Vietnam Study Tour Offered in January

OCT. 5, 2009 | A third annual study tour of Vietnam, offered by the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in January 2010, is open to any interested student, faculty or community member.

The 17-day trip includes exploring the cities of Hanoi and Saigon, overnight on a junk in Halong Bay, village stays (sleeping in bamboo houses) and much more. This year’s trip also includes visits to Luang Praband as well as Laos.

"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 and director of the M.B.A. program at UWRF who leads the tour. "Tour participants will get the opportunity to witness Vietnam as it is rapidly changing and embracing tourism and economic development."

The tour cost of $4,300 includes airfare (from MSP), lodging, transportation, some food and most fees except for a few meals/drinks and personal souvenirs. For more information about the trip, contact Kilian at 715-425-3335 or claire.m.kilian@uwrf.edu.
