Join Dr. Kathleen Ryor, Professor of Art History and Director of Asian Studies at Carleton College, and Jim Smith, an Asian art expert, on this custom-designed land tour focusing on the art history and architecture of Vietnam and Cambodia. From the bustling cities and ageless villages of Vietnam to the jungle settings of Angkor’s great Khmer temples, you will be immersed in the exquisite cultural and natural wonders of Indochina. Highlights include five magnificent UNESCO World Heritage sites: an overnight cruise through Ha Long Bay; the extraordinary Cham temple ruins at My Son; the ancient town of Hoi An; Hue’s complex of historical citadels, imperial tombs, and temples; and four nights in Siem Reap for in-depth exploration of some of Angkor’s dozens of monuments, including Angkor Wat, the Roluos Group, Bayon Temple, and Banteay Srei. The itinerary allows for ample time at the sites, and you will enjoy superb cuisine and at least two nights at almost all of our carefully-chosen hotels.
