Airbnb and Spotify are calling all Thais to find their travel vibe this summer, with a first-ever mash-up promoting the hottest stays and songs for a wellness getaway.
From now until the end of April, Airbnb will be taking over Spotify’s popular “เหนื่อยนักพักก่อน” (Let’s Get Some Rest) playlist. In a fresh twist, both global platforms have curated and added travel-inspired songs to the playlist by popular Thai artists.
Inspired by the playlist, Airbnb has also dropped a wellness inspired ‘Sawasdee Songkran’ Wishlist, featuring a collection of unique Thai homes perfect for a restful and rejuvenative getaway to tune into the best of Thai hits.
From beachfront and mountain retreats, to treehouses, glamping tents and designer villas, Airbnb guests can make their stay a sweet-sounding one to remember with Spotify’s latest Premium Mini offer, where new Premium listeners can enjoy one week of bite-sized non-stop streaming, ad-free music for just THB2 right from their mobile device.
“With Songkran just around the corner and travel searches for stays this festive season surging over 310%, we’re excited to collaborate with Spotify to encourage Thais to “Tiew Thai”. Travel and music come hand in hand, and we hope that this unique collaboration inspires Thais to take some time for a restful getaway this summer, by immersing themselves in the best of wellness-focussed stays and music,” said Amanpreet Bajaj, Airbnb’s General Manager for Southeast Asia, India, Hong Kong and Taiwan
.“We are excited to work with Airbnb to bring audio-inspired travel to life. Seeing that 70% of global youths believe audio is healing and a way to reduce stress levels, our collaboration will not only inspire Thais to relax and rejuvenate during the New Year holidays, but also celebrate local culture and its people – from Airbnb Hosts to our Spotify RADAR and EQUAL artists. Spotify is passionate about helping artists be discovered by their fans anywhere in the world.” said Kossy Ng, Head of Music, Asia, Spotify
