From Ohio University to Ho Chi Minh city

Posted by SE Vietnam - Student Exchange Vietnam

At the beginning of May, we’re very honored to welcome a group of 17 faculty members and staffs from Ohio University to Ho Chi Minh city. During their 7-day trip, we have tried our best to bring them better sense of Vietnamese lifestyle and working environment. Let’s see how much they enjoy Vietnam culture and environment!

  1. An eagerness to explore famous destinations in Vietnam. 

Despite just getting off a long-haul flight, faculty and staffs from Ohio University are still very excited to explore Ho Chi Minh city. Cameras are all ready to capture the beautiful images of famous landmarks such as: Pho Binh Restaurant, the Central Post Office and City Hall.

         2.         An willingness to understand the local people.

One special thing about faculty and staffs of Ohio University is that they’re really ready to get to know the local people. Wherever they go, they try their best to communicate with Vietnamese as an attempt to know more deeply about this city. They also do a great job in learning basic Vietnamese.

     3.          A readiness to try new things

A strange culture cannot prevent them from fully enjoying the trip. A trip to Mekong Delta shows them a different aspect of Vietnam.

We hope this 7-day trip somehow helps faculty and staffs from Ohio University feel the spirit of  Vietnam life. They also inspire us with their happy energy and curiosity. Wish you all the best wishes and see you next time, Ohio University!
