 Hotel & Home stay Back to Top


Our tour prices are based on Standard hotel class (3-star or 4 star hotel). These hotels are selected for their quality service and good location. Please let us know if you prefer Superior (4 star hotel) or Deluxe (5 star hotel) hotel class.

Visit our www.activetravelshop.com for the hotel information in details.


Homestay is one of the best ways to get a true experience of the area we travel to. With homestay you would visit real people and stay overnight in their own homes.

Homestay in villages is simple in term of bedding and bathroom. We would stay overnight in traditional house of the Thai, Tay or H’mong ethnic minorities and, as the locals do, we would sleep on bamboo floor (homes of the Tay and Thai) or in bed (homes of the H’mong and others). To make you sleep comfortable we provide you with mattress, clean sheet, pillows and mosquito nets.

Bathroom is usually western style but in some villages (very rare) you would experience true local bathroom style.

Dinner is usually cooked by the owners of the homestay.
