In March 2013 we were lucky enough to be part of the first homestay in the Sapan Tao community. The program was amazing, a true insight into local life. We learned about rubber tapping, collected local vegetables by the river and learned how to transform them in local dishes and desserts. The highlight however was the warm heart of our hosts and the people we met during the stay. We went swimming in the river and enjoyed a full afternoon canoeing with our host family.
