Program Details

You’ll also meet other locals, taste home-cooked meals, and have an authentic experience of Vietnam. You may have the chance to tag along to social events, automatically belong to a social circle, and have a personalized local tour guide to tourist attractions as well as to places where locals go. Normally, staying with host families is much cheaper than fending for yourself in your own apartment, especially if the arrangement includes meals, laundry facilities, weekly cleaning, and potential weekend excursions.

Activities & Shift

After experiencing homestay in Vietnam, you will be open to different perspectives, learn new practical skills, and have experience adjusting to foreign living situations. You will also have no problem moving out for good and trying to settle down in any other places someday. After partaking in weekend gardening sessions and picking up local recipes with us, you will be a more independent individual and it will surely be an experience worth remembering.
