They may not have the trappings of a hotel, but these accommodations are part of the adventure of exploring a country, and our travellers find these stay a highlight of their trip. Aside from being more interesting places to stay than bland hotels, they also help to keep costs down, and by supporting local businesses you help the local economy. In short, our trips do not go for international five-star hotels but they serve up five-star experiences instead.
