With Malaysian homestay programme, operators provide tourist the experience of life in a kampung or traditional village. The kampungs involved in the homestay programme are committed to ensure that visitors experience village-style living first hand. All kampungs taking part in the homestay programme are carefully selected and comply with strict guidelines from the Ministry of Tourism in order to bring out the best of Malaysia.
The activities the tourist engages in are all authentically Malaysian, including preparation of food using traditional methods, going to the orchard to harvest fruits or feeding livestock in the farm. Spend time with the host’s children after they return from school and indulge in games that are still popular in kampungs, like kite flying, top spinning and congkak.
Alternatively, one can explore the natural surroundings. In the evening, join cultural dances, musical performances or even a mock wedding. Service providers are taken through the certification process by Tourism Malaysia, preserving the experience of traditional Malaysian charm ensuring the spirit of Malaysian hospitality is kept alive.
