Koreastay - A New Way to Enjoy Your Stay in Korea in a Home

Some people enjoy all the comforts of a 5 star hotel when they travel on holidays. Some prefer to to enjoy the outdoors and camp in tents. However, for those travelling to Korea wanting to get a first-hand experience of Korean life and culture there is  a different form of accommodation available, and that is to enjoy a home-stay with a Korean family.  

'Koreastay' is a home-stay program certified by Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) which offers international visitors to Korea a special opportunity to experience life with a Korean family. 'Koreastay' host families are carefully selected after undergoing strict assessment of such criteria as residential environment, guestroom and house cleanliness, service and convenience.

A home-stay experience allows visitors the chance to experience the authentic Korean way of life including Korean family meals and various traditional customs and cultural activities like family traditions and Korean games etc.

'Koreastay' is a great way to start your trip to Korea while immersing yourself in Korean life and culture.  Most host families are located in major cities, close to tourist areas and provide some home cooked meals and various travel information.

Starting from US$30 per night rates vary depending on host and location.  By visiting the 'Koreastay' webpage on the official KTO website http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/koreastay you can search information on home-stay accommodation by city or region and the suitability of accommodation, reviews and much more.

A persons next visit to Korea can be a real cultural experience rather than staying in a hotel.  People will be surprised what they can discover by staying at home with a Korean family and how much more fulfilling the visit to Korea can be.
