Welcome to China Homestays!
Chinahomestays.com is a FREE SERVICE provided by The Hummingfish Foundation, a Hong Kong registered charitable organization!
Chinahomestays.com is designed to connect travelers with Chinese families interested in inviting guests into their homes and being a part of China’s fast growing tourism market.
During a recent trip to northern Yunnan province in China, Daniel J. Groshong, the founder of The Hummingfish Foundation had the most lovely time staying in the home of an local family. It was a modest home for sure, but the family was so kind and generous to him every moment. They cooked for him, made him Yak milk tea, sent one of the young men to guide him on a hike up the mountain behind their house and invited him to join them for a horse riding festival.
Seeing the amount of money that is being made with mass tourism in China, some of the local people of China are tempted to tear down there traditional homes to build what they think the mass tourists wants to see. In the process, losing their cultural and traditional ways of life forever.
This Chinamomestay.com website allows visitors to easily find a homestay near them, comment on their homestay experience and suggest homestays that they have enjoyed.
On the other side of the coin, The Hummingfish Foundation offers support to homestay families to prepare them for having guests in their homes, better enhancing the visitor’s experience. (www.hummingfish.org)
