Two Vietnamese students have returned from the South Australian city of Adelaide after winning a prize to visit the "Learning City."

Education Adelaide, a government funded institution, said in a statement released Wednesday that Hanh Tran and Minh Ho, both from the Da Nang University of Economics, visited Adelaide from July 15 and spent time with local students at various universities and colleges.

The two won first prizes in a public speaking competition where they talked about environmental programs that Da Nang can adopt to achieve its economics objectives and facilitate the role of young people in developing the city.

Adelaide is the capital city of Australia's third largest state, South Australia. 

Hanh said the experience was a great opportunity to learn about a different culture and explore another part of the world.

Education Adelaide Chief Executive Denise von Wald said Vietnamese visitors and students studying in Adelaide have earned the respect and friendship of South Australians.

"The international students who study in Adelaide help to make our city a more diverse, dynamic place," Ms von Wald said in the statement.

"Students who come here from Vietnam to study benefit from the outstanding education opportunities and experiences in Adelaide, the Nobel Prize capital of Australia," she said.
