Internship Paling Cool Untuk Kaki Travel!

Wednesday, July 15, 2015 by Zura Ahmad
Ketika kunjungan ke rumah bestfriend di Utrecht, Netherlands Jun lepas. Bukan sahaja perkahwinan mereka unik dengan pertembungan budaya Moroccan dan Sicilian, rekaan layout rumah mereka juga unik. Website accomodation seperti Airbnb antara yang terkenal dengan tempat tinggal rare seperti ini. Yang bertudung tu bukan saya, tapi my travel partner-in-crime.

Kalaulah dapat travel free... kalaulah kerjaya memang untuk pegi travel je... bukan meeting client, bukan attend seminar, tapi ditugaskan untuk enjoying the place, the culture, the food... Ada ke jawatan macam ni?

Memanglah wujud! In fact, sekarang ni you all pun ada possibility untuk jadikan ia kenyataan bersama PandaBed! Tak percaya? Jom baca ni... Good luck!

PandaBed launches PeerMatch

In conjunction with launching #BestInternship2015, PandaBed has launched PeerMatch to empower Asian holiday goers to find trustworthy accommodations and like-minded homeowners that match their lifestyle needs.

More than providing travellers with a place to stay, PandaBed’s newly added PeerMatch technology uses an algorithm to do advanced profile matching between local hosts and guests, connecting Asian homeowners to travellers who share similar cultural and social interests. 

PeerMatch works by asking local hosts and travellers to fill in a one-minute questionaire to indicate and weigh the preferences they look for in a host or guest, such as gender, age, interests, profession, language spoken or dietary requirements. 

The PeerMatch algorithm then computes a matching score between the host and guest, with a higher score indicating a better match and a more pleasant hosting or staying experience. By taking into consideration the other party’s interests and preferences, PeerMatch also helps both host and guest to get a better understanding of each other before they meet.

“Asia is one of the most diverse regions in the world,” said Lester Kang, Co-Founder of PandaBed. “After talking to many customers, we have observed that Asians prefer to connect with people who share similar culture, mindsets and values. Therefore with PeerMatch, we hope to be able to enhance the homestay experience for both our hosts and guests, and provide more meaningful interactions and connections.” 

With over 10,000 listed accommodations across Asia in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, PandaBed aims to fuel the rapid growth of peer-to-peer home sharing by aligning it with Asian culture, values and insights.

Its been a while! The last two years UK trip sampai hari ni tak update habis. Along the way, I visited UK again and soon to London for solo travelling, Dubai dah twice, pusing satu Netherlands recently, I wish I could share satu-satu kat blog ni. Maybe I should now, perhaps Mr Travelling Beruang akan buatkan saya bersemangat nak berblogging lagi!

Apa itu Travelling Beruang? Satu kempen kebajikan yang menyalurkan dana kepada Tabung Travelling Beruang MAKNA apabila terjual setiap satu beruang comel ini pada harga RM65. Kalau nak tahu lagi kisah menyentuh hati mengenai Adik Mime, yang mula disahkan menghidap leukemia pada 2012, dan kini ia sudah di Tahap 4,dan apa pula kaitannya dengan pelakon lelaki kegilaan wanita gila drama Ungku Ismail Aziz dalam kempen ini, klik Semoga setiap perjalanan kita lebih bermanfaat, InsyaAllah...
