    My visit to Hanoi University has greatly emphasised the cultural and lifestyle differences between Australia and Vietnam.

    Walking through the campus, I was comparing every sight to those I am used to seeing at The University of Queensland.

    At VNU, the buildings, activities, social lives, parking systems, and colleges particularly highlighted differences between the two universities.

    I tried to remain a distant observer to these cultural differences, but being the tall, caucasian, western-looking girl among the Vietnamese meant I stuck out completely and drew many stares.

    Regardless, I still managed to document a glimpse of student life at VNU through these photographs.
