While in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, experience the culture!
Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is a city in southern Vietnam famous for the pivotal role it played in the Vietnam War. It's also known for its French colonial landmarks, including Notre-Dame Cathedral, made entirely of materials imported from France, and the 19th-century Central Post Office. Food stalls line the city’s streets, especially around bustling Ben Thành Market.
HCMC is a city of commerce and culture that has driven the country forward with great energy. A chaotic whirl, the city breathes life and vitality into all who settle there, and visitors cannot help but tag along for the ride. The ghosts of the past live on in buildings that one generation ago witnessed a city in turmoil, but now the real beauty of the former Saigon’s urban collage blends these two worlds into one exciting mass.
Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is considered to be the cultural centre of the nation and is most welcoming to visitors. It has internationally-recognised universities, museums, theatres, amazing restaurants and lovely parks, along with a famous lake. It’s not all about baguettes, buildings and the city though. There is a lot to be explored for the adventure seekers too!
The tourism bureau of Hanoi has taken a sincere interest in developing the presence of adventure tourism, making activities like trekking, kayaking and rock climbing readily available. Check the official tourism website or ask your Site Director for more information about these adventurous opportunities to experience Vietnam’s countryside. There is plenty to see and do for any personality type. Looking for a happy medium between thrill seeking and something more mellow? Consider one of the Hanoi City bicycle tours, or take a traditional paddle boat down the lakes and around the exquisite rock formations.
Vietnam's cultural diversity stems from its fascinating history. Chinese occupation left a strong influence on the architecture, religion and cuisine. You may also notice that the Indian culture has left a lasting impression as well. There are many French colonial characteristics still apparent, with distinctive pastel, yellow painted buildings and an adoption of the French coffee culture, along with the quintessential baguette.
We want you to get the most out of your experience, which is why we provide you with airport pick-up, accommodation and the other logistical details that can become a distraction from the real purpose of your trip. This way, you get comfortable quickly and start enjoying the Vietnamese lifestyle, while being able to focus on your customised internship.
The on-site support team is made up of a diverse and dynamic team of passionate travellers and professionals who know the local environment and also get where interns are coming from. While language is not a barrier in this location, it’s always good to have a contact that knows the local culture and can speak the local language fluently. That’s just what interns receive from local on-site CISaustralia staff in Vietnam.
