A chance to visit Vietnam while taking time for yourself.

I have a dream – a trip with my woman friend, exploring and learning about the people and culture of Vietnam.  The trip would be especially designed for women who like to travel with other women and learn from women.

We will travel Vietnam with a group of like minded women, but we won’t just be traveling.  We will delve deeper into the country by having meaningful conversations with women who make a difference.

The trip will start off in Hanoi where we will take a cooking class at a school that supports disadvantaged youth by offering them a hand up.  We will meet women who run non-profits that fight human trafficking and hear their stories.  We will also visit the Vietnam Woman’s Museum and enjoy the many beautiful sights Hanoi has to offer.

From there we will head to the beautiful town of Hoi An where we will have plenty of time to relax (sitting pool side and beach side) and a visit to one of Hoi An’s famous tailors.  Hoi An is famous for the many scenes filmed in The Quiet American and where Anthony Bourdain has made his “home away from home”. Go to my video page in my store to do some research on visiting Vietnam.

From Hoi An we will visit Ho Chi Minh City to check out the bustling markets, museums and wonderful restaurants.

A short flight from HCMC is Siem Reap, the home of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and an incredible people. Our mornings will be spent visiting the temples, in the afternoon we will learn more about what life is really like in Cambodia for the millions who live here.
