Suggested Activities in Vietnam

  1. Go on Culinary Journey – Vietnamese cuisine is known to be one of the healthiest in the world, and each town will present you with an opportunity to test out your culinary skills in a cooking school. You also get to go shopping for fresh ingredients in vibrant street markets before returning to the kitchen, where experienced chefs share their knowledge in whipping up local delicacies.
  2. Join a Free Walking Tour – Free walking tours in Hanoi are a great way of getting to know the history of prominent tourist spots in the eyes of a local. Organized by NGOs and universities, most tours are led by students who can speak relatively fluent English. Depending on the itinerary you choose, stops include the Old and French Quarters of Hanoi, Museum of Ethnology, Bat Trang Handicraft Village, Temple of Literature, and West Lake.
  3. Participate in Cooking Class – There are plenty of restaurants and five-star hotels in Ho Chi Minh City that organize half-day cooking classes. Guided by an experienced chef, each session starts off with a trip to the local market to shop for fresh produce, herbs and spices. After heading back to the hotel/restaurant, you will learn how to prepare authentic Vietnamese dishes.

Advice for Someone Considering Doing an Internship in Vietnam

  1. Dress appropriately – Bring your nice clothes. However, do as the locals do and be moderate. It is hot in Vietnam but locals do not wear bikinis on the street or walk around with no shirt showing off their tattoos. You need to think more carefully about what you’re wearing is if you visit any temples or mosques.
  2. Get ready to haggle – Haggling is very much a part of Vietnamese culture. You can try out your negotiation skills in markets. You can either ask for a “better price” or tell them what you’re willing to pay. If they let you walk out of their shop without discounting the price further, you know you’ve gone too low.
  3. The traffic is really hectic – Vietnam is the second largest motorcycle ownership in the world after Taiwan. During the peak hours of the weekends, holidays, the number of motorbikes is too many. Traffic jams on the day are also common in the city, during working hours.
