Trip Style: Local Living - Don't just visit; move right in
Always dreamed of renting a villa or cottage somewhere but thought you couldn't afford tos You can now. Local Living adventures put you undercover in some of the world's greatest and most out-there destinations and serve up a taste of life as it's lived every day. Unpack once at a central home base-a Tuscan farmhouse, a French river barge, a private home in the Amazon Delta, that sort of thing-and explore alongside like-minded travellers and a connected CEO who knows the area best.

There's no better way to get to know a country than by immersing yourself right into the heart of it, and this Local Living stay in Panauti will allow you to do just that. Make yourself at home in this farming village, steeped in culture and tradition. During your stay you'll learn all about Nepalese customs and traditions, hearing stories that only locals can tell. Pick up ingredients from surrounding markets and enjoy Nepalese cooking demonstrations from your homestay hosts, all after working up your appetite by hiking though surrounding towns. You'll leave this village a different person than you arrived (and hopefully a better cook).
