1) Homestay with Kazak family
Sayram Lake, renowned as a pearl of the Silk Road, is the largest alpine lake in Xinjiang.In Kazak, sayram means ‘blessing’.
In spring, the mountain slope is covered with a green blanket dotted with colored blooming flowers. I was lucky to escape from yurts cater for tourists, managed to find yurt paid only RM10 to stay with a Kazak family. A truly great experience
2) Houseboat @ Dal Lake, calm and beauty of Kashmir
I stayed in one of the house boats in Dal lake.These houseboats are made of wood, and usually have intricately and carved wood paneling. The houseboats come with different sizes. It has all the amenties of a house we had rooms with beds, sofas, TV and even a bath tub
NOTE: A houseboat stay is to be enjoyed by staying on the boat, and not like going sightseeing through the day and returning late at night for sleeping.
3)Train hostel in Siberia
Many travellers bypass Chita if they leave Russia via Irkutsk and Ulan Ude to travel on to Mongolia and China. However, Chita is still worth a look, a formerly-restricted military city.Chita is populated with communist concrete buildings. The apartment buildings are almost universally five stories tall and, frankly, not the most appealing things you’ve ever seen. There very limited budget hostels in Chita at present. Despite i have spent most of my time on the train thoughout my Trans-Siberia trip, however i could not find myself a good reason not to stay in Train hostel due to its unbeatable price(RM30 for a bed) and location (kiosk,restaurant footsteps away and of course the train). Literally staying in a train station means you have a very little chance to miss train as your train will just stop next to you room. How cool is it 😀
4) Live like an Amazonian
The Amazon rainforest, also known as Amazonia, or the Amazon jungle encompasses 7 million square kilometers, of which 5,5 million square kilometers are covered by the rainforest.The Amazon represents over half of the planet’s remaining rainforests, and it comprises the largest and most species-rich tract of tropical rainforest in the world.
A mind-blowing opportunity exists to visit and stay with a family living deep in the peruvian Amazon rainforest..well it was a good experience. The house has absolutely no facilities (running water,toilets,electricity,etc)
but jungle homestays give the chance to take walks to learn about the medicinal and herbs properties of the local plants, feast on hearty meals provided by hosts, learn how chicha is made, try your hand at the blow pipe, piranha fishing, spotting alligator and Amazonian dolphins, anaconda, monkeys, sloth, canoeing in rivers and riverbanks, listen to the sounds of the forest, bird watching………
5) Homestay with a lonely Russian Granny
Granny speaks no English and i speak no Russian. Whole “conversation” end up with Body langauge. Reason of staying with Granny , again witht the cheap price she had offered me only RM15 with a room for myself.
6) Touristy Ha long Bay with room on the boat
“Ha Long” is literally translated as “Bay of Descending Dragons.” Boat cruise become one of the most popular thing to do in Ha Long bay.
As most hotels do not run their own tours( in Hanoi), but serve as a proxy for tour companies, it will usually be cheaper to go to an actual tourist company location and deal with them directly.Prices are extremely variable depending on the quality of the boat, crew, food and additional activities. The cheaper the tour, the more basic the amenities.For about $50 you will get good backpacker standard of activities and accommodation
7) Flinstone house
A trip to Cappadocia, in central Turkey, gives you the chance for a unique lodging experience: staying in a cave.
Many hotels or hostels have restored stone-and-cave houses, equipped the rooms with comforts such as electricity, modern bathrooms, telephones, and even fast Internet connections, and named them as traditional Cappadocian inns.Panoramic views of the striking Göreme townscape,overlooks an enchanting landscape famous for its ‘fairy chimneys’surely gives you an unforgetable stay in Cappadocia
8) Reeds House
