School Trips to Vietnam

School trips to Vietnam are a great choice for groups who wish to travel a little further afield to learn more about the history, geography and culture of Southeast Asia!

Vietnam’s history and culture are fascinating and so different from those of the UK that this is a wonderful destination to help your students develop their understanding of the wider world around them. They will have so many new experiences on this school trip that will help to open their minds to the incredible diversity of the world we live in.

Whether you choose to base your school trip to Vietnam in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, or take the time to visit both, this will be a school trip abroad that your students will never forget, thanks to it being packed with new educational experiences from beginning to end.

Why visit Vietnam?

The complicated history

If you’re thinking of visiting Vietnam on a history school trip, then you’ll probably want to base yourselves in Ho Chi Minh City, as this is the best destination for learning about the Vietnam War and its effects on the local people.

They’ll see the impact of colonialism and war and will learn more about how the country’s politics affect everyday life in Vietnam.

A highlight of your history school trip to Vietnam will be the opportunity to explore the Cu Chi Tunnels, used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. Here your students will learn more about the guerrilla tactics used by the Viet Cong during the conflict.

The incredible geography

Hanoi, the capital city, is a fascinating blend of Vietnamese and French culture, and is particularly popular among school groups interested in the country’s geography and culture.

The city itself offers the opportunity to learn more about the ancient Vietnamese culture, as well as the impacts of colonialism and communism.

It also makes the perfect base for exploring the iconic Ha Long Bay, to explore the bay’s spectacular limestone karsts on a junk cruise.

Another highlight not to be missed on an educational tour to Vietnam is a visit to the Mekong Delta, where students will have the unique opportunity to spend time interacting with the locals, gaining a deeper insight into Vietnamese culture by experiencing life in the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam.

The rich culture

Vietnam boasts one of the oldest cultures in Southeast Asia. It has been heavily influenced by other cultures during the country’s long history, most notably by the Chinese culture, but also by the French during the colonial period.

Key aspects of the Vietnamese culture include a focus on harmony and humanity. The family also plays an important part in Vietnamese culture and the veneration of ancestors is almost universally practised.

The opportunity to immerse themselves in such an ancient Asian culture is an opportunity not to be missed for your students. It will give them a greater appreciation of the diversity of cultures in the world and will help them to widen their horizons beyond the borders of Europe.
