DMN Vietnam Study Tour 2022 – Join us and your fellow Members for an experience of a lifetime

It’s been a long time coming for this spectacular annual event!  Those Members who have joined DMN on previous International Study Tours to South America, Europe and Japan are excited to get on board for this one.  This 16 day architectural guided tour will take you on an intoxicating journey through majestic Vietnam to visit Ho Chi Minh’s French Colonial architecture, Danang’s Biophilic Designed hotels, UNESCO’s Heritage listed My Son, tour the Hue Citadel and Imperial City, meet local designers and architects who will lead you through Hanoi’s unique buildings and so much more.  Enjoy a 2 night stay on a traditional houseboat on, yes you guessed it the stunning Ha Long Bay, cycle the cities, savour the beautiful cuisine and enjoy the company of likeminded people.  
You will not only learn about the rich fabric of Vietnam’s architecture and dedication to sustainability but also have time to explore on your own.  This International Study Tour has been the foundation of many lifelong friendships amongst our members and we look forward to welcoming new travellers to join us in what is going to be a bucket list experience.
