Course Description

We will begin our exploration of Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City, where we will experience the changing Vietnam in the form of a modern commercial city. We then will travel to the Mekong Delta, a world of waterways, farming, and rural charm, resting on the South China Sea. We will travel to the center of Vietnam where we will visit historical sites, eat traditional food, and learn more about the Vietnamese culture. We will end our exploration with visits to Hanoi, more like an old colonial city than Ho Chi Minh City, and the stunningly beautiful Halong Bay.
