Yujoy Homestay is neither grand nor luxurious and does not come with opulent furnishings and decorations. Yujoy homestay is a simple but elegant establishment adorned with the natural beauty of the ocean and sky. The rooms provide a stunning view of the ocean for you to admire. Here you can immerse yourself in the enchanting environment of the Jingang mountains, and gaze out at the endless Pacific ocean. In the morning you can admire a myriad of magical changes to the sea of clouds before sunrise, and walk along the waves and pick up rocks at the beach in the evening. At night, the moon and stars will keep you company as you fall asleep to the croaking lullabies of frogs.

Through playing, exploring, and experiencing life in the tribe, Emas, a young local, helps people get to know life in Jiqi. The Jiqi tribe used to be lifeless as many young people left for a life outside the tribe. When Emas returned to his hometown, he began to deeply appreciate and treasure the wisdom of his tribe elders. Giving up a stable job and income, he decided to spend time with the tribe elders and hopes to pass on and preserve their heritage. With an open and sharing spirit, Emas began to collect traditional aborigines daily life objects for the Jiqi Life Museum. Through a series of environmental and tribal activities (e.g. river-tracing the origins of old tribal waterfalls, diving in intertidal zones, wooden canoe workshops on the Pacific ocean, cooking with wild and natural produce, and tracking buffalo footprints), Emas not only introduces his hometown to travellers, but also inspires and encourages the young people of the tribe to care and pass on their tribal heritage. In hopes of promoting tribal unity and collaboration, this small tribe diligently runs the museum. Even if you spend an entire week at the museum, you are guaranteed to never feel bored or run out of things to do.
