home country. Who knows the hidden gems of a country better than the locals themselves? At With locals.com, you can book for example a tour in Malaysia, offered by a local host. This host will take you to his or her all-time favorite places around the area they know everything about. This way, you will see much more of a country than only the famous touristic sights.
Besides tours, you can also choose a home-cooked meal at a local family. Imagine a Vietnamese family preparing you a delicious traditional dish after a great day of discovering the country. If you are really lucky, they will even teach you how to cook this meal, so you can impress your friends back at home. Besides experiences in Vietnam, you can find many more offers in the other 6 countries with locals has launched it
You can even join the platform as a local host if you live in Thailand, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Indonesia, Nepal, or Malaysia and show the tourists the hidden gems of your country. As travelers, we do not need to wonder anymore which places to visit, the locals will tell us which attractions the most exciting.
