HCM CITY — Travelmob, an online marketplace where property owners in the Asia Pacific region can list spaces for visitors for short-term stays, announced the launch of its Vietnamese site (vn.travelmob.com) on Tuesday.
Founded jointly by Turochas Fuad, ex managing director of Skype Asia Pacific and Prashant Kirtane, formerly head of engineering at Yahoo! India, the company's vision is to enable travellers around the world experience Asia like a local.
Property owners can list as many properties as they like for free on travelmob and a service fee is collected only when an actual booking is made.
"Renting out your spare room or apartment to foreign guests visiting the country is a great way to help boost local tourism and meet new people from all around the world, it said.—VNS
