Homestay Tours India
There are places where they are known as bed & breakfast, but in India, we just cannot think of another way to describe this apart from a “Home Stay”. Staying with Indian hosts is a unique way of getting closer to the psyche of the people and its culture. These are a group of people who just love looking after visitors and are proud of their hospitality and traditions. The selection is wide and covers Delhi, Jaipur, quaint hill stations in Uttrakhand and Himachal, most parts of Kerala and Coorg, in Karnataka. Some of them are really “special places” to say and at times the hosts may not be present on site but that does not diminish the value of your stay a bit…
Homestay in India are gaining more and more popularity day by day. It is a relatively new concept introduced in the state. People are now opening up their houses to welcome the domestic as well as tourists who visit their city. Different people offer different facilities in their homes. Some provide only accommodation, while others offer the facilities of meals, cultural evening etc.
Homestay in India is an excellent option even from security point of view. Even for a female traveler, home stays are a better option than any other form of lodging. Another positive feature of home stays is that you get personalized treatment from the family you are residing with and get to see the real Rajasthan. You can find the tariff ranging from the lowest to that matching with the hotels. Home stays in Rajasthan are meant to suit everyone's needs and pockets. So, next time you visit Rajasthan, try to stay at these homes and get a taste of the real state.
Here are some Benefits of Homestay
1.Distinctive and Characterful Accommodations
There's no better way to experience the incredibly diversity and charm of India than at a homestay. The options are almost endless and include plantation bungalows, historic havelis (mansions), and remote rural cottages.
In contrast to a hotel, a homestay usually only has a few rooms. The family who resides there runs it, and acts as host. This guarantees that guests receive plenty of individual attention. You can spend as little or as much time with the host family as you like. Some guests choose only to dine with them, while others spend hours chatting to them. Regardless, staying with an Indian family is the easiest way of finding out about Indian culture and way of life. Many guests and hosts find that they bond with each other so much, that they keep in touch long after the vacation is over.
The wealth of information that the hosts have about their local area makes deciding what to see and do a breeze. Such local knowledge is extremely helpful in getting the most from your visit. Many hosts are delighted to show their guests around their local area, providing them with invaluable insights that simply aren't available from a guide book.
4.Home Cooked Food
There's a huge difference between the Indian food served in restaurants and hotels, and the food that's cooked in an Indian home. By staying at a homestay, you'll be able to taste authentic Indian home cooked food, made to order. It's a lot lighter, and has more variation and flavor than restaurant food. Some homestays even welcome their guests into their kitchen, and let them watch and participate in the cooking process.
As a guest at a homestay, the focus is on you, and your likes and preferences. The hosts are usually very accommodating and will put a great deal of effort into arranging activities that are of interest to you. These activities will vary depending on location. Exploring a coffee plantation in Coorg, watching a polo match in Rajasthan, herding animals in remote northern India, village visits, picnics, and temple tours are just some of the options. Guests are often invited to attend weddings, or other festivals that are happening, as well.
