I'm currently researching for my SE Asia trip next year. Reading through the Lonely Planet SE Asia on a shoestring book and I'm liking the idea of getting involved in a homestay within each country just so I can fully immerse myself in the culture.

The first homestay recommendation I have come across in the book is no more I've had a Google but am reluctant to go with anything that I've not had recommended.

So if anyone can recommend any homestay throughout SE Asia let me know.

Thanks in advance

Do Yok, a Tampuan highlander up in Ratanakiri province, can arrange homestays in the villages outside Ban Lung. Here is a link to his web site. If you trek in Virachey National Park you'll spend at least one night in the highlander villages north of the Sesan River. It's damn good fun.

Hello again,

I can only offer the same advice as I gave on Lonely Planet a moth ago

rana homestay and obt (at obt you can do some volunteering if you want to) have good reputation, what I heard from other travellers. Both are at Kampong cham province. As already mentioned there are some minority homestays near Banlung and in Ratanakiri province

I can really recommend the Meas Family homestay, south of Phnom Penh:

Had a wonderful stay there last year and going back for longer this December.
It's in the countryside, well away from tourist areas. Wonderful hosts and peaceful location.
Also, the opportunity to get involved with local children in the daily activities organised there.
