Gay and Lesbian Travel in Vietnam

The Pink Way Along the Mighty Mekong

Have you dreamed of exploring the Mekong Delta?  The first-ever LGBT trip through Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong Delta happens October 15-30 2013.  Get packing for this exclusive lesbian and gay travel event.

The Mekong River has its origin in the Tibetan highland plateau 2,800 miles away from the delta. From its source, the river makes its way through China, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and South Vietnam before flowing into the South China Sea.

The Mekong’s Vietnamese name, Cuu Long, means “Nine Dragons” for the nine mouths that terminate the flow of this great river as it is absorbed by the sea.
