Delectable Vietnam.

Earlier this year, we ran a Hosted Journey to Vietnam, and Chef Thai Dang of HaiSous Vietnamese Kitchen in Chicago joined us on a sweep through his homeland. That culinary and cultural tour in Vietnam was such a hit—and had such a long waiting list—that we’ve decided to do it again in 2020.
