Vietnam is a complex and beautiful country filled with rich culture, relevant history and stunning geography. Located south of China, east of Cambodia, and along the banks of the South China Sea, Vietnam has a beautiful shoreline and contains a wealth of biodiversity. With over 50 distinct ethnic groups, Vietnam also contains a wide variety of traditions and cultures. From Ho Chi Minh City in the south to Hanoi in the North there is something for every student travel tour in this peaceful and fascinating country.
No Barriers Youth offers groups the ability to experience the rich culture and natural beauty of Vietnam while engaging in meaningful service projects. Vietnam is an emerging economy and the warm and welcoming people are eager to share their phenomenal cuisine and diverse culture.
Getting immersed in the culture of India and getting to know and love the children was the greatest. When the students would cling to me at the end of class, and tell me how much they enjoyed having me there was heartbreaking.Rachel W., Student
There is so much life, happening all the time. It's crazy to think that, after only three weeks, I feel like I've become accustomed to so much of how the world move.Saul S., Student
I just wanted to take a moment to formally thank you for another unbelievable and life changing trip. No Barriers Youth made it all possible and took the guesswork out of a potentially nerve wracking and complicated task.Amanda W., Trip Leader
