Planning for a Vietnam trip had me land on Withlocals that offers authentic experience for travelers through local hosts. Quickly I read through how booking a date would get me to share a meal with local hosts, and get to interact with people who are total strangers to me but definitely would be looking forward for my visit. Wouldn’t itf be nice if visitors, and tourist would get authentic local experience during their stay in the Philippines?

Some of the great secret escapes are as simple as knowing the back alleys to the market only a local would know.
