Why Is Homestay in Vietnam An Excellent Choice for Adventure Holidays?
Any tourists coming to Vietnam, especially those who love adventure and discovering the country on the back of a motorbike, set accommodation as the top priority. While booking a tour, many travelers asked us – BM Travel Adventure about where they should stay, a hotel or a homestay.
They are all afraid homestay in Vietnam has low-grade amenities or fastidious hosts. They have not yet been aware of how great a homestay experience can bring. However, thanks to our zealous consultancy, they turned out to be excited and chose a homestay rather than a hotel when taking a tour.
To help you understand homestay in Vietnam, BM Travel Adventure has decided to write this article to share the most useful things so that you can pick the right accommodation for your trips to Vietnam.
Where to stay in Vietnam? A hotel or a homestay
A hotel is more service-oriented accommodation with many offered services such as Spa, Gym, Massage, Club, Restaurants, and many more. Everything is very comfy and convenient with basic services like laundry and room service. The hotels often stand downtown; therefore, it will be more difficult for you to communicate or socialize with the locals and learn about their daily life.
Meanwhile, homestay is a green type of travel, perfect for tourists who are fond of uncovering the culture in the new lands. Taking overnight in a homestay, you will have time to go native and talk with the indigenous people and even have meals together like a family. Therefore, you can be easily close to the land’s lifestyle and culture.
You are free to use any items and utensils in the homestay. Even in high-class ones, you can serve your needs without support.
Homestay in Vietnam is one of the most interesting travel experiences that not only brings you happy moments but also gives you a chance to enrich your communication skills and knowledge of different cultures worldwide.

The experiences that you can find only in homestays in Vietnam
Cozy and homelike atmosphere
We are sure you will feel cozy with the warm home decor, and the homelike atmosphere remained by the hosts and members living in.
Most homestays come full of facilities, including a kitchenette and living room, where a family can cook together or enjoy the living space.
As for modern, dynamic, and adventurous youngsters who travel solo or in groups, pick a smaller homestay. Each homestay is a different small house. Despite not being as luxurious as a hotel or a resort, each has its unique beauty.
Understanding the local cultures
Taking a homestay in Vietnam as your accommodation, you can join the host’s daily activities, such as going to the market, having conversations, and cooking. Try your hand at living a simple, close life as the inhabitants. Homestay has grown popular among adventure lovers. Its purpose is to bring you a space that feels like home and a peaceful place to stay over during your Vietnam trip.
It seems an opportunity to get closer to the local cuisine and culture. The villagers are always willing to tell you social stories, traditional customs, and habits.
