The Youth Ambassadors’ visit to Vietnam was a successful trip with the great support from the Royal Thai Consulate-General in Ho Chi Minh City. The delegation visited many UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as My Son Sanctuary, and Hue Imperial City, as well as numerous significant historical places in Da Nang, Hoi An, Hue, and Ho Chi Minh City such as Linh Ung Pagoda, Marble Mountains, Museum of Cham Sculpture, Khai Dinh Tomb, Imperial Palace, Thein Mu Pagoda, Cu Chi Tunnels and so on. This learning experience has opened their mindset and allowed them to learn from various good models in improving and adapting to new changes and conditions. It has also built up their confidence and encouraged them to become such an important workforce of the nation.
