An Incredible Memory in Vietnam

What's most interesting about such a long trip is that you are motivated to learn more about yourself, whether you admit it or not. Living in a new culture totally different from what you are accustomed to makes you think deeply about yourself and the whole world. Personally, my favorite part was to make friends with new people and get to know themselves and their fantastic future plans.

The program integrated a lot of activities, but still spared time for me to enjoy freedom. Honestly, that was among the best study journeys in my life.

Yes, I recommend this program
