Vietnam Itinerary Tour

Here is the full video of our itinerary in Vietnam. The students will visit Ho Chi Minh City, Hue, Hoi an, Hanoi and Halong Bay.

HISTORY & CLASSICS

Beginning with ANZAC military advisors arriving in South Vietnam in 1963, the Vietnam War (American War) would become one of the longest military commitments in Australia’s history. The evidence of Australia’s involvement can be witnessed from the moving Long Tan cross to the unbelievable Cu Chi tunnel system.

Visits to historic museums, commemorative monuments and even former prisons, will present your students with the opportunity to not only engage with Australian history, but also experience the warmth and hospitality of a people who have slowly rebuilt their lives and the beautiful culture that they cherish and preserve.

SERVICE TOURS

Service or community based projects are a brilliant, hands on way to give back to your host country. Travelbound can incorporate a service component into your tour, which can include activities from community development projects or even lending a hand at local schools.

Culture

Travelbound believe that truly educational travel experiences involve hands-on interaction with the true culture of a country – culture meaning the daily activities, customs and way of life, not just the historic attractions and scenic sites. See what cultural discoveries await your students through these unique and immersive experiences:

  • Learn how to row a boat and make traditional fishing nets
  • Catch squid or fish and cook your own meal
  • Primary school visits including tour, playing games and exchanging gifts
  • Vietnamese cooking classes

  • Water Puppet Show The tradition of water puppet theatre stems from a time when rice paddy fields were flooded and villagers would make entertainment by standing in the waist-deep water with the puppets performing over the water. Performances are accompanied by a Vietnamese orchestra playing traditional music using drums, wooden bells, horns, bamboo flutes and cymbals.
  • Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum  where the nation’s founder’s body is preserved
