For anyone who wants to visit Korea at a competitive price and also experience the family culture of Korea first hand, this is the perfect program. In a nutshell, this program provides Korean families who welcome foreign tourists for short/extended stay at their homes. Of course, each of these homes are carefully examined and certified by the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) to make sure the homestay owners can provide safe accommodations.
It is a great alternative to conventional ways of lodging such as hotels and motels. Prices range from 30 to 60 dollars per night. For more information and to make reservations, please visit www.koreastay.or.kr
If you are planning on taking advantage of this program within this year, we urge you to participate in the event we are currently holding. The event is currently taking place and it will end on December 27, 2013. The prizes vary from performance ticket vouchers to T-money card (about $20 dollars worth).
