Family Stay

 

Uzbekistan homestays offer a unique environment to immerse yourself in Uzbek culture and languages. Homestay accommodation enables you to take time out and relax in a family environment with a home stay family. Typical homestays provide meals, accommodation and many hosts will entertain you during your stay.
A homestay would best fit an individual or perhaps a couple – occasionally a family. If you prefer to get to know the locals, this maybe the option for you.
