Homestays in the countryside

In terms of the fast-paced development of the tourism industry, adjustments to meet current customer tastes have to be made. Therefore, a variety of hotels and luxurious accommodations were constructed to appeal to tourists. A type of accommodation known as “homestay” is ideal for you if you want to see Vietnam in the most authentic way possible and fully immerse yourself in the local culture while traveling away from the city’s flashy and packed high-rises. When visiting Vietnam, staying in homestays in the countryside gives you more real-life experiences than alternative accommodations like hotels or motels.

When traveling to Vietnam, it is recommended that you give it a try by staying in a homestay in the countryside. Homestays in the countryside offer a unique opportunity for travelers to experience the local culture, immerse themselves in rural life, and connect with the residents of a particular region.

What are “homestays”?

Homestay is a type of accommodation identified by the phrase “home from home”. In other words, you will reserve a room during your trip and stay in a local’s home, interacting with them like a part of their family.

During that trip, visitors will have interesting experiences and gain a new perspective that is closer to and more realistic about the culture and lives of the indigenous people. When traveling and staying at homestays, visitors also get closer to “being a native”, for example, by wearing the clothes of indigenous people and living according to their customs. Although, by living together, visitors also need to know how to respect the rules and privacy of the host.

Why should you choose to stay in homestays in the countryside?

  1. Location

Countryside homestays are often found outside of large towns and popular tourist destinations in rural areas. The calm and serene setting is one of the key benefits of rural homestays. No tall buildings, no pollution from different types of vehicles, no heavy traffic, no bustling noise of life in the city; the atmosphere in the countryside is far more peaceful and relaxed, as your perspective is endless paddies instead of tall buildings in the city. You may appreciate the beauty of nature, breathe in fresh air, and experience a slower pace of life away from the bustle and noise of city life.

  1. Local Hospitality

The hospitality that tourists can enjoy during their stay in a homestay is definitely the genuine attraction of a Vietnamese homestay. Vietnamese people are not only friendly and diligent, but they also treat their visitors with respect. Nothing makes your homestay host happier than seeing you relax, explore, eat well, and have a good time. We like to be welcoming, so don’t be shocked if we give you a complimentary footbath, a variety of fresh fruits, or a ride about town on a motorcycle.

You will get the opportunity to see local life firsthand while staying at the homestay. Find out how things are done in Vietnam by speaking with your host family.
