Malaysia Homestay Experience

Homestay: Playing with kids

interact and experience village-style living first-hand

Homestay is an excellent way to make friends, learn about Malaysia’s multi – racial culture, and have a taste of the kampung or village lifestyle. It is fun, safe, and an affordable way to stay in Malaysia and you can interact and experience village-style living first-hand as well as the Malaysian culture. Live with the locals and eat with them; be a part of their family in a traditional village is perhaps one of the fastest and easiest ways to get to know the real Malaysia.

Situated away from the busy and hectic life of the city, you will be experience the unique yet peace-of-mind traditional lifestyle of Malaysia. For those who relish the quiet calm of the rustic life, this is possibly as good as it gets.

Homestay in a traditional kampung house

The rural living areas in Malaysia are called ‘kampungs’. In these kampungs, majority of the houses are built on stilts and amenities offer basic comfort, many have very huge and wide windows which make the houses airy and cool. Electricity and running water are available and the kampungs are well connected to big cities via modern highways and public transport.
