Vietnam Comprehensive Birding: Best of Indochinese Birding from South to Central

Trip Description

Vietnam is one of the most beautiful, friendly and fascinating countries in Asia and an early season visit there finds the country at its best, the climate
mostly cool, dry, and enjoyable, the winter birds still in, and the resident ones gearing up for breeding. Vietnam hosts, according to your splitting beliefs, no less than 14 true endemic species (and this number continues to increase as
further work is done and new discoveries made), a further 7 or so restricted to Indochina, and a number of very interesting and distinct “subspecies”, several of which are destined to be future splits. A large range of Southeast Asian species of wider distribution and a host of birds wintering from further north add to the richness of this destination.
