Village Homestay in Bangladesh
$181 per person
Experience genuine Bangladeshi warmth and hospitality
Village Homestay in Bangladesh is more than just a vacation; it is an opportunity to learn about the local culture and way of life. Imagine living in a traditional house in the countryside while enjoying a laid-back lifestyle and plenty of fresh air. Unlike an ordinary holiday, the homestay excursion whisks visitors off to an oasis of tranquillity and rustic charm.
More than eighty per cent of Bangladesh’s population lives in rural areas. Therefore, the Bangladeshi homestay is unique and offers profound insight and a rare opportunity to explore the rural community’s authentic charms in a traditional setting. Your accommodation will be in a traditional farming village with a local family. The family that participates in the homestay programme are carefully selected and comply with the strict guidelines set by our organization. Savour local hospitality and participate in delightful activities that have been lined up – harvesting or planting crops, fishing, swimming in the river, visiting local schools, cycling/ boating around the villages, visiting local bazars and playing traditional games.
Village homestay can also be incorporated with any other trips in different regions of Bangladesh. Some homestays are tucked away in the hinterland, while others are in the neighbourhood of major towns and easily accessible. For instance, the Narsingdi and Narayangonj homestay villages are only about an hour or two drive from the capital city of Dhaka.
Every homestay village presents a different and remarkable experience. Visitors to Narsingdi and Narayangonj can have delightful experiences of beautiful landscapes, diverse agriculture and farmer’s life, famous textiles, local crafts and savouring tropical fruits and fresh vegetables dishes besides fish and meat items. During a stay at Narsingdi and Narayangonj, visitors can make a day trip to the first capital of Bengal in Sonargaon and Panam Nagar, along with a boat trip on the Meghna river.
There are always many things to do or learn in the homestay village. The Villagers will eagerly invite you to join in their daily activities, and you will soon feel that the enthusiasm is infectious! Harvesting local crops, visiting fish farms or learning how to make traditional delicacies are only a splash of the many things that await your arrival. Brush up on your Bangla language with the children or indulge in traditional pastimes such as kite-flying and top spinning. Local cottage industries and weavings are other enjoyable pursuits of the area. Folk music is famous and spread all over Bangladesh; evening cultural music performances can be arranged to entertain visitors.
A homestay program is suitable for all types of visitors, be it families, students or senior citizens. The simplicity of rural village life and the engaging pastimes that are found here will create a unique and memorable excursion. Experience genuine Bangladeshi warmth and let the homespun hospitality work its charm!
