Brits can find their perfect micro holiday home with Airbnb after the firm revealed their best spots.
As more people move to cities for new careers, space is limited in some of the world’s most popular tourist hotspots and that makes hosting services of companies such as Airbnb even more desirable.
With homes in destinations from Portland to Paris, Airbnb provides Brits with plenty of opportunities to experience the world’s best cities and their list of eight best micro-homes provides plenty of travel inspiration.
