Should you decide on a homestay, it is of utmost importance to understand the differences in standards of living between what many westerners are accustomed to. Houses are very clean, but small and rustic. While each house provides for all the basic needs, students should understand that many of the more modern amenities are likely not available. Students are guaranteed a private room but bathrooms might be shared with the entire family.
