Your friendly hosts will be happy to recommend activities on the grounds as well as in the area. One of the best parts of staying at homestays are the homestyle meals. Each evening, your host will serve platters of meat, noodles, and fried spring rolls, alongside piping hot bowls of soup.

There’s also a breakfast available, and younger travelers can order from a kid’s menu.
