WHEN, WHERE AND HOW MUCH?
We have scheduled courses to begin on a monthly basis throughout 2018. Notice that they do not always begin on the 1st of every month. You may choose between three locations Vietnam and Cambodia (for the truly adventurous!).
We advise that you submit your application at least 3 months before your chosen date as spots fill up quickly.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
While you will receive the same VIP treatment at all the training centres, there are some differences between the cities in which each are based. The choice is up to you! See our City Guide for more info.
Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam and everything you have heard about the craziness of Vietnamese motorbike traffic comes from here. The organized chaos of this city is what makes living here such a novel and vibrant experience! A great introduction into urban Vietnamese culture; the food is fantastic and everywhere and the people are warm and welcoming.
From HCMC, the South of Vietnam is easily explored by bike or bus. Places to go include: Mui Ne, and Vung Tau for beach adventures, Cu Chi tunnels for historical insights and the sprawling Mekong Delta, the rice basket of the world!
rice, rice everywhere!
The capital. The king in the North! In many ways, HCMC and Hanoi are seen as antitheses of one another. This you can discover for yourself. Be that as it may, Hanoi has a charm all its own. The old quarter, and backpacker district, is a battle ground of old and new. Flourishing small businesses sardined between ancient temples, themselves held together by creeping tree roots.
The North of Vietnam is a fabled land of mountain passes and terraced rice fields, and Hanoi is a great place to begin any bike trip in this part of the country. Don't miss Sapa, Ha Giang and of course Ha Long Bay.
Ninh Binh, Vietnam
Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Phnom Penh is a bustling SE Asian city, not unlike it neighbours to the West. However, the remnants of the ancient Khmer culture are what give Cambodia a flavour that is quite unique. Orange-robed monks stride through the streets, alongside backpackers and urban Cambodians alike, to and from the ubiquitous temples dotted around the tight neighbourhoods of the city. With such a rich and tumultuous history, Cambodia really is a fantastic place for living and teaching.
Cambodia has long been a revered travel destination for its wealth of cultural, but also natural beauty. Some places to go: Siem Reap (Angkor Wat) is arguably one of the most beautiful examples of ancient stone architecture. You also can't go wrong in Koh Rong, a great beach and diving paradise.
