Exploring World Heritage
in Vietnam and Cambodia

  September 30 - Oct. 20, 2013   Length: 21 days
  Discover Vietnam’s past and present travelling from Hanoi, its political and cultural capital, south to Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong River Delta, via the ancient imperial capital Hue and the bustling old trading port of Hoian.
