The most valuable internship of The Faculty of Tourism's students (Course 25)

(VLU, 09/5/2021)In April, the Faculty of Tourism - Van Lang University organized an internship for students of course 25, majoring in Tourism & Travel Service Management. The journey lasted 12 days with the participation of more than 250 students and 9 lecturers.

We have visited 11 provinces: Lam Dong, Dak Lak, Gia Lai, Kon Tum, Khanh Hoa, Binh Dinh, Quang Nam, Da Nang, Hue, Quang Binh, Quang Tri. We have also seen, heard and felt to recognize and mark on the map of these lands. Each destination is a color which perhaps later, we will still be nostalgic when thinking about student life!

Infatuated the culture of the Highlands

The clock struck 5 o'clock, 7 cars of the delegation went straight to the Highlands to take us to visit the tourist area of Don village in Dak Lak province, and learn about the daily lifestyle as well as how to build houses of the ethnic communities in the Highlands.

One memorable thing was that we first experienced the "Exchange of Cong Chieng in the Highlands" with the Gia Rai ethnics. The burning fire in the middle of the great forest, the sound of cong chieng resounding, the aroma of “can” wine infatuated everyone.

After Gia Lai city, the whole group was excited for the third day. We visited Linh Son Orphanage to support the aunts and uncles and play with the children. Students and teachers of Faculty of Tourism gave amount of money to orphanage, as an annual activity of the faculty.

12 days 11 nights… not just an internship

Closing the journey of 12 days and 11 nights, we have traveled together with countless memories. The teachers, guides and representatives of the travel company dedicatedly and sincerely helped us learn many things from the journey. We are trained in the skills that a professional tour guide needs to have. They include the profession of instruction, the profession of narration, the presentation of the car, how to check-in - check-out for guests, how to create sympathy with guests, teamwork skills, photography skills, and so on.

Not only enjoying, each of us has a notebook, photos at each destination. They will be our handbook in the future.

The activities of the journey became beautiful memories of friendship, teacher-student love. For me, the visited - places are places that I have only seen through pictures before. I was touched when I heard the narration at Quang Tri ancient citadel; enjoyed the ancient beauty of Hue Citadel, the tomb of Tu Duc King; impressed with peaceful scenery at Pleiku sea lake and Hoi An city; overwhelmed with the majestic beauty of Phong Nha Cave, Eo Gio - Ky Co, Da Dia rapids and so on. With these experiences, we love the lands more as well as love the career that we will embark on in the future.
