Flights

International flights are not included in this offering so participants are responsible for getting themselves to HCMC on or about Nov 1st.  (Please note that due to flying over the international date line on your way to Vietnam, one whole day disappears, so you’d want to leave on Oct 30th to arrive on the Nov 1st.  Conversely, you gain a day on your return.)  Please contact Dan if you’d like any advice on airlines/routes/stopovers/layovers/tips.
