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!
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.
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.
And of course, you could also consider joining forces to make this a cross-curricular event for your school!
