Village Homestay

Dazhai and Paika, China

A Village Homestay is an opportunity to experience the hospitality of a local family and learn about village life, which many travelers find to be the highlight of their trip (hotel options are also available on these nights; please call for details). Your support staff includes your private guide and driver, both excellent traveling companions who can offer unique insights into village cultures. Our logistics van arrives in advance at the village to bring special futon-like mattresses with clean sheets for your sleeping area in the house. You will also be provided with your own wash basin. We supply a Western-style portable toilet seat as an alternative to the outhouse. Meals in the homes tend to be more simple than those served in restaurants but provide a chance to taste the cuisine of rural China.
