Homestay

One of the best ways of learning about a new culture and practicing a foreign language is to have a homestay. Living with a family in Kunming is a fantastic way of learning about family life in China and having daily opportunities to practice the Chinese language skills you develop in Minds Abroad’s classrooms. Additionally, having a homestay gives you the opportunity to eat delicious home cooked meals every day. Minds Abroad prescreens all homestay families to make sure they can offer you both a comfortable environment to live and a fantastic experience as an adopted member of their family. 

Price: $99/week (from August 15th to May 14th) and $199 (from May 15th to August 14th)

Apartment and Homestay Location

We have carefully selected accommodations for students and volunteers. The apartments and homestays are located within a short distance from our office. You will have convenience stores and supermarkets like Walmart nearby for anything that you need. Additionally, there are also amenities like urban parks where you can go for morning exercise and fantastic restaurants to try some of Kunming's most tasty local delicacies as well as some of your favorite foods from back home.

Getting Around Kunming

As our apartments and homestays are located in downtown Kunming, you can walk to many places in the city with ease. Kunming’s fantastic weather and beautiful parks make it a particularly excellent city to walk around in. Additionally, walking around is a fantastic way to get an upfront view of the city’s culture.

Another excellent way of getting around Kunming is by bicycle. While cars and electric mopeds are all over Kunming, bikes are still quite numerous. Minds Abroad can easily help you if you are interested in renting or purchasing a bike while studying with us. 

For those places that are a bit too far for walking or riding a bike, you can easily take a taxi or bus. Taxis in Kunming start at just over $1 and you can go to almost any place in the city for under $3. Buses are even cheaper. For just 15 cents you can take buses anywhere in the city and can even get a bus card that lowers this to ten cents and gives you free transfers! Quite simply, getting around Kunming is very easy and affordable.

Rural Homestays

In addition to our year-round urban homestays in Kunming we also arrange for rural homestays with some of our summer programs. Our rural homestays are based in Weishan and small village in the Dali prefecture in Yunnan. Experiencing family life in these two different environments is the kind of cultural immersion experience that will be of value to students interested in furthering their understanding of China.  During rural homestay students will have a less structured experience so that they have plenty of time to participate in activities with their homestay family like cooking, farming, shopping for produce etc.
