Vietnam Study Tour Planned

OCT. 6, 2006--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is offering a study tour of Vietnam in January 2007. The tour is open to any interested student, faculty or community member. The tour includes an experienced English-speaking guide, all airfare, trains, lodging, most meals, entry fees, tips, taxes, and visa.

While most Americans associate Vietnam with war, it is also a country with a 4,000-year history, 53 culturally distinct ethnic minorities, magnificent scenery, and some of the friendliest, but poorest, people in the world. Participants on the tour will see Vietnam in a new light as it is rapidly changing and embracing tourism and economic development.

This two-week trip includes exploring Hanoi, H'mong villages in the Northern areas of Lao Cai and Sapa, boat cruises on Ha Long Bay and the Mekong River, Danang, Hoi An (the infamous "China Beach"), and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). 

For more information, contact Claire Kilian, UW-RF associate professor of business administration, 715-425-3335 or claire.m.kilian@uwrf.edu .
