The Idex programs in Vietnam continue to follow our ethos of “Travel that Matters” and provide an opportunity to the travelers to have a safe, enjoyable experience that leaves them more developed than they were before the start of a trip.

Volunteers on the Vietnam Volunteer program make a significant contribution to people of Vietnam through their energetic contribution.  The people in the Vietnam community return this contribution of the volunteers, by opening their lives, institutions and hearts to international volunteers which eventually leads to the growth, development and maturing of the volunteers. 

All this is managed through the well tested and established processes of Idex to ensure that the interactions and activities are responsible, so as to leave all those involved (communities, volunteers, local institutions) benefited. 

The program is situated at Ho Chi Minh City. Ho Chi Minh City formerly named as Saigon. It is the largest city in Vietnam which is 13 kms far from Tan Son Nhat International airport. It was the capital of French Colony protectorate of Cochin China1862-1954 and South Vietnam the city lies along the Saigon River, to the north of the Mekong river delta about 80 kms from the South China Sea. It is an international tourist destination with a rapid growth. It is one of Vietnam’s most famous sea side towns and there are plenty of tourist attractions.
