Local culture immersion

These activities are for those who want to deeply engage into local life and truly be part of the local culture. Sharing life with the people and doing things the way they do, whether it is hard farm work or a sophisticated handicraft skill, through them you will realise the way local people think and the values they respect. Being a local even just for a day is an eye- opening and rewarding experience and this is what travel is really meant to be.
