Megan, Southeast Asia Specialist
I have always had an eye for adventure and a keen interest in Asian culture. When I finished school, I went to India to live and work for three months in Bangalore. Upon returning to the UK, I completed my degree and then took the opportunity to return to Asia, this time going to Vietnam to teach English in Hanoi for six months. Living in this vibrant city provided me with ample opportunity to explore the country. My weekends were filled with trips to the countryside where I was greeted by some of the most breathtaking scenery I had ever come across. I also visited other major towns and cities including Hue, Hoi An, Saigon and Phu Quoc Island. Vietnam’s diversity is one of its greatest assets. Its rich culture and history, bustling cities, beautiful scenery, and most importantly for me, delicious food, make me want to return again and again.

I'll never forget when…
Celebrating Tet (Vietnamese New Year) in the ancient town of Hoi An was a delight. The UNESCO-protected town is renowned for being littered with lanterns and was the most beautiful setting to see in the New Year. As midnight approached I joined the hundreds of people who gathered by the river. Everyone was given a lantern that we then lit and put into the river as we made our New Year’s wishes. As the clock struck midnight the river lit up, the firework display began, and the celebrations commenced. It was a truly magical evening.
