Location and highlights
Blue Dragon's office is located in Hue, Vietnam. Located on the banks of the beautifully named Song Huong (Perfume River), Hue is often labelled as one of the most charming towns in the country and has a long and illustrious history as its previous royal capital city. From the rambling ancient architecture to some of the best food Vietnam has to offer, Hue has the right balance of new and old at every budget.
The Hue activity typically includes day trips out to poor communities where students experience Blue Dragon's rural outreach. Students may be challenged with situations of poverty and the difficult conditions that are reality for the children and families living in Hue province.
