Where we are based in Vietnam


Your Vietnam volunteer program will be based in or around Hanoi, the capital and second largest city. Hanoi is located in the north of the country, and is characterized by its busy streets and tall skyscrapers. The people of Vietnam are warm and welcoming, and you can get to know them while exploring markets and eating delicious street foods like spring rolls.


Vietnam draws hundreds and thousands of tourists to its shores. The breathtaking beauty of Ha Long Bay is the nearest coastal attraction, and you can easily visit it over a weekend. We also recommend taking a break in the peaceful countryside and watch the sun set over endless rice paddies.

Airport pickup, flights and visas

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Vietnam Arrival Procedures page.
