Gap Year in Vietnam

War-torn for decades, Vietnam is one of the latest ‘secret’ destinations – but backpackers have been aware of its charms for years. If you’re looking for a Gap Year that’s a little spicier than most, then Vietnam could be just the place.


It’s not an easy choice: bureaucracy and language barriers put off the travel-cowards. But if you want to eat the world’s best noodle soup, explore World Heritage caves, and buy beer at 10p a glass, then get there before the tourists do.
