Travel & Taste Vietnam & Cambodia: Natural History, Wildlife, and Culture
Join us on an exploration of the vibrant nation of Vietnam. Known for its mountainous landscapes, dense tropical rainforests, vast cave systems, beautiful beaches, and meandering river deltas, the country is rich in natural history. The area is also a hotspot for biodiversity and is home to 16% of the world's flora and fauna species, of which, nearly 10% are threatened with extinction. Our adventure will take us around the majestic, uninhabited, karst limestone islands and caves of Ha Long Bay and through the wet mountainous region of Sapa. There, Hmong tribal women guide us through indigenous villages, terraced rice paddies, and bamboo forests and we come face to face with wild pigs and water buffaloes. Away from the countryside, visit the busy city streets, peek into the pungent-smelling outdoor markets, and experience the temples and festivals of Ha Noi and Hoi An. We will then take our journey west to Siem Reap, Cambodia to see the magnificent, ancient temple complex of Angkor Wat. Built in the 12th century, the temples, palaces, and surrounding area served as the capital city to the Khmer empire. Location-themed buffet dinner and lecture or lecture only (7:30pm). Pre-registration required for dinner by 5pm Tuesday, February 18. Online registration available. Walk-ins welcome for the Lecture Only portion.
