Vietnam and Cambodia trip

During the October break Melissa joined an amazing trip in Vietnam and Cambodia with other students of the school. The two weeks were filled with exciting activities and places to visit. Trips like this can be incredibly enriching and provide a wealth of experiences and memories.

After being in Hanoi, students went to Sapa which is one of the most interesting towns in North Vietnam and where there are beautiful mountain-spaces, diversity of minority people, and rice terrace fields, especially Fansipan Mountain well-known as Indochina Top. Students had the opportunity to interact with the locals during a visit to a Primary boarding school in the area and they did a boat tour in Tràng An. They also did a one-day cruise where they could do some kayaking in a lagoon and visit Sung Sot Cave. They visited the Vietnam Military Museum to learn about their history and enjoyed a rickshaw tour of the city and shop for souvenirs.

Memories of Cambodia will also always be unforgettable for the students. In Siem Reap they embarked on a culinary adventure with a cooking lesson, where everyone learned how to cook traditional Cambodian dishes and received certificates for their culinary achievements! 

It was a great luck also to have the opportunity to visit an orphanage: the time spent with children was truly heartwarming.
The 15 students who went on this trip generously donated school materials to 65 local students in need, a seemingly small gesture which meant so much to these children. We are so proud of Melissa and all the students for taking time to do such a beautiful thing.

Students were delighted to have a traditional dinner while enjoying a lovely Apsara Dance show.

The visit to the Angkor Wat and the Tomb Raider temple captivated them and after that they journeyed to the capital, Phnom Penh.

On their last day they had the privilege to interact with the local students, an enriching experience that touched their hearts.
