Southern Vietnam is a place of fascinating contradictions; thriving metropolis and peaceful rural lands, colonial and Asian influence in food and architecture, and a creative and artistic people living with the scars of a devastating war. Students on this 9-day tour will experience these contradictions for themselves as they travel from Saigon to the Mekong Delta, and onto the lovely port town of Hoi An. Highlights of this tour include a visit to the incredible Cu Chi tunnels built and occupied by the Viet Cong, the stunning 12th century ruins of My Son, and a Vietnamese cooking lesson.
This affordable tour is aimed at secondary school students, and has been designed to include Content and language Integrated Learning opportunities. These experiences will assist students in gaining a better understanding and respect for different cultures.
