The True Concept of Homestay
“I still do the same job in the plantation, and offer the same locally grown food instead of following the menu of those commercial cuisines. I candidly tell the guests that we will do our best, but in addition I also tell them that they are not the tourists, whom I need to serve in exchange of money, but they are the guests, whom I need to serve like a guest in my culture. I am not worried even if no guests come because it was my house and it is still my house, and I don’t have any overhead expenses like hotel owners” — says Mr. Sotang wearing a chastened smile on his face.
