About the Location

Hanoi is a very popular location for high school groups. Hanoi is Vietnam’s bustling capital city, yet it still maintains a traditional and more mellow vibe compared to other Asian cities like Bangkok or Ho Chi Minh City.

Volunteers in Hanoi have many opportunities to serve on a grassroots level tackling challenges related to children’s education and urban poverty. They can live in a welcoming hostel, which is located in the center of town.

Hanoi has all the amenities of a big city and offers an incredible array of activities, including art shows, great restaurants, museums and countless opportunities to walk around and experience Vietnamese culture at its finest.
