Coinciding with the Raya season and following the successful launch of Online Experiences globally, Airbnb welcomes a collaboration with local Malaysian artist and creative entrepreneur, Marini Ramlan (also known as Nini Marini), to launch the first-ever Airbnb Online Experience based out of Malaysia.
First Malaysia-based Online Experience You Can’t Miss Out
A popular figure in Malaysia’s arts scene, Nini Marini has created artworks in a variety of mediums, including ceramics, textiles, metals and even artificial intelligence. Her abstract yet decorative style is bold, accessible and imaginative, and has led to her working with Malaysian designers and global brands alike. In the spirit of Hari Raya festivities, Nini is now sharing her vibrant aesthetic through her Online Experience, which will take place twice a week starting 10th June, where she will be teaching guests how to weave using t-shirts!
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to connect with a global community and celebrate my love for the arts by hosting the first Malaysia-based Online Experience,” said Nini. “T-shirt weaving is a fun, simple and creative activity that anyone can take part in, and with all of us celebrating Raya differently this year I truly believe this is a great way for families and friends to spend time together virtually. I’m also hopeful that this will inspire more Malaysians to start hosting their own Online Experiences and sharing their own passions with the rest of the world.”
“We are thrilled to open up more ways for people to travel the world as they shelter in place. While this year’s Raya holidays may look very different, we hope that Airbnb Online Experiences will help bring families together virtually even if they’re physically far apart,” said Parin Mehta, Director (Asia-Pacific), Airbnb Experiences. “Human connection is at the core of Airbnb Experiences, and the launch of Online Experiences has helped provide an opportunity for our hosts to connect with our global community of guests in the only way possible right now, online.”
Looking for more family-oriented activities to enjoy during your Raya break? There are over 50 Airbnb Online Experiences available led by hosts around the world. Prepare a festive meal by learning how to cook Cape Malay curry or authentic Morroccan dishes, and round it off with some sweet treats such as Japanese mochi and Italian tiramisu.
