Tourists planning a budget trip to Hoi An should consider homstay accommodation. Inexpensive and cosy, a homestay will show you how locals really live, and give you a chance to immerse yourself in the culture.
Many tourists choose homestay accommodation as a way to approach Vietnamese culture, and there is no better way than living with a local family. Homestay guests are treated like a member of the host family. They may have to wake up early in the morning to help the host family prepare breakfast–usually mi quang (local-style noodles), cao lau(noodles with roasted pork) or steamed sticky rice, and may be asked to help out in the garden later. There they can learn how to identify the various herbs and vegetables used in Vietnamese cooking, and how to grow them. After breakfast, guests can accompany the host mother on a trip to the local market. At the market a myriad of colours and smells assault the senses, the host mother may show the guest how to choose the freshest produce and also how to bargain down the price. This is, after all, Viet Nam.
