11 Reasons Why You Should Stay at a Stranger’s Place

Travel is as much about meeting people as it is about seeing places. Why isolate yourself within insular, purpose-built walls of a hotel?

There’s nothing strange about staying in a stranger’s home. There’s a world outside the walls of resorts and related tourist-traps and it’s brimming with the culture you’ve traveled so far to experience. Tripoto brings you 11 reasons why you should give home-stays a chance.

1. Because you are tired of staying in hotels, waiting at reception desks and walking into drab, boring rooms.

2. Because Marco Polo never checked-in nowhere! Strangers were his abode.

3. Because the best way to learn about a city and its true culture is living with a local

4. Because the best hotel deals won’t come close to the joy of living-room conversations that grow into friendships, memories, stories. Isn’t that why we travel?

5. Because you’ll be part of a sharing movement that is bringing the world closer. One home at a time.

6. Because you could end up staying here.


7. Because you deserve more than valet-parking and awkward room-service.

8. Because checking-in to a lighthouse is a story worth sharing in itself. Yes ladies and gentlemen, a frickin’ lighthouse!

9. Because it is cheaper, and better. Admit it, that doesn’t happen very often in life.

10. Because there are no strangers. You’ll realize soon enough.
