anyone wants to be my host family pls let me know, it will be my first visiting to China and Nepal this July, i heard from my schoolmate it is quite common in current China to stay with a host family, because a lots of chinese want to practice their english with the family guest, and they are open mind already, for the guest, they can have cheaper rate compare to the hotel.
leave me a msg if you want to host me, TQ!
yeah, stay with a local family will be a good idea, especially in China, i was travelling to China three times, i had visited to beijin, shanghai, xian, dali, suzhou, huangshan, hongkong, hefei, nanjin, and some others, i strongly recommend you to visit suzhou and hangzhou, you will never be disappointed, trust me!
yeah, i can also recommend you some host families, pls contact me, or you can visit a website: http://www.tophomestay.org , their orginazation had lots of host families all around China, good luck, jojo!
Jojochong, I am also going to Nepal in the summer and I am considering doing a similar thing...when I went to Japan a few months ago I found someone willing to let me stay with them through the website www.hospitalityclub.com which turned out really well...I was in contact with the family for a few months before hand and they arranged to meet me and take me to stay with them, it was great to have a Japanese speaking guide and they introduced me to lots of yummy food!
sorry i got the web address wrong....its www.hospitalityclub.org hope this helps!
