This was the highlight of our trip. We had booked this homestay with much hesitation wondering how it might turn out.
But, from the very first minute Wayan (the person who runs this unique homestay program) and his family made us feel home. They were helpful, friendly and treated us like their family. The homestay is like no other, giving authentic experiences of living with a Balinese family in their compound in the village. There are absolutely no tourists around!
We had great conversations about religion, culture, traditions, music and food. It was difficult leaving the family, but we are certainly going back sometime! Kudos to Wayan and his family for such a brilliant experience.
