Simultaneously, the female student delegation explored heritage and recreational landmarks in Vietnam. They visited Ninh Binh, a city in northern Vietnam, renowned for its natural scenery, mountains, forests, and archaeological sites.

The students enjoyed a boat trip on the Trang Han River, passing through caves with suspended salts. The delegation also toured Dabak Province, witnessing the multi-purpose rural development project funded by the Kuwaiti Fund. Dao Trang Dat, the project’s deputy director, explained its positive impact, emphasizing elements like a school with 25 classrooms accommodating 400 students and a concrete-paved internal village road.
