Since I started traveling more seriously in 2016, Airbnb has been one of my favorite ways to explore a new destination. Not only does a great Airbnb location feel more like home, but many hosts around the world have developed unique spaces with creative and stunning interiors that rival many a boutique hotel accommodation.
It’s not every day that you can stay in an eco bamboo home in the middle of Bali, an airship in the Scottish Highlands or a bubble dome underneath the stars in the UK. Need some inspiration for unusual experiences to add to your 2018 bucketlist? Here are my favorite unique Airbnbs worth traveling for in the next year.
