1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

First day of teaching and getting to know the other volunteers

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Ask questions and get information from volunteers that have been there longer than you

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I'm hoping the children benefited from hearing English from a native speaker and my experience and teaching strategies. The local community benefited from me spending money including shops and the family that started the school.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Overall my vacation was great, it was a good balance of living and teaching with the locals then being a tourist on the weekend and visiting Siem Reap.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Much of the vacation was memorable, the madness of Saigon, the beautiful town of Hoi An, exploring Hue and surrounding countryside by motorbike, the wonderful Ha Long Bay, the delicious food......I could go on!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Go with an open mind and you will not be disappointed with the experience of travel & living in Vietnam. If you are after partying and drinking lots every night this is not for you.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

The tour took the opportunity to engage with tourist services offered by local people thus ensuring that the locals benefited from the tourist boom in the country. From an environmental perspective I think the impacts could be minimised more than they were but this comes at a price which may place a basic style trip out of price for many a traveler.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very satisfied with the whole package! While I went with a basic style vacation - my expectation was surpassed on many accounts. Even the Vietnamese overnight trains were an experience not to be missed. All in all a good way to get a good taste of Vietnam but disappointed we did not get to Sapa. Next time maybe?
