Homestay are often associated with backpack traveling and trekking tours in particular, but it doesn’t have to be that way. As the modern day traveler yearns for more from their experiences, traveling is no longer a brief walk through local markets, it is a cultural exchange where the visitor gains knowledge and interacts with a host. From this a new kind of homestay has evolved. These remain loyal to the concept of interaction with local people and communities – but with a much higher level of service, especially where accommodation is concerned.
Destination Asia Thailand is now offering a new style deluxe homestay experience in the provinces of Tak and Khon Kaen (North and East Thailand respectively). Here guests can enjoy finer comforts while still gaining an authentic homestay experience.
