Bruce Peng

Previously I was a crew member working on an international cruise ship. My love for travel led me to join Odynovo Tours. 10 years of working experience have allowed me to visit various countries in Southeast Asia. Experience the long history and majestic architecture of Angkor Wat, Halong Bend, a masterpiece of nature, and the unique jungle trekking in Borneo. I love sharing my travel experiences with my guests. My love for travel lies in the travel itself. I love seeing people's smiles, whether it's visiting beautiful places or tasting local food. I wish I could share some of the experiences I had with more people. Some say travel is spiritual reading. During travel, you can learn about the wonders of the world, learn about different cultures, explore historical civilizations, etc. The world is like a wonderful encyclopedia. If you don’t travel, you will only see a corner of the world.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I have a deep understanding of the history and culture of Southeast Asian countries. Whether you want to plan your own honeymoon, or your wedding anniversary, I have the confidence to plan a satisfactory itinerary for you. I also love children very much and spend time with them a lot. If you are a parent traveling with children, please feel free to leave your travel plans to me."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Working on a cruise ship at sea has allowed me to travel to various countries. But I found that I really wanted to go and travel in person, not just on the surface. So I joined Odynovo Tours in pursuit of my dream and became a professional tour customizer."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"In 2017, I visited Malaysian Borneo. At Shandahe, I took a cruise on the Kinabatangan River. Proboscis monkeys, Asian elephants, Borneo golden cats, it seems like a paradise for wild animals, I have never been so surprised by the integration of nature and animals. Here is a paradise. You can't feel the troubles of life here, only the peace of mind."

Thailand in March: Travel Tips, Weather, and More

March is a fabulous month to visit Thailand. The weather is still pleasant, especially in the first half of the month, although the southern beaches will start getting some rain along the Andaman Sea. It's also the beginning of mango season, and throughout the country, the colorful fruit is piled high at roadside stands and on people's plates mixed with sticky rice. Best of all, the hot season hasn't arrived yet (which is often uncomfortably warm) so you can walk around outside without being miserable.
