Village Rents Itself Out On Airbnb To Survive The Flood Season [Pics]
The Banana Republic in Jakarta, Indonesia is taking bookings to raise money and awareness.
In Jakarta, Indonesia there is a small village that is currently taking bookings on Airbnb to raise money and awareness around its flooding problems.
The village is known as Banana Republic and is located in the middle of a banana plantation. During the rainy season the heavy rains cause the nearby river to overflow and the village gets flooded. The folks in the village run a small recycling business, but they need more money to help with de-clogging the river and building better roofs to keep the villagers dry during flood season.
