October 6 to 21, 2020

Travel with Professor Barton “Buzz” Thompson, ’73, MBA ’76, JD ’76, through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, stopping at the villages that are dependent on the resources provided by the region’s extensive river system for economic, social and spiritual survival.

Classic cruising. Spend four nights aboard the luxurious Aqua Mekong, the ideal vessel for navigating the famous Mekong River. Pak it all in. During our stay in the charming, idyllic village of Luang Prabang, wander up the Mekong River and visit the Pak Ou Caves, two limestone caves that house thousands of Buddha images. Ancient and modern capitals. Explore the ancient capital and archaeological site of Angkor. In sharp contrast, take in modern Hanoi and marvel at the bustle of life in the Old Quarter.
