Vietnam School Tours' Experience

Vietnam offers a variety of stunning landscapes as well as many historical and cultural destinations that you can plan to see. It’s a chance for your students not only to witness beautiful sightseeing in the world but also to discover much about Vietnamese’s culture and tradition – a trip go far beyond beautiful Vietnam sites.

Attractions

Vietnam has a variety of attractions coming from every corner of itself, ranging from beautiful sightseeing, untouched islets and small old aged villages to war museums, colonial structures, and ancient citadel. First with Hanoi – the beautiful old aged capital of Vietnam. This corner really has many things for you to visit: Temple Literature – the first university in Vietnam, Hoang Thanh Thang Long (Imperial Citadel of Thang Long), The President Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum – an ideal historical places since it keeps all the old things of Uncle Ho; The Old Square for your class to explore much further about Vietnamese locals’ lives; and The Walking Street on the weekend nights for a real and direct night scenes inside the city. A school tour becomes much more meaningful when your students can take part in many interesting activities. Around the capital city, there also many delightful places that you cannot miss. Bat Trang pottery village is a good example. Bat Trang ceramics are produced for daily use such as bowls, cups, plates… and this is where products are favorite over the country. When coming to Bat Trang pottery village, encourage your students to design and decorate their own products to bring back home, it’s a good opportunity for your kids to think and act more creatively. Hue – Danang – Hoi An is a group of three outstanding travel places highly recommended for any group of travelers. The old citadel of Vietnam, Hue city, still retains its uniqueness about local lives, natural sightseeing as well as cultural destinations. The city represents the outstanding demonstration of the power of the vanished Vietnam feudal empire, including a complex of monuments, tombs, and pagodas that attract tourists when coming here, especially when you are a history buff or love discovering exotic cultural. Visitors can also have a real feel of a romantic night floating on a boat on Huong River (Perfume River) while enjoying Hue specialties and watching royal art performance. From the city, drive thirty minutes to the South and Da Nang is extremely different from what you have seen in Hue. Da Nang is definitely a modern and developing city where you can enjoy a distinguished travel experience. Getting lost into space at the top of Ba Na Hill is one can be named, from that height of the cable car system, you can have an overview of the city, which is really incredible. After that, let’s invite your friends to take part in many interesting and funny games, and of course, there are always presents for winner groups. Another attractive scene of Da Nang is about Han Bridge since 9 pm every weekend you can see the bridge swinging – a unique feature of itself. To the north of Da Nang lied Hoi An, the popular ancient town in Vietnam. Hoi An offers you with an old aged feeling once you visit this place. Locals are friendly and hospital, street food is the best and special local products are countless but it is not lack of modern scenes. Hoi An is where the west effect and the traditional east culture meet and exchange. Therefore, the ancient town in Hoi An really has many things for you to explore: you can enjoy a lantern festival, get lost in a night market where shows and sells many lovely souvenirs, or have a tailor tailor-made your own traditional Ao Dai. To the south of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City (formally called Sai Gon) is a good choice for your school tour. The city has not only beautiful features coming from people and modern lifestyle but also contains a variety of historical places to visit. Let’s visit Cu Chi Tunnels then you will see the most incredible things on earth. They are part of a massive war museum in Ho Chi Minh City and offers visitors a sneak peak at the underground life of Vietnamese soldiers back in 1948. You can enjoy plenty of activities during the visit, follow the narrow routes of the underground tunnel after watching a short film showing how the tunnels system works. There are always travel guides who know the history very well and have a beautiful voice telling many short tales about the war between Vietnam and America. That’s a good chance for your class to enrich knowledge about history and know more about Vietnamese locals during the war. Finally, Mekong River Delta River is a good suggestion for a school trip in Vietnam. This part of the country is where locals from many ethnic groups live both on and aside from the river. One of the most memorial things to try is going to the Floating Market on The Mekong. People show and sell their products, earn money and buy food and other things for the family. The Floating Market is a unique beautiful feature of this area. Additionally, follow the water and see how people live on the riverside is an amazing experience. People here live mostly on the river and hardly have land for agriculture. However, they do have enough food for their family since most of them have floating gardens. When coming here, let your kids join with the locals to plant vegetable as well as colorful flowers, or even choose to feed lots of cattle that they raise. Though you can “live” only a limited times on this exotic area, I believe that a floating life is unforgettable.

People and lifestyle

The lifestyle of people living in urban areas and big cities like Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi is definitely distinguished with that of people living in rural areas of villages. Life in the city is often more modern and complicated while life in the countryside is more quiet and peaceful. However, at every corner of Vietnam, people are always friendly and hospitable. Vietnamese people very welcome to all of the foreign visitors come to see and explore their hometown. Every time coming to a new place, do not feel so strange as people are always smiling on you. Vietnamese always want their clients most comfortable and feel safe in their own home. But there a little thing to notice, it’s about traffic in the city. In the center of many big cities, traffic jam happens every day. It’s much better than you plan your class trip carefully and maybe walking is the best way to explore the street at that time. Since it’s difficult to move around if you and your students get stuck in the traffic.

History

After hundred years of colonization and destruction, Vietnam has gradually stepped out and developed. However, until today, people keep all the memory about war and variations of difficult time before. That’s why there are plenty of historical places around Vietnam. Suffering from two giant wars with French and America, Vietnam nowadays has countless history story to tell you and your class. It’s someway a good opportunity for your students to widen their knowledge about the past of Vietnam, know how difficult brave and talented Vietnamese were.

When to go?

The ideal time for a Vietnam School tour is from November to March of the next year. This period of time is often in the spring season when the weather is quite good with light sunny in the south and a little cold in the north. This is also when people celebrate their traditional Tet holidays so that there are many activities for your kids to join in such as making Banh Chung (a traditional food for Tet), giving and receiving Lixi (a kind of red lucky money wrapped in red envelopes). Later in March is also when many students in the West enjoy their Easter vacation. And if you and your class are planning to visit Vietnam these days, that’s the ideal time. But you do not have any vacations at that beautiful time in Vietnam, do not worry, a long summer vacation is much amazing when enjoying in here. From late July to early September, Vietnam has many interesting places to go such as beautiful and untouched islets in Nha Trang, various grateful activities in Dam Sen Water Park in Ho Chi Minh City, and etc. Now that you can see, at every time for a trip to Vietnam, you will have plenty of things to do and see.
