World Challenge Vietnam 2017

World Challenge Vietnam 2017


Fifteen pupils went on an expedition to Vietnam with World Challenge. Our base was Hanoi where we quickly learnt to deal with traffic and enjoyed shopping in the busy streets.

We had to conquer extreme heat and humidity during a trek in Sapa Valley, famous for its ancient agriculture terraces. We were hosted at home stays and learnt to prepare local food

We joined a community project in the town of Ba Vi at a government home for orphaned people with disabilities. We helped with maintenance of infrastructure and also interacted with and cared for some of the residents. There were tearful goodbyes on our final day.

The last part of our trip was spent on the beaches of Cat Ba Beach Resort in Halong Bay, amid the splendor of thousands of limestone islands.
