Second Vietnam Study Tour Set for J-Term

SEPT. 21, 2007--The second annual study tour of Vietnam, offered by the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in January 2008, is open to any interested student, faculty or community member.

"Although 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," says Claire Kilian, professor of management at UWRF who leads the tour. "Students will get the opportunity to witness Vietnam as it is rapidly changing and embracing tourism and economic development."

The 18-day trip includes exploring the cities of Hanoi and Saigon, Hmong villages in the Northern areas, a boat cruise on Ha Long Bay, villages in the Central highlands (with a stay overnight in a bamboo long house an elephant ride), and sites of the Vietnam War-era, including the Cu Chi tunnels.

The tour includes experienced English-speaking guides, all airfare, trains, lodging, many meals, entry fees, taxes, and Visa. Estimated cost is $3,500.

For more information about the trip, contact Kilian at UWRF: 715-425-3335 or claire.m.kilian@uwrf.edu .
