How to get there


The school is located in Hanoi, within walking distance or a bus ride away from your accommodation. (about 10KM far from STA-House) Hanoi is a pleasant city with a European feel, and you will find many attractive lakes, parks and boulevards to explore. Hanoi is less polluted and noisy than Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnams largest city, and is home to many interesting museums, temples and pagodas. You will be staying in a guest house in the lively Old Quarter of Hanoi, where you will have easy access to internet cafes, banks and shops
