BeWelcome - Share a place to sleep & Meet locals worldwide

Be Welcome - Meet locals worldwide

BeWelcome is a free culture crossing network that lets you share a place to sleep, meet up and help others on their way. Let us show you how!

The concept
Imagine arriving in a city like Paris or Mumbai and, instead of trying to find a taxi, there is somebody already waiting for you. Imagine that instead of going to eat at the place recommended by the guidebook, someone shows you their favourite restaurant. Imagine the experience staying as a personal guest of your new friend rather than sleeping in an impersonal hotel room. BeWelcome makes it possible.

Introducing Bewelcome
Many members in BeWelcome offer a place to stay overnight to traveling or visiting members, or offer to meet-up and show them around their city or region. Free of charge. Bewelcome aims at creating more real social connections in the world and to create deeper cultural understanding.

BeWelcome was founded and is managed by a team of volunteer from all over the world. Their dream is to create a project that allows everyone to visit a destination through the eyes of local people and to experience the variety of cultures in everyday life - when travelling but also at home.

BeWelcome Members
The reason why the BeWelcome members open up their homes to other members, may vary, but generally members offer a place to stay because they want to support travelers, they would like to gain a deeper insight into other cultures, they like to show people around in their city or they simply like to meet new people and make friends; have them over for dinner and enjoy a good evening talk.

Other reasons for people to be a member of BeWelcome include:
- to meet interesting, open minded people
- to meet locals and to gain an insider view
- to save money through the offer of free accommodation
- the wish for flexibility and freedom of choice when travelling
- to get contacts, pursue effective networking
- to improve language skills

Nice concept , i think it is similar to homestay and farm stay, where you get chance to meet and live with locals.
