Be aware that when booking through Airbnb they have a form of smart pricing, for example if you book from Australia for accomadation in Malacca it will be 30% more expensive than the same room booked on Airbnb from Singapore. I was able to find this out when I had a friemd in Singapore looking at the same accomadation at the same time.
This form of pricing is not new. Taxi drivers have long employed similar pricing based on whether they think you know the local price, and judging your ability to afford a premium.
My vehicle of choice for a Taxi is Grab and for accomadation I am seeking a alternative to Airbnb.
