We offer you the opportunity to really interact with local communities, to better understand the culture and way of life. You can Lend a Hand in Hue by helping out a local farmer in the rice fields and reeling in some fish for dinner. Back in the village you will learn how to make traditional Vietnamese handicrafts. An experience we’re sure you won’t be forgetting.
We believe that where you spend the night is just as much a part of the experience as what you see during the day. Staying somewhere that reflects the culture and nature of your surroundings makes for a more enriching trip and you’ll feel more immersed and connected with Vietnam. From a traditional junk boat floating amongst limestone peaks to a rustic beach bungalow on a remote island, we opt for small-scale, authentic accommodation with plenty of local charm.
Our Local Vietnam Project
In each destination we support a local project by giving you the option to donate a small amount when you book with us. In Vietnam we’ve chosen the Child Surgery Vietnam Organisation, which assists physically handicapped children living in poorer areas of Vietnam. Many handicaps can be remedied or alleviated by orthopedic and reconstructive plastic surgery. As families in these areas are unable to afford such treatments, the organisation covers the cost of surgical operations, rehabilitation and support for those affected, changing their lives for the better.
Our Local Partners in Vietnam
In Vietnam we work with a local partner who is just as keen to promote meaningful travel as we are. They work closely with our Vietnam Product Manager to find unique experiences and authentic trips. We only use local Vietnamese guides and drivers during all our excursions. This makes for a more rewarding experience for you and also helps to put money into the pockets of the local people. There’s no knowledge like local knowledge!
