The village of Mengkuang Titi has a population of about 800, and still retains the rustic feel ideal for the development of agricultural and cottage industries. As such, it was selected for the Mengkuang Titi Homestay. The homestay programme is intended to uplift the living standards of the rural community. Through this programme, visitors get to stay with host families and get to know their way of life. The guests get the chance to engage in the agricultural activities such as paddy planting or picking fruits from the trees.
I was actually a bit surprised when I visited the Mengkuang Titi Homestay. I had expected nothing more than a cluster of rural village houses. Instead, I saw that the government has created a "sample village". This is located along Jalan Penanti (aka Penang State Route P119).
