According to the latest trend the most popular form of hospitality is “Home Stay Tourism”. The main objective of this type of special interest tourism is based on experiential tourism module. A family that hosts a non-family member for a time period is the main theme. In this model travelers share a residence of local family of that destination.
Major families add great value to the vacation by going that extra mile. Some home stay owners are professionals on bird-watching, wildlife, trekking, some others are great cooks and conduct live cooking sessions for guests on request. Actually hosts are a treasure trove of the history and culture of that particular location and take immense pride in sharing stories of their home state and culture.
The conditions & terms of these homestays are generally worked out by the host him/herself and the guest in advance and can include items such as the type of inland transport, lodging, food requirement, and facilities regarding the sightseeing spots.
As this is an experiential model, in major cases homestays offer several advantages such as exposure to everyday life in a different location, opportunities for cultural diplomacy, friendship, intercultural competence, and foreign language practice, local advice, and a lower carbon footprint compared to other types of tourism concepts.
