Vietnam is packed with intriguing and exciting experiences. The cities, ancient temples, grand buildings and teeming markets reveal the centuries-old influences that have shaped the country. In remote villages age-old customs survive within ethnic tribes. Then there’s the food - subtle in flavour and outstanding in diversity. Vietnam is a feast for all the senses.
Trekking is a fantastic way to appreciate this country’s diverse and breathtaking landscapes. Discover the rice fields and dramatic limestone karsts of northern Sapa, summit Lang Bian Peak in the mountains of central Dalat or explore Pu Luong Nature Reserve (an area of stunning beauty and biodiversity) dotted with traditional villages.
Teams can often trek into their project site where they will spend time engaged in a variety of tasks depending on local needs. These could include developing village infrastructure or working on agricultural or environmental projects. It is a wonderful opportunity to make a contribution to a remote community and experience a traditional lifestyle untouched by tourism.
A trip to Vietnam would not be complete without visiting some of the historical sites which reflect this country’s varied and dramatic past. The Cu Chi Tunnels in the south or the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City, provide stark evidence of the gruesome effects of war.The temples and pagodas of Hue and Hoi An offer atmospheric reminders of Vietnam’s ancient past.
Travelling past jungles, rainforests, lush countryside, mountains and rivers mean that visitors experience a real variety of terrain. It all offers excellent trekking opportunities in a landscape that never fails to impress.
Vietnamese culture is complex and diverse. It has been subject to many foreign and religious influences but the importance of ancestor worship, family values and traditional festivals remain integral features. Discovering the culture of Vietnam is a wonderful and unforgettable adventure.
There is not really a right or wrong time to visit Vietnam. During most months of the year you will experience both sunshine and rain in varying quantities.
