There are so many places around the world whose name alone evokes an emotional response; and when it comes to luxury travel the response is naturally a positive emotion. You're going to discover Vietnam; and there is no other country in the world that means to us what it does. Of course we're going to see the ancient culture and structures, the Oriental and exotic land; the Lowlands and Highlands, the varied ethnic groups isolated in their mountain perches as if cut off from time. Lush green rice paddies that never end, all tended and tilled by hand to this day!!!! However, as Americans, there is also the other Vietnam that marked the lives of not just our brave brethren who went but all Americans old enough to remember that turbulent period on the home front; made more so by the events in Southeast Asia. The war is long since over on the calendar and from the perspective of the Vietnamese people it's clearly long since forgotten; but many of the men who went to fight want to return to see this land that meant so much to them in their youth. We will therefore cover both the beautiful, exotic and ancient aspects of Vietnam, as well as visit several of the major battlefield sites, like Khe Sanh. Join us on this President''s Choice Event this Fall!
