"A dreamer with a genuine desire for travel and adventure". I love my wonderful country and always want to share my passion for Vietnam with others. My dream came true when I graduated from university and started working as a professional journey planner.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. Culture & Local Life, Nature & Active, Tailor-made Trip, Family Vacation, Food Experience, Rest & Relaxation, Value for Money."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I grew up following my father on many business trips from the north to the south of Vietnam. Whenever he didn't bother with work, he took me to discover new places, talk to local people to learn more about the culture of each region and enjoy local specialties. And then I realized that traveling is exactly the thing I would like to do for the rest of my life. It is so much more than simply seeing the sights – that travel, and the things you learn from it, can actually change your life."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"It was a very first trip to Cao Bang with my college friends in freshman year. We went on the trip by motorbikes which is the thing I had never done before and it was fun, full of joy and happiness. I loved the friendliness of the local people. I loved the diversity of the scenery. It was a road trip, and the countryside can change around each bend. But most importantly, it was the trip with some people that I will treasure forever. All in all add all these things together and without a doubt will find myself coming back for more."

Thanks for planning a wonderful trip for my wife, daughter and me to Vietnam and Cambodia. The itinerary provided a number of diverse experiences, ranging from visits to historical sites, such as the Hoa Lo prison in Hanoi; introduction to the varying geography of northern Vietnam, ranging from rice fields to hill villages in Mai Chau to coastal areas to the river and caves of Trang An Eco-Tourism Complex; visits to cultural sites, such as Angkor in Cambodia, Hoa Lu, the ancient capital of Vietnam, and the old city of Hoi An; fun tourist sites, such as Ha Long Bay, and the hiking, biking and kayaking along the way. The itinerary was paced just right, with a number of sites and activities, but also including down time. Our guides were the best: Si in Hanoi and its environs, Rati in Angkor, and Nina in Phnom Penh were all highly qualified and in addition to explaining the sites to us, allowed us to get to know them as individuals and friends. The hotels were all comfortable, with staff who went out of their way to see to our needs. The three most memorable highlights of the trip were spending the night on the boat in Ha Long bay (along with the swimming and kayaking), experiencing Angkor Wat and its nearby temples, and touring the genocide museum in Phnom Penh. Without exception, we found the people of Vietnam and Cambodia to be welcoming and friendly and would love to return to these wonderful countries.
