When staying in a homestay, you not only get to visit a destination, you get to really live like the locals too! You are either accommodated in the family home, or in separate quarters nearby.
Like they say, when in Rome do as the Romans do…
Staying in a homestay allows you to experience the culture and lifestyle of the local people – from their working life to the things they do for fun.
The Sabah Homestay Programme is a relatively new tourism product, but has already shown enormous potential. You can find homestays in almost every district in Sabah.
Most homestays nowadays provide their guests with just as much comfort as a reputable hotel.
With school holidays around the corner, some family’s mission is usually to go to the highlands where the air is cold and the scenery is green. Yes, we are talking about Kundasang!
Located in the district of Ranau, Kundasang is an ideal getaway for the whole family, from the hustle and bustle of city life. Chill with Mother Nature, pluck some strawberries, feed some cows, learn local history, stargaze… So syiok!
During peak periods like school holidays, public holidays or even weekend, it is highly advisable for you to pre-book your accommodation in Kundasang be it a homestay or a hotel.
Both hotels and homestays are great. What you choose will be up to you and it will depend on your needs. If you would rather have a cleaning service and room service, then a hotel might be a best fit.
