Community-based rural tourism in homestays is widely recognised as a sustainable model promoting livelihoods across the ASEAN countries. North East India comprising of the eight states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim & Tripura sharing borders with the ASEAN countries has been trying to propagate rural homestay tourism. Given the success cases across the ASEAN countries in rural homestay tourism, the paper tries to bring to the fore the best practices, and catalytic factors and processes in community-based rural homestay tourism adopted by the ASEAN countries. Further, an attempt has been made to analyse the relevant best practices in rural homestay tourism across the ASEAN countries which can be replicated in North East India.
