Community interaction in Vietnam and Cambodia

Voyager Worldwide would like to invite you and your students to immerse yourselves into the local communities

of Vietnam or Cambodia.

Meet local school children and their families on a Voyager Community Interaction tour


On this trip of a lifetime you'll take a glimpse into the life of local villagers and enjoy participating in cultural exchange activities with local students. These experiences will help your students to gain a better idea of the global community as well as benefitting the locals they have met directly.

Get hands on and learn from the locals how to weave baskets or make a broom – which is their main source of income or even learn how to cook traditional food. These trips are special as they leave lasting memories for your students and the communities you meet.

Programmes can be tailor-made to be part of a longer tours and you can also link in the Duke of Edinburgh awards too. For more information get in touch directly with us here at Voyager Worldwide and come experience a brand new type of tour that will benefit everyone involved!

  • A warm welcome awaits
  • Local children enjoy a lesson of their own
  • A traditional stilt house

Vietnam experience

Hoa Binh Province is situated in a magnificent valley 150 km southwest of Hanoi. This wonderful area is now home to a Thai ethnic minority, who live in remarkable wooden stilt houses. Our team of experts have been working in this beautiful valley for over a decade. In the past two years, they have been working particularly closely with the community on a number of construction projects to improve their agricultural and farming systems.

You can come and spend 2 or 3 days with this community and learn how to construct and weave baskets or learn how to make traditional Vietnamese food from the locals. If you wish we can tailor make a programme to suite your needs and even link this to the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme. Get in touch with Voyager Worldwide today for more information.

What you will do

Arrive at the village and one of our dedicated team will walk you around the village and introduce you to the locals. See village life first hand and once settled in you will have the chance for a Q&A session on the area and what to expect over the next few days. The group will be split into smaller groups and then taught how to prepare and make traditional Vietnamese food.

The following day you will then learn how to weave your own baskets and also meet with with a local primary school, so you can interact with students and teachers alike.

Could this be the perfect trip for your school?

Cambodia experience

Just an hour away from Siem Reap, you will start your interaction program with a local community. This rural area is home to around 15,000 people who rely on agriculture for the majority of their income.

The biggest issues they face are the unavoidable issues of poor weather, a decline in the natural materials they use in their handicrafts and limited access to quality education.

By visiting this community you will bring much needed tourism to the area which in turn will bring the community much needed prosperity.

What you will do

The day out will be based at village about an hour away from Siem Reap. You will visit an elementary school, as well as a junior high school. The students will also learn how to make brooms and learn why this is an important livelihood in the community.

The tour ends with an ox-cart ride through the field and a monk-blessing ceremony which I think they’ll enjoy! If you wish to extend your visit, get in touch with the team for a tailor made itinerary.
