CIEE teachers are placed in the country’s bustling urban center, Hanoi, in the northern region.
The capital of Vietnam and its second-largest city, Hanoi is a fascinating blend of Eastern and Western influences, combining traditional Sino-Vietnamese motifs with French flair. Largely unscathed from decades of war, it is now going through a building boom, making it one of the more rapidly developing cities in Southeast Asia. Yet unlike many metropolises on the rise, Hanoi is evolving gracefully, harmonizing the old with the new.
