Step outside of Ho Chi Minh City for a 9-day journey through the north and central regions of Vietnam. Concepts from your Development Studies in Southeast Asia course come to life as you visit local organizations in the field, see how development is affecting minority groups, and speak with locals about the impacts of corruption.
