In this southeast Asian country, 1,000-year-old traditions are alive and respected. Exploring the mesmerizing city of Saigon and surrounding villages allows students to observe traditional Vietnamese and contemporary international educational practices in local schools. Traveling to the Central Highlands and exploring the town of Da Lat (City of Eternal Spring), visiting local orphanages, learning basic Vietnamese language skills, encountering the long-tailed macaque monkey on Monkey Island, snorkeling through coral reefs around Hon Tre Island, and visiting the white beaches of Mui Ne is all part of becoming engaged in the Vietnamese culture.
