They say that the only risk in starting an TEFL job in Vietnam is wanting to stay. Vietnam is for anyone craving something a little different. Southeast Asia’s premier nation is bursting with life, culture, and teaching opportunities.

After kayaking all day in Halong Bay until your arms feel like (rice) noodles, dodging motorbikes, and admiring the uniquely French and Chinese elements of its energetic cities, you will be thoroughly enamored with Vietnam. Floating the Mekong River, crawling the Củ Chi tunnels, and sunbathing on the sparkling beaches of Mũi Né and Nha Trang must also make their way to your ESL bucket list.
