Obstetrics, Fertility and Gynaecology in Vietnam

25 Mar - 3 Apr 2018
  • Medical & Professional Tours
+ Optional extension: Angkor Wat, Cambodia

About the tour

Learn about obstretrics and gynaecology alongside a cultural itinerary that lets you enjoy the best of a richly rewarding destination - Vietnam. There is also an optional extension to Cambodia, which in turn offers visitors one of the greatest of mankind's architectural achievements - the vast Angkor Temple complex.

Vietnam is a popular destination with an unique historical legacy which is still in evidence today, from the junk boats in Halong Bay to the Imperial Citadel in Hue (modeled on the Forbidden City in Beijing), and the neo-classical French architecture of Hanoi. The Vietnamese people are some of the friendliest you are likely to encounter anywhere in Asia and their genuine smiles are an enduring memory for almost every visitor.
