Relatives and friends of Homestay's owner. Mrs Reddish is on extreme right.She goes to the airport to look for guests. The guy (second from left) is all set to trek 8 hours over the mountains to his kampung in Indonesian Kalimantan.
Ngimat Ayu Homestay. 3.5 km from airport. Near art gallery and school. Has fantastic views of padi fields and mountains. With a good book and a coffee I can sit on its balcony all day!
Useful tips and info:
1. Homestay rate is RM$60 per person, and includes 3 meals and free flow of drinks.
2. Electricity comes on from 6PM to 11PM
3. Bring a torchlight for that visit to the toilet in the middle of the night. Or else you might stumble in the dark, crash into the flimsy toilet walls and bring the house down!
4. It's chilly at night.
5. Bring insect repellent or go mad with itchy insect bites.
