Also, people here are very welcoming and cheerful, they always like to warm welcome the guests and serve them in the best way possible, so we also believe that the families can also do the accommodation for him. If it is hostel, then it is paid by the student (the person), although the prices vary, but we think that a suitable accommodation will cost 400-500$ for two weeks.As we said, we will try our best to help the student to pay the minimum prices in everywhere.

Regarding the costs and expenses, the foods and other things here are very price reasonable and we think that it will have a moderate cost on the student, we think that a budget of 150-300$ will be good for the student to cover the extra foods and trips that he/she wants.
