Airbnb has revolutionized the way travelers find accommodations. Now the online short-term rental service wants to transform where and what the traveler does on vacation. CCTV America’s May Lee reports.

An eager crowd packed into the historic Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles for the unveiling of Airbnb’s newest service trips.

What started eight years ago as an online home sharing platform is now offering travelers an insider’s guide to places around the world and unique experiences.

For anywhere from $30 to more than $2,000, users can immerse themselves in a variety of interests led by expert hosts.

The new products are, of course, meant to increase Airbnb’s already explosive growth worldwide. It’s in 191 countries so far. The fastest growing market is China. It’s expanding three times faster than any other country, and it’s just getting started.
