Vietnam & Cambodia
We explore the history, natural beauty, and rich culture of South East Asia
A program in this region may begin with an in-depth exploration of Vietnam, looking at the both the dynamic megacities pushed by by a booming manufacturing and trade economy, as well as the blend of Chinese, Khmer, and French influences on the uniquely Vietnamese culture. We experience the natural beauty and traditional lifestyle found throughout the Mekong Delta, continuing on to view the mystical treasures of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
Potential Project Themes
With an incredible diversity of flavors to explore, the range of Vietnamese cuisine presents one glimpse into the complexity of the country.
By visiting sites like the Cu Chi Tunnels & the Angkor Wat, we explore the long, complex, and rich history of the region.
Ho Chi Minh City is a high-energy metropolis represents the pulsating energy of Vietnam, with a chaotic whirl of commercial and cultural sites to take in.
We visit places like Tonle Sap, one of the most unique ecological water wonders in the world and the largest lake in South East Asia.
“I was incredibly impressed by the care taken by Envoys. Before we even hit the ground, there was an emphasis on comprehending impact on our destination’s environment that I appreciated..Throughout the trip, our Envoys leaders made sure that we continued to be conscious of impact. That awareness of cause and effect is something that often gets lost when traveling, and Envoys did not allow it to. During this trip, there was never a moment I did not feel safe and cared for nor a moment where I did not feel I was learning something!”— Keylee S. , Student, Dalton South Africa 2014
“The individuals we worked with, without exception, were all professional, courteous, patient, and greatly attentive to detail. As stated above, Envoys is flexible and works hard to make sure that if you have custom aspects to a trip that you want to add, they will work hard to make it happen for you.”— Adam H. , Faculty, Belmont Hill Japan 2016
“The Envoys Staff were exceptionally committed to us and to the goals of our trip. They were thoughtful, kind, caring, friendly, with great sense of humor, yet serious in their connection to the ethos of professional development that was our trip’s purpose. I was struck over and over again by how they literally RAN to be in the right place to respond to any given situation.”— Constance , Traveling Faculty, Friends Seminary Colombia 2016
