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.

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.
“We had an amazing program. It was a biology teacher’s dream and Felipe and his crew couldn’t have been more thorough and professional to work with. Thanks for all of your efforts to organize an unforgettable experience for us all.”— Gerry , Traveling Faculty, LCC Colombia 2016
“Many student groups participate in ‘Voluntourism’. This trip did not attempt that, but rather funneled the collective energy of each member into meaningful, mutually beneficial cultural interactions. Thank you so much for this unforgettable and transformational experience.”— Altana , Student, Friends Seminary South Africa 2016
“Envoys was at the top of their game from start to finish. What initially interested me was their focus on curriculum during pre-departure meetings and the program itself. Envoys cares deeply about the experience of the participants and faculty. [They] constantly ask for constructive criticism and make changes when necessary.”— Joe Vogel , Executive Director, Global Education Benchmark Group
