2017 NCTA Study Tour: Vietnam/Cambodia


June 26-July 12, 2017

This 17-day program offers a combination of guided excursions and free time to explore beaches and ruins, urban culture and awe-inspiring landscapes. Cruise the Mekong for a day. Overnight on a traditional sailing junk in Halong Bay. Witness the heights of Cambodia's past at Angkor Wat, and contemplate its lows by walking the infamous Killing Fields. Although many activities are included, there is still plenty of time to explore on your own and create the ultimate adventure.


Sponsored by the National Consortium for Teaching About Asia, University of Pittsburgh coordinating site. This study tour is open to alumni in good standing of the 30-hour NCTA seminars from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland and Delaware (and the Georgetown University Seminars in 2013 & 2014). Each alumni educator may invite one adult guest to join the travel group.


To enhance the educational impact of the trip, Dr. David Kenley, Professor of Asian History at Elizabethtown College, will travel with the group. He will provide historical and cultural context to enable each teacher to fully capitalize on this unique learning experience.


To offset travel costs, subsidies are available for NCTA alumni from the Pitt NCTA region.
