homestay holidays

Staying in small local hotels is a great way to get a feel for the culture you're visiting but if you really want to understand more about the daily lives of the local people, then there really is no substitute for spending a few days as a homestay guest.

Of course, this style of travel isn't for everyone... Conditions can be fairly basic - home is often a simple wooden construction with mats on the floor to sleep on, cold-water showers and definitely no air-conditioning... but if you're up for a little bit of an adventure and come with an open-mind, you'll soon find that the minor discomforts are far out-weighed by the benefits of this unique experience.

You'll also quickly discover that homestays are actually a two-way cultural exchange as your hosts are very likely to be as interested in your culture as you are in theirs... Don't forget to bring some pictures of home and prepared to arrive as a guest but to leave as a friend...

All the itineraries on the right include a homestay of at least one night's duration and in some cases, anything up to two weeks or more, but if you can't see what you're looking for, please do drop us a line or check back soon as we have several other homestay projects currently under investigation...
