Maine Historical Society is pleased to announce its 2018 trip - Vietnam & Cambodia and The Charms of the Mekong!

Two lively cities, Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, provide the perfect start and end to our incredible journey. We will cruise along the Mekong River, visiting rural villages, historic pagodas, local markets and a Buddhist monastery, where we'll be treated to a special blessing by monks. Our inner adventurer spirit will be indulged in Seam Reap, exploring grand temples of Angkor Archeological Park—and we'll be treated to an overnight sojourn on board an elegantly appointed ship in Ha Long Bay.

Eric Baxter from AAA Northern New England and a former MHS Trustee will once again serve as your escort throughout the trip. On this trip you be immersed the history and local culture of Vietnam and Cambodia and will be transported back in time to another era. Authentic experiences in rural villages unspoiled by tourism—some of them floating—are only a few of the many adventures we'll experience on this life enriching journey.
