Hop off the beaten path of Europe and choose to study abroad somewhere different. One of the major benefits of studying abroad in a less popular country is the time abroad is more of a mystery and students receive a unique experience. It also opens students to the world more fully by immersing them in a culture truly different from their own. Vietnam is the perfect country for those hoping to expand their horizons and also receive a great education.
Vietnam is a wonderful country to choose for a study abroad. It’s small but over 98 million people call it home. The population puts it high on the list for most populated countries in the world. The country has truly rebuilt itself from the days of the Vietnam War and it’s a beautiful nation for students to explore.
It’s an affordable country and most students won’t have any issues affording necessities. Food is cheap and Western money goes far. The country is known for its traditional dishes, such as pho and many others. It was ranked as the cheapest place to travel in 2017 by Forbes.
Besides being affordable and gorgeous, the country offers some of the best opportunities for learning. Local universities often offer classes based on understanding the way of life in Vietnam, including small-scale agricultural production processes to classes on the Vietnamese healthcare system. Vietnam is one of the fastest-growing economies in Southeast Asia and with a growing economy comes a bigger push for education and teaching others. Now is the time to study abroad in Vietnam.

We were in town for a family event and decided to take advantage of the lovely early fall evening by enjoying dinner outside. The restaurant is popular, so we called right when they opened to make a last-minute reservation. Thankfully, they had availability for outdoor seating.
