Hospitality organisations

Has anyone had any experience with hospitalty clubs? Any suggestions for deepening the cultural ties and getting to know the locals better? Traveling o/s and hanging out with other backpackers seems a little pointless (no offence intended). Obviously local language skills help, but any other ideas?

Kind Regards

All I can think of off the top of my head is homestays -- I think the TAT has some kind of list, but from personal experience they can be very hit and miss...

Here is a link to a story written by Sam about a homestay she did just outside Bangkok that she thought was very good. Admitedly is was a few years ago, but I believe the homestay is still running.
