Chinese homestay provider Sweetome has launched a travel guide that provides tips for tourists to travel as locals.
The guide is available on the company's app and will be updated as the seasons change.
All the ideas for the guide will come from Sweetome's local employees, including housekeepers and cleaning and cooking ladies from across the country, according to Luo Jun, the co-founder of Sweetome.
Tourists would be awarded free accommodation if they contribute novel ideas via the app, which also offers wifi connections, an way to lease equipment, e-invoices and room service.
The company manages idle properties and offers homestay, apartment and villa experiences for travelers.
The number of properties run by Sweetome crossed 50,000, the company said on May 29.
The company has enabled 30 million tourist stays over the past eight years.
