3 nights 4 Days
Stay with a local family in the village of Quynh Ngoc in Vietnam and learn about the rural lifestyle. During your stay you’ll get to do activities, such as:
-Cooking and eating together with your host family
-Practicing the livelihood of the family
-Shopping trip to the local market
-Visiting the local Buddhist temple
-Swimming trip to the beach nearby
The village experience is especially socially sustainable because the locals benefit directly from the travellers’s stays. The locals are also free to choose themselves what part of their culture they show to the travellers, instead of having a readymade touristic program to follow. Finally, no special tourism infrastructure is built in the village and the food and water consumption is only according to the locals’ needs. To maintain the carrying capacity of the village, only individual travellers can visit the area at once and no groups are accepted.
-Bed in a local home, bed sheets included – please notice that in this village private room is not necessarily available as houses are traditionally build as lofts
-Home made breakfast, lunch and dinner daily
