For those who look for some great budget destinations to travel to, Vietnam is one of the best choice hands down. The country is a developing nation and its economy relies a lot on the tourism, thus making it quite affordable to explore. What adds to it is the fact that the stay and meals are covered under the program fee, which cuts down a major part of any travel expenditure. Past volunteers to Vietnam had shared some more than satisfactory experiences with us.

 

4. Opportunity to Sip on One of the Best Coffees in the World

You would not even think about doubting the quality of coffee served in a country that happens to be its second largest producer in the world. And what is served on your table, in a café, is coffee added with sweetened condensed milk; giving it a taste of a different level. Drinking coffee is a regular activity in the country and could be found as a habit in most families.

 

5. Good Food

To volunteer, one needs energy, and for energy one needs food. And no matter how lame this line may sound, it is the truth. But when you are in Vietnam, it is more than just for the energy sake that you gorge on some lip-smacking delicacies. It is the variety, the flavor, the essence, and the fact that Vietnam has one of the best street-food you will find anywhere in the world.  

6. A Dark Past, a Developing Present, and a Hopeful Future
