I had the most incredible time on a 6 week homestay in Hangzhou. I was very nervous before going, but I was very warmly welcomed by my generous host family, and it was a huge boost to my Chinese language skills and confidence. As my first time going to China, it was also fascinating to discover such a different culture. The organisers of my trip were so fun and friendly, committed to me having a good time, and I always felt safe. I particularly loved the free language lessons. I would recommend this trip to anybody who loves adventure and is drawn by Chinese culture.
