Malaysia Homestay Program
Malaysia's friendly traditional communities have opened up their homes to
foreign guests so they can have a taste of the kampung or village lifestyle
to cherish for a lifetime. Experiencing a homestay in a traditional village

You will discover that things here move at a slightly slower pace than in
the city, and for those who relish the quiet calm of the rustic life, this
is possibly as good as it gets. Homestay guests will not just be immersed in
the lifestyle of the locals; they will also quickly establish a bond with
their warm and welcoming families who will treat them like family.
Visitors will experience the full spectrum of village life. Home-cooking
lessons and meal times will surely be a memorable part of your stay. The
wide variety and sumptuousness of painstakingly prepared dishes can
sometimes be enough to confuse most people! Guests will learn how to prepare
the food. This might include gathering, cooking and washing it as well.
The lucky few will also have the opportunity to harvest fruits that are in

memorable cultural experience, and the friendships of a family happy to
welcome you whenever you return to Malaysia!The amenities in Malaysian

These kampungs have been carefully selected and conform with strict
guidelines set by the Ministry of Tourism so as to bring out the best of

to be very different from anything you have experienced before. Malaysians

their hands, you are welcome to use cutlery if you do not know how to eat
with your hands gracefully. In Malaysia, men and women who are not related do not hug and kiss each other.
